Briggs Equipment has extended its product range to include the DP/GP IC-powered Cat Lift trucks.

The updated diesel and LPG-powered range comes with a digital display unit that warns drivers if an unexpected fault occurs and provides error codes to ensure that engineers bring the right parts for repair.

An engine timer keeps track of hours worked, providing a countdown that helps fleet managers schedule regular maintenance.

Tony Rooney, sales and marketing director at Briggs Equipment, said: ‘The lift trucks offer new improvements including upgrading the rear axle mount from a rubber fitting to a metal bush and electronic engine control.’ Safety has advanced with an optional improved visibility overhead guard, specified to replace the standard longitudinal steel-bar design.

This design gives improved lines of sight when working with loads at height and maintains the high level of protection from falling objects offered by a standard overhead guard.

The Presence Detection System (PDS) is standard on the new trucks.

This uses a seat switch to ensure the operator is correctly seated before allowing access to the truck’s hydraulic functions, preventing the risk of accidents.

Briggs’ range comprises electric, LPG and diesel-powered counterbalanced trucks and a range of warehouse handling solutions including power-pallet trucks, stackers, low- and high-level order pickers, reach trucks and turret trucks.
