Latest John Deere Final Tier 4 engine technology for Combilift

Published on: 08/06/2018

Combilift handed its 30,000th unit sold – the first C14,000 multi-directional forklift to be powered by a John Deere Final Tier 4/Stage IV engine - to steel production giant Haslinger Stahlbau at CeMAT 2017.


Established in 1998, Combilift has grown to become the acknowledged global leader in the long-load handling market. The Combilift concept combines a forklift and a sideloader, together in one manoeuvrable, multi-directional and cost-effective machine.

Haslinger’s new C14,000 will work alongside a range of Combilift equipment at the company’s European sites. Boasting a lifting capacity of 14,000 kilograms (30,000 pounds) and a sturdy construction, the C14,000 was built to handle long and heavy loads such as steel, concrete, prefab timber frames, or machine components. The versatile unit can perform all the warehouse material handling tasks of a counterbalance forklift, an aisle truck, and a side loader, inside the warehouse and outside in the yard.


The C14,000 delivered to Haslinger was the first to be fitted with a 4.5L Final Tier 4/Stage IV engine, instead of the previous Tier 3/Stage III A model. “We use John Deere engines in all our larger-capacity diesel-powered models, but this was our first trial with the new technology,” commented Martin McVicar, Managing Director of Combilift. “E.P. Barrus was a great help,” Martin continued. They suggested a 4.5L engine and identified the most suitable cooling radiator. The very essence of the multi-directional concept is to enhance warehouse efficiency, so we were keen to keep machine design as small as possible. Barrus also advised us to position the SCR (selective catalytic reduction) unit away from the engine so we could fit the entire package in a tighter envelope.”

With over 30, C14,000 units sold to companies worldwide in 2017, including OEM’s such as Liebherr Group and John Deere, Combilift’s order book includes another 12, all with 4.5L engines.
