HOUSTON – Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), the provider of Jungheinrich lift trucks and narrow-aisle products in the United States, Canada and Mexico, has a its new electric stand-up counterbalanced lift truck, the ETG 214-318 series.

Customizable tilt speeds at all heights help prevent damage to the load or drop down. Three pre-programmed performance modes allow the ability to customize individual drive and hydraulic settings based on the application or operator experience level, either through the display, laptop or a handheld device.

Electric power steering allows the operator to easily maneuver the lift truck, especially in tight aisles or congested spaces. The intuitive multi-functional control handle allows operators to work three functions simultaneously for greater productivity.
