Buying foreign used Caterpillar GP35NT Empty Container forklift truck from a local car bond in Uganda


In case you choose to buy a foreign used Caterpillar GP35NT Empty Container forklift truck from a car bond makes life a lot easier to acquire yourself a vehicle.

However, the cost of the CIF can change due to year of manufacture, condition of the car, mileage and the dealer. Now the Caterpillar GP35NT Empty Container forklift truck is more expensive as compared to most the cars we have discussed. In general, the Caterpillar GP35NT Empty Container forklift truck can cost you around UGX 60,000,000 or even more for a premium class.

General Caterpillar GP35NT Empty Container forklift truck in Uganda


Power
Although quite an old model, the 2006 version of the Cat GP35NT was still able to meet the demands of our material handling applications. Technically, what powers it is a Nissan in-line 4 cylinder engine that gets its energy from an LPG-type fuel. This, along with the hydrostatic transmission, enables it to achieve excellent driving performance and outstanding traction even on slippery surfaces and slopes.

Performance
This Cat GP35NT has indeed exceeded our expectations. Upon testing, It was truly impressing due to its powertrain layout since it was helpful in lowering the equipment’s centre of gravity. This then resulted in better truck stability and increased residual lifting capacity. Additionally, I was also in awe by its engine performance. The powerful Nissan motor was able to deliver lower emission and noise levels and a better fuel consumption.

Aside from that, the truck’s back tilt angle is another aspect that caught my eye as well. Particularly, this feature reduced the risks of loose materials sliding off the forks.

Overall design
Like what I’ve mentioned earlier, Cat Lift Trucks are suitable for areas that require safety and efficiency. And the GP35NT is no exception. The moment I hopped behind its wheels, I was then truly impressed by its ergonomic cabin. In it is an adjustable steering column for that comfortable driving and operation. It brings a double action park brake as well, which helps drivers to avoid unsafe situations.

Also standard in this forklift is a full suspension vinyl seat, a side shift and fork positioners, and a 3-stage container mast that can lift 3.5 tonne of loads to up to 3300mm high.

Optional accessories
The good news is, there’s more to this Caterpillar machine than just superb power and performance. Alongside the standard features that go along with it, you can opt for some optional accessories, too. These include solid pneumatic tyres, integrated and hook-on side shifter, and pneumatic dual drive tyres. You can also request for an indicator for the air filter, coolant levels, and brake fluid, a dust proof kit.
