Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA) has added the new Jungheinrich EJC B14/EJC B16 Heavy-Duty Electric Walkie Straddle Stacker to its North American product line. It features an efficient 3-phase AC technology drive system, proportional lift and lower control, optional electric power steering and a multifunction control tiller head.
Proprietary software, enhanced electrical components and optimized cable routing result in longer battery life and more run time. Further advantages include the elimination of wear items such as motor brushes and springs, which can lead to lower life cycle costs. Advanced regenerative braking allows energy to be fed back into the battery for longer run times and enhanced productivity.
Precise speed and torque control allows for easy maneuvering even in confined warehouse applications. Variable lift/lower speed control lowers pull-down and put-away costs while reducing the likelihood of lift truck, rack or product damage.
All truck movement functions are accomplished via the tiller head, allowing for increased operational efficiencies and decreased operator fatigue. The tiller head is mounted low and toward the side of the truck. This maximizes the space between the operator and the chassis for increased comfort and visibility.
