Cat Lift Trucks has announced a successor to its popular 2.5 to 3.5 T 80V counterbalance range.

The new Cat EP25-35AN trucks are equipped with the Responsive Drive System (RDS) which adapts performance characteristics rapidly in reaction to the speed of accelerator pedal and hydraulic control movements. It also smooths out all stops, starts and other actions.

Other automatic aids include PowerBurst, which kicks in when an extra burst of acceleration or climbing torque is needed to maintain rapid motion. Intelligent curve control ensures smooth and safe cornering, while electronic differential locking boosts confidence on slippery surfaces.

Two advances in automated hydraulic technology, the SmoothFlow hydraulic system and automatic hydraulic control tuning, enable smoother, faster and safer load handling. These optimise mast and fork movements according to load weights and lift heights. During higher lifts, passive sway control allows absorption of mast tilting forces by the chassis.

From the driver’s perspective, all simultaneous or individual hydraulic actions are controlled effortlessly via light but responsive fingertip levers or the option of dual joysticks. At the same time, design tweaks have improved the all-round view to aid accurate positioning of the truck and its loads.

Customers can choose between lead-acid or fully integrated Li-ion battery power. Li-ion technology enhances the trucks’ capabilities and allows fast opportunity charging for continuous operation without battery changes.
