Cat Lift Trucks has delivered its first new P8000-P12000 / PD8000-PD12000 series of internal combustion pneumatic tire lift trucks to the Columbian TecTank manufacturing facility in Parsons, Kansas. Columbian TecTank, which designs manufactures and installs factory coated storage tank systems, will use the new Cat trucks to move carbon and stainless steel products throughout their 250,000-square-foot facility. After a thorough search for a product that would enhance productivity and decrease operating costs, Columbian TecTank concluded that the P8000-P12000 / PD8000-PD12000 series would best fit their business needs.
“We are excited to be the first in the country to receive this new series of Cat lift trucks,” said Steve Allen, director of operations for Columbian TecTank. “The new Cat lift trucks will allow us to provide quality products to our customers and a more efficient workplace for our employees.”
The new series is just one of five new families of Cat lift trucks announced earlier this year and is equipped with standard high-performance features such as an EPA-compliant purePOWER engine, two speed forward and one speed reverse transmission and an LED/LCD display panel, which features such tools as an operator passcode system and maintenance interval reminders.
“This new line of internal combustion pneumatic tire lift trucks reflects significant advances in the development of our products and enhances the array of models available to our customers,” said Jeff Rufener, vice president of marketing for Cat Lift Trucks. “Our mission is to continue to produce equipment that will provide our customers with the best in operator comfort and control for improved productivity. We make durable and hard-working equipment, and we are proud to say that these lift trucks set new standards for us and the lift truck industry.”
