  • Forklift Review: Design

CT Power’s most recent innovation is a line of electric counterbalance forklifts with a streamlined, modern, and compact design that allows for greater handling to enhance operator and equipment safety and comfort.

Continuous innovation and upgrades over the years have produced a CT Power diesel forklift range that is robust, designed for higher capacity and stronger loading capabilities; a 20% increase in strength in the unibody frames achieves better handling across uneven surfaces and curvy paths, able to withstand long and rigorous transporting operations.

CT Power Forklifts are designed with your operator, operations and the environment in mind. Safety to greater performance delivery, and easier handling whilst remaining affordable and cost-effective to maintain.

  • Innovation that equates to lower customer operating costs

The early models of the CT Power Forklifts required minor servicing every 250 hours, a major service every 500 hours, and an extreme major service every 1000 hours / 12 months. Today, its diesel forklift models are competitive with major worldwide brands and require fewer maintenance cycles. Every 250 hours, minor services are required, and every 1000 hours / 12 months, a major service is required. This illustrates CT Power’s dedication to providing long-term customer value through lowering maintenance expenditures, resulting in lower operational costs for our customers.

  • Blue and red forklift safety lights are now a standard safety feature

Forklifts have blue spotlights and red side parameter lights to warn individuals of impending danger, oncoming vehicles, and/or danger zones. CT Power is the first brand in the industry to make both the blue and red safety lights a standard safety feature on its electric forklifts, allowing customers across all material handling industries to improve the safety of their workers and operations.
