The DP100N2 – DP160N2 class 5 heavy-duty, diesel-powered pneumatic tire forklift series provides optimum power and reliability to tackle some of the most demanding material handling applications.

Built with your business in mind, the Cat® DP100N2-DP160N2 pneumatic tire lift truck series provides optimum power and reliability to tackle the toughest material handling applications. Equipped with the high performance Perkins® 1204E 4.4L engine, this series offers increased fuel efficiency, reduced emissions and a lower overall operating cost.


Perkins® 1204F Diesel Engine – This class 5 forklift series is equipped with a powerful Tier 4 Final  twin-turbo 4.4L four-cylinder diesel engine. This high-performance engine offers 13% more fuel efficiency than the previous generation for greater cost savings.

Maintenance-Free Emissions System – This class 5 forklift meets or exceeds all EPA Tier 4 Final regulations with the help of a maintenance-free Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) aftertreatment system.

Sequential Twin-Turbochargers – The high-efficiency turbochargers are designed to deliver an exceptional boost at a wide RPM range for outstanding engine power and performance. 

Powershift Transmission – Matched with the powerful Tier 4 Final engine, the sturdy transmission delivers excellent torque for some of the most demanding applications. The torque converter is tuned to deliver maximum torque at different loads, and the 3-speed shift in both forward and reverse prevents high engine rev-up, providing a smooth ride and a reduction in fuel consumption for overall cost savings.

LCD/LED Display – Allows your lift truck operator to easily view and monitor all critical systems during operation, helping to minimize unnecessary downtime and helping to reduce costs.
