Combilift unveiled its new multidirectional electric forklift, the Combi-CB70E, at Ligna, an international timber and woodworking show.

The company says its new model, the shortest 7 T capacity counterbalance forklift [BA1] on the market, is ideally suited for the operational demands of the timber industry.

Combilift chief executive and co-founder Martin McVicar says: “The increased capacities that we are offering in our electric range will answer the demand for ever more powerful products which at the same time help companies to achieve their aims for more sustainable operations.” 

Combilift also revealed its new optional Auto Swivel Seat that automatically swivels the seat and armrest 15 degrees to the right or left to accord with the direction of travel selected by the operator, a feature designed to reduce driver strain, particularly when travelling in reverse.
