The Fork Lift Trucks Association's (FLTA) Nominations Committee has confirmed the Cat® NR14-25N2 range as finalist in the Ergonomics category of the Awards for Excellence 2015.

The NR14-25N2 range of reach trucks is a perfect candidate for the Ergonomics Award for many reasons. A totally redesigned adjustable armrest combines anatomical support with free movement and perfect hand positioning. It features spring-force-optimised fingertip hydraulic controls or, if preferred, an intuitive joystick control option.

The operator compartment is wide, unobstructed and comfortable. Convenient grab handles and an intermediate step are also provided. It offers operators exceptional all-round visibility, thanks to the unique design of the fork carriage, overhead guard and poweRamic mast. The ultra-low seating allows easy access to the spacious, protective cabin and offers operators exceptional headroom.

An angled full colour screen makes operators aware of travel speed, drive-wheel direction, battery charge and other vital truck information – without the need for looking down.  

All these features show that in designing its new NR-N2 reach truck range, Cat® Lift Trucks has focused on empowering operators. The results can be seen in those innovative ergonomics. Next to this, class-leading residual capacities, high energy efficiency and low maintenance of this range help increasing profitability and maximizing performance in the warehouse.

The range
There are eleven models to choose from, with a capacity range from 1.4 to 2.5 tonnes. They include compact and straddle versions, ideal for use in drive-in racking and small spaces, as well as heavy duty and high performance models for large loads and intensive applications. The many options include modifications for extremely cold or hot environments.

After the nomination as finalist, comes the voting that will start with a special supplement in the December edition of Handling & Storage Solutions Magazine. This will initiate a public vote, primarily among truck owners and operators, to decide a winner in each category. All public voting will be on line via the FLTA website (Awards). Voting will close on 15th January 2015.

The winners will be unveiled in the Awards Ceremony that will be held as part of a lavish gala dinner at the International Centre, Telford on Saturday 28th February 2015. Tickets can now be booked via the FLTA website.

More Ergonomics
Besides maintenance costs and energy consumption, the costs in the long run are also being determined by an ergonomic design. If the driver feels at ease and can work through the entire shift without getting tired, it will make a positive impact on the desired productivity.
