RUGGED DEPENDABILITY FUEL EFFICIENT POWER The powerful 6 cylinder S6S-T diesel engine at the heart of these trucks, is designed to the highest standards. It is quiet, fuel efficient and exceeds EURO level IIIA emission regulations.

The small diameter steering wheel with full hydrostatic steering assistance, used in conjunction with the smooth hydraulic controls, affords quick and precise operation with little effort.

Floating on tough rubber engine mounting blocks virtually eliminates vibration to the operator’s compartment, which helps keep the operator focussed and productive.

Monitoring progress, the comprehensively equipped instrument panel provides valuable on-the-go information and warning signals to the driver, allowing maximum control.

Smooth 2-speed auto shift transmission gives smooth acceleration, protects the gearbox and keeps the load safe. Also, possible misuse of the truck is prevented as it is not possible to start in high gear, while transmission can be locked in lower gears for added torque and slower speeds when required.

MASTS AND HYDRAULICS The rigid mast channels are designed to resist flexing for safe handling of wide loads at height, for example. Also the clever use of small diameter lift cylinders and strategic location of the hydraulic lines ensure excellent forward visibility through the wide mast.

For safe and efficient braking, these models are fitted with vacuum assisted hydraulic drum brakes.

The hydraulics are free from energy loss in neutral and feature a high-flow pump controlling 3 valves for tilt, lift and attachment. There are also 3 extra valves for options, which include shaft-type and hook-type carriages and integrated side-shifter.

ERGONOMIC OPERATOR’S COMPARTMENT Access to and from the truck is easy thanks to the conveniently placed grab bars and footsteps. Once seated, the operator can position the tilting steering column and adjustable seat to suit which, combined with the generous leg room and ‘through-the-floor’ foot pedals, keeps the operator relaxed and productive.

EASY SERVICE ACCESS Daily Checks are quick and easy as battery, coolant and oil levels etc, are all within easy view and reach. Routine maintenance can also be performed quickly, as the engine hood opens wide on tough gas cylinders, ensuring easy access to the engine compartment.

FINGER TIP OR LEVER CONTROL to choose from depending on driver’s preference

FULL SUSPENSION SEAT includes a seat switch to detect the operator’s presence

These heavy-duty 6.0 and 7.0 tonne diesel engine lift trucks are designed around a robust chassis, heavy duty steer axle and rigid masts that invite long life and high performance. Built to last and easy to maintain, these workhorses will deliver dependable productivity shift after shift.


DP80-160N Modern, stylish and practical, these lift trucks incorporate advanced ergonomic design for maximum operating efficiency, easy maneuvering in tight areas, plus high levels of driver comfort and safety. The compartment has been carefully designed so that the operator benefits from a panoramic viewpoint and the ergonomic siting of controls and pedals that are within easy reach of the adjustable seating position. The purposeful design of the trucks and curved styling of the counterweight, with integral lights, encase machines built for concentrated performance and effortless productivity. Masts are mounted over the front axle, on durable and friction-free rotating points reducing forces transmitted to the chassis. The design incorporates rigid mast channels that are fabricated for increased and reliable performance, with hydraulic hoses and cables positioned so as not to obscure the operator’s vision. Simplex and triplex masts are available on the 8-ton model, with simplex masts being provided for all other models. The Overhead Guard combines maximum protection for the operator with clear all-round vision through the angled roof bars, especially when working at height.

Comprehensive operational safety features include: PRESENCE DETECTION SYSTEM (PDS) protects operator, pedestrians and loads by disengaging drive and hydraulic functions when the operator leaves the normal seated operating position SEATBELT BUZZER sounds when driver returns to operating position, as a reminder to fasten seatbelt THE ANTI-RESTART CONTACT SWITCH prevents damage to starter motor and engine in case operator restarts engine when already running BACK-UP BUZZER warns when truck is reversing PARKING BRAKE ALARM sounds if parking brake has not been applied MAST-MOUNTED FLOODLIGHTS increase safety and productivity in dimly lit areas.

THE OPERATOR’S COMPARTMENT is designed to surround the driver in comfort and safety with all controls and pedals positioned to facilitate stress-free operation. On-off access is smooth and easy from both sides, using the three-point entry system, consisting of open, wide, non-slip side-steps and hand-grips on the compartment and seat. A FULL SUSPENSION SEAT incorporating forward–backward, weight adjustments, bolster support, hip restraint and seat belt. Also includes a seat switch for operator ‘presence detection’ and seatbelt buzzer if not worn.

FINGERTIP HYDRAULIC CONTROLS mounted on an adjustable armrest, allow the operator to control hydraulics precisely and with minimum effort.

FILTER SCREEN on the cabin models, provides a dust-free enviroment for the operator.

AUTOMOTIVE-STYLE PEDALS are positioned to reduce fatigue. Separate brake and inching pedals facilitate excellent ramp restarting and transmission engagement.


POWER-ASSISTED STEERING makes maneuvring the truck light and easy. While the steering wheel itself is tiltable and can be adjusted to suit individual preference.


All main components within the fully integrated power train – engine, transmission and front axle – have been designed for an excellent match and superior functionality. In addition, the engine and transmission are floatingmounted within the chassis structure for exceptional operator comfort, thanks to ultra-low engine noise plus minimal vibrations and shock.

Powerful and fuel-efficient diesel engines Complying with the latest exhaust emission standards and EURO level IIIA regulations (as amended by 2004/26/EC), the 4-stroke, 6-cylinder direct injection 6M60-TL diesel engine used in the 8-16 tonne models uses high-pressure common rail technology plus electronic-controlled injection, turbo charger and intercooler to deliver excellent torque, minimal noise, low vibration and high levels of emission control. The positive crankcase ventilation system separates oil damp from blow-by gasses thus reducing exhaust emissions.

High output and torque at low rpms ensures excellent performance and engine longevity. In addition, ‘low’ high-idle speed ensures less noise and engine wear.

radiator which provides excellent heat transfer. The radiator cooling fan passes air efficiently through the radiator with low surrounding noise levels.

Auto-Shift Transmission Fully automatic 3-speed transmission transmits power from engine to front axle and auxiliary systems, whilst a torque converter ensures smooth control at all times. The transmission uses constant mesh gears connected to the shafts via 5 oil-cooled clutch packs. Automatic gear selection reduces operational costs – and the on/off inching system ensures improved functionality and reduced maintenance.

Braking system The standard hydraulic drum braking system, with pneumatic assistance on the 8 to 15 tonne models, provides safe and effective stopping power. Drums and brake shoes are protected by plates that shield them from dirt and debris, reducing maintenance and maintaining performance. Powerful oil cooled discs brakes, available as standard on the 16.0 tonne model and as an option on other models, provide excellent stopping performance, even in the toughest applications.

Reduced noise levels Thanks to improved design and manufacture, noise levels have been drastically reduced to make operation more comfortable, ensuring better productivity over longer working shifts. Cooling system The high pressure cooling system circulates coolant efficiently around the engine block, cyclinder head and through the aluminium core

Steering system The hydrostatic steering system gives the operator full ‘lock-to-lock’ turning capabilities at very low speeds and even while stationary. The rear axle is a sandwich type fabrication giving maximum durability and is connected to the chassis via a bushing arrangement which allows it to pivot through 4 degrees. This gives excellent maneuverability on rough surfaces and uneven yards.





EASY SERVICE ACCESS The DP80-160N range has been designed for easy daily checks and servicing, thanks to a unique range of on-board servicing and protection features.

EASY DAILY CHECKS (above) of the coolant, engine oil, transmission oil, hydraulic oil and brake oil levels can be monitored via conveniently located sight gauges, that require no special tools nor tilting of the operator compartment. RAPID TROUBLESHOOTING of electrical components is achieved via on-board diagnostics with CAN bus – and the Truck Fault History feature stores up to 32 fault codes.
