*Combi-CUBE launched in Stuttgart
As Combilift celebrates 25 years of innovation, the Monaghan based company plans to ensure that 2023 will be a year to remember, by launching multiple products across various exhibitions on a global scale!
To kick off, the newest product – the COMBi-CUBE was launched in Germany at the LogiMAT International Intralogistics show in Stuttgart.
This new electric model incorporates a host of technological and design features that not only enhance handling procedures but also offer a high level of driver comfort.
Immediately noticeable is the new vibrant colour – this bold fresh Combi-green shade will contribute to improved safety as the trucks will be easily visible in their operational environment. Aside from optics however, a focus is on a number of ergonomic features.
The driver’s position in the centre of the cab offers generous room and excellent all-round visibility. The angle of the telescopic steering column can be adjusted and the Grammer MSG65 seat, combined with hydraulic cabin mounts guarantees a comfortable ride. An adjustable arm rest is mounted to the seat suspension which incorporates a multi-function joystick and an LCD colour touch screen.
Combilift’s unique dynamic 3600 steering that enables seamless directional change while on the move can be integrated into the Combi-CUBE as an optional extra, making it the most manoeuvrable counterbalance forklift on the market.
Further notable features are the large rear wheel and rubber tyres on all three wheels. This means that, unlike certain other brands of electric multidirectional trucks, this model is not restricted to super flat floors and is eminently suitable for working indoors and out, ensuring that semi-rough terrain is no impediment to reliable operation. And for quicker battery changeover during heavy shifts, two new easy-change roll-out lead-acid batteries are provided. Lithium-ion batteries can also be fitted but are less sustainable and has recyclability issues.
Combilift CEO and Co-Founder Martin McVicar said in a live stream broadcast from the event: “Our engineers and R&D department have been tirelessly preparing for a year of new launches, and the Combi-CUBE is proof of our continued commitment to provide the best and most innovative handling solutions for our worldwide customers.”
