Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), the provider of Jungheinrich lift trucks and narrow-aisle products, has introduced a 7,000 lb. model capacity to its Jungheinrich large electric pneumatic tire lift truck series. This series is equipped with the newest generation of 3-phase AC technology, resulting in increased productivity and the ability to run up to two shifts on a single battery charge in most applications. Additionally, these forklifts feature a maintenance-free braking system that uses regeneration, which turns momentum into energy and feeds it back into the battery.
The series also features a range of components for increased control, including responsive acceleration and braking. Other key features include Jungheinrich Curve Control, which enhances operator control by automatically reducing the driving speed when the operator is turning corners.
