Combilift unveiled its new addition to the compact, multidirectional counterbalance design Combi-CB range at the GIS show in Piacenza, Italy. The Combi-CBE 4t has a capacity of 4,000kg and is based on the original and very successful Combi-CB which was launched in 2008. Until now the electric models in the range have been available with a maximum lift capacity of 3,000kg.

The all-wheel drive Combi-CBE 4t, coupled with large rubber tyres, allows the truck to work effortlessly indoors and out and on all types of terrains. Its versatility enables it to offload from HGVs, bring product directly to racking or free stacking areas, as well as to feed production lines. Combined with load sensing steering and no fumes, this makes it ideal for indoor warehouse operations.

MD Martin McVicar explained that the new model was developed in response to a specific customer request for heavier lift capacities on electric forklift trucks. “As a customer focused company, Combilift strives to provide our dealers and customers with machines that not only do the job but also save them money. This forklift is particularly interesting for the Italian market where 93% of forklifts are electric. This launch also underlines the continued expansion of our product range.” The Combi-CBE 4t has now been delivered to Mirrione Legnami, a leading timber supplier in Sicily.
