7,000 – 8,000 Lb. Capacity Internal Combustion Cushion-Tire CAT® Lift Trucks

2C7000 – 2C8000 LP cushion-tire model series CAT Lift Trucks from G&W deliver high levels of torque and horsepower, while saving on fuel costs.

Fuel Efficiency

CAT fuel-efficient internal combustion engines provide the power you need, and G&W provides expert advice and service to go with it.

K25 Internal Combustion Engine

This powerful engine provides high levels of horsepower, while maintaining compliance with all CARB and EPA emissions regulations. 

Electronic Fuel Injection System

Consisting of three control modules, constantly communicating with each other through its CAN (Controlled Area Network) system, the combustion process of these CAT forklifts provides high levels of torque at lower RPM levels, saving in fuel consumption. 

Fuel Saver Mode

A standard feature of the CAT Lift Truck, easily activated by a toggle switch on the dashboard, the fuel saver mode reduces fuel costs without sacrificing top travel speeds. 


CAT forklifts are known for reliability, and with G&W service to back you up, you’ll maximize efficiency. 


The on-board display includes standard warnings and icons and provides immediate truck status to help streamline troubleshooting. When you do need service, G&W offers the convenience of factory-trained mobile technicians.

Effective Cooling System

The 10-blade fan, aluminum radiator and bottom bypass air flow design of these CAT forklifts improve air flow. The electronic engine protection and warning system monitor radiator fluid and temperature of transmission oil, helping prolong engine life. 

Parking Brake Transmission Interlock

With the parking brake engaged, the forklift is held in neutral to protect the brakes and transmission, reducing the chance for premature brake wear. 


Easy to maneuver, CAT heavy-duty forklifts help increase productivity, even in compact spaces. 

Compact Chassis

The compact chassis allows the forklift operator to efficiently maneuver in, out and around tight spaces. 

Fully Hydrostatic Power Steering
