Contest to Award Prizes for Oldest Lift Truck

HOUSTON—Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks is on a quest to find the oldest Mitsubishi lift truck still operating.

Contestants can enter the company’s “Keeps on Running” contest by submitting online applications and photos of the small, internal combustion (IC), cushion-tire Mitsubishi lift truck (capacity must range from 2,000 pounds to 6,500 pounds) they currently own and operate. Eligible models include the entire FGC10-FGC33 model lineup, the current ‘N’ generation and all of its predecessors, according to the lift truck manufacturer.

Prizes will be awarded to 20 applicants. The grand-prize winner will receive a new FGC15N-FGC33N Mitsubishi lift truck. Runners up will be chosen at random from all contestants and will receive complimentary planned maintenance (PM) service for up to one year.

Entries will be accepted through Nov. 30. Winners will be notified in December and awarded in January 2009. To enter or see complete rules and details, visit the contest Web site at
