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, today introduced the new 5,500-pound capacity Jungheinrich ERE 125 / 225 / 225DP pallet truck to its North American product line.
A tool designed for loading and unloading trailers, the electric-powered pallet truck combines the maneuverability and comfort of a stand-on forklift with the compact design of a walkie-end rider.
“The new Jungheinrich ERE series can be individually adapted and customized to specific applications with the goal of moving goods faster and more efficiently,” said Chad Munger, product line manager at MCFA.
“One of the pallet truck’s unique features is positionCONTROL, an optional automated function that helps increase productivity by allowing the operator – with a touch of a button – to raise the forks to a preset height, thereby optimizing lift time and minimizing adjustments.”
Unique benefits of the ERE 125 / 225 / 225DP electric-powered pallet truck include:
- Four available stand-on platforms – These optional platforms include a foldable platform with restraint system for application use in pedestrian mode; a fixed, compact platform with firm side walls; a fixed, elongated platform that is ergonomically designed for safety and comfort; and an order-picking platform with side entry for left- and right-handed operators.
- Ergonomic operator compartment – The operator compartment provides ergonomic and fatigue-free operation of the lift truck over the entire shift. With increased control of the pallet truck, operators can maintain a side-stance position and hold themselves steady with one hand on the tiller and the other on the fixed platform handle.
- Powerful three-phase AC drive motor and “intelligent” electronic controller – Progressive drive technology and control electronics (speedCONTROL) provide productive and energy-efficient operation with adjustments to fit most applications.
- Options to fit specific application needs – To meet the specific needs of applications, customers can choose from a variety of options, including side battery extraction for multishift applications and a newly developed, height-adjustable smartPILOT electric tiller head that features color-coded buttons with abrasion-resistant symbols for intuitive or tactile operation.
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. For customers in Canada and Mexico, the guarantee ensures shipping of parts within 24 hours of the time the order was placed.
