Mitsubishi’s new electric forktruck series range in capacity from 4,500 to 6,500 pounds.

HOUSTONMitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), the provider of Mitsubishi forklift trucks across North, Central and South America, has introduced new 4,500 – 6,500 lb. capacity electric cushion tire forklift series.

Offering exceptional run times and an easy-to-service design, the new FBC23N – FBC30LN forklift series is designed with a low cost of ownership, MCFA claims.

“We’re excited to launch our newest Mitsubishi electric cushion tire forklifts series to the market,” said Antonio Serrano, product marketing manager at MCFA.

“Customers are continuing to look for ways to increase productivity and reduce costs, and the new electric cushion tire forklift series is designed to do just that. The forklift’s energy-efficient design allows it to run longer on one battery charge, maximizing uptime throughout the shift for greater productivity. Operators will also appreciate the forklift’s spacious operator compartment and ergonomic features for added comfort throughout the day.” 

With advanced AC motors and optimized regenerative braking systems, the two-stage hydraulic system determines the optimum motor speed, resulting in reduced energy consumption and longer run times.

Design features, such as an easily removable side, top, floor and rear access panels, make accessing the forklift’s motors and major components simple. Additionally, the all-welded box frame and battery edge cover design helps to extend the lifespan. 

The forklift’s compact design also provides a tighter turning radius when loading and unloading trailers or working in cramped conditions.

Operators can easily adjust the seat to their preferences. The low-profile steering wheel provides extra space.

An integrated, computer-based feedback system uses both audible and visual indicators to alert operators to potentially hazardous situations, while increasing overall operator awareness.

The redesigned LED front work lights provide excellent illumination while loading and unloading trailers or in dark areas. 

Flexible productivity options, such as foot directional control, rear grab handle with horn button, sideshifter and overhead guard are also available as options.
