Combilift Ltd has launched the Combilift C6000 GT forklift, a truck aimed at accessing the huge US steel services distribution industry.

Combilift US sales manager Tommy Cadden told Forkliftaction.com News that the industry had used similar stand-up trucks for decades, but most were electrics.

"Combilift decided to release a stand-up product that could be directly interchangeable with the existing machines," he said. "The unique thing about the Combilift C6000 GT is that it's designed to operate inside and outside.

"The response has been very positive."

First seen at NA 2004 in Cleveland, the C6000 GT is a 6,000 pound (2.7 tonnes) capacity sideloader with an LP gas engine and a 30-foot (9.1 metres) lift height. The truck is also available in a 10,000 pound (4.5 tonnes) lift capacity.

The propane IC engine allows indoor and outdoor operation, eliminating double handling and the costs and space required for batteries and battery and charging facility maintenance. Super-elastic cushion tyres on the rear provide load stability in rough yards and comfort for the stand-up operator.

Mr Cadden said the GT was being manufactured in Ireland and distributed through the company's 40 exclusive dealers throughout the USA.
