Decades of innovation in the lift truck industry have given us a new line of powerful Class I electric counterbalance riders.  Cat® Class I Electric Riders are capable of handling similar loads to comparable IC fuel-powered trucks, although this wasn’t always the case. Innovative technology brings the capability of these trucks above and beyond the performance of other warehouse equipment.

New Cat® electric forklifts are designed for just about every application possible. Cat’s® line of electric riders are dependable workhorses that are perfectly suited for wide array of tasks. From indoor warehouse application uses to the heavy lifting in the harshest working environments where you normally find IC engine machines. The models are available in five environmentally friendly models with lifting capacity ranging between 2,000 - 11,000 lbs.  

These latest pieces of equipment utilize innovative technology that save energy, increase productivity, while keeping your work environment clean and efficient. And as with all Cat Lift Truck products, they are built to last.

The Benefits Behind Electric Forklifts

When it comes to moving around an indoor facility, the last thing you want is harmful exhaust polluting the air around you during your work day. But, clean air isn’t the only benefit of electric forklifts:

Battery Powered

Electric forklifts are powered by batteries - not only does this make them environmentally friendly, but they also run extremely quietly.

Each truck is equipped with advanced green AC power. This gives each truck the ability to perform greater overall, run for longer stretches, and require less maintenance.

Improve Workplace Environment

Since you won’t be using fuel, electric forklifts are great for maneuvering around indoors as they have little effect on the indoor environment. This improves the overall quality of the workplace - from employees health to limiting disrupting noises and possible product contamination from exhaust, everyone will feel more comfortable while they work.


Each forklift is designed to handle a variety of load types and capacities: - Cat® forklifts have you covered.

In fact, Cat® electric riders are easy to operate in warehouse aisles, loading docks, and even in a trailers. No matter the environment, Cat® Class I Electric Riders maneuver incredibly easily with smooth steering and operation.

A Design Built to Last


Built to have superior operator comfort in the most ergonomical way - electric forklifts are comfortable to operate for extended periods of time. It’s important, too, because with the design and technology of these trucks – their built to last.

Thermal Protection

Built with thermal protection, the truck will monitor its temperature continually to optimize its performance.


Each electric forklift is designed to have simplified maintenance with no fuel, self-diagnostics, on-the-go monitoring, and high energy efficiency.


These trucks have the ability to self-diagnose, helping to prevent any major maintenance issues - saving you time and money while also increasing the productivity of your work facility.

Service Reminder

Last, but certainly not least, the service reminder on the Class I Electric Riders can be customized to alert the operator at an optimal time for warehouse productivity.
