HOUSTON, Texas—Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc (MCFA), the provider of Jungheinrich lift trucks and narrow aisle products in the United States, Canada and Mexico, has introduced the new 3,000 – 3,500-lb capacity Jungheinrich EKX 514/516K/516 man-up turret trucks to its North American product line.

The new turret trucks have lift heights up to 689 inches and can efficiently run up to two shifts on a single battery charge.

“This new Jungheinrich EKX series of turret trucks is equipped with state-of-the-art control technology, advanced AC motor technology and an efficient energy management system,” said Chad Munger, product line manager at MCFA. “Utilizing energy reclamation, this turret truck series efficiently operates up to two shifts on a single battery charge for an up to 25 percent increase in productivity.”

The new motor technology converts around 93 percent of the energy consumed into actual output, cutting energy losses by half, resulting in an up to 15 percent reduction in energy consumption compared to the previous generation.

New Jungheinrich products are supported by a one-year / 2,000-hour warranty that includes parts and labour, as well as components and systems, and a two-year / 4,000-hour extended Powertrain warranty.

Jungheinrich products are also backed by the Parts Fast or Parts Free Guarantee that ensures—for customers in Canada and Mexico—the shipping of parts within 24 hours from the time the order was placed.
