Running 8-hour shifts can be tough on a forklift operator’s shoulder, back and other joints, but the Cat EC25EN electric cushion tire lift truck features the latest technology in operator ergonomics. An adjustable full-suspension seat comes standard and makes tackling gravel and rough terrain a breeze.
“I spent all day last Saturday on it and didn’t want to get off of it at the end of the day,” says Lift Truck Driver, Torkey Graham.
William Polston, lead of shipping and receiving at SAF Holland, referred to the full-suspension seat as “one of the best innovations we’ve seen.”
The optional fingertip controls allow for effortless operation of the hydraulic function, horn and direction through a seat-mounted armrest, which means the operator doesn’t have to reach far for everything they need. “Easier operation,” says Polston.
Add a narrow steering column for a roomy operator cabin, plenty of storage and optional USB charging ports and that 8-hour shift looks a lot more appealing.
