Mitsubishi moving to house-built masts

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas Group, the manufacturer of UniCarriers Forklifts across North, Central and South America, has introduced new Quad Mast options for its PD, BXC, Platinum II Cushion and Nomad Series.

This new offering will replace current third party supplied two-ton Quad Masts with masts that will be designed, fabricated and assembled in-house.

UniCarriers Forklifts Quad Mast is a four-stage mast that provides the highest reach due to its four sets of moving rails. These are designed for very high stacking in specialized warehousing and other industries.

The new offering of Quad Masts on most popular trucks fills a gap for customers looking for higher lift capacities and provides customers with significant benefits including price competitiveness while maintaining the same capacity retention.

With the new Quad Masts manufactured in-house, Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas will have more flexibility to meet customer’s unique requirements. Updated spec sheets and revised mast and capacity tables are currently available on the UniCarriers Forklifts Dealer Portal for the affected models: 

  • PFD40M-PFD70M – The PD Series, available in 4,000-7,000 lb. capacities, is powered by an advanced diesel engine that utilizes a high-pressure common rail fuel injection system, cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and a Diesel Oxication Catalyst (DOC).
  • BXC30N-BXC80N – An electric counterbalanced forklift series that combines a capacity of up to 8,000 lbs. and exceptional power efficiency.
  • AF30-AF50 – The LP/dual fuel Nomad, with 3,000-5,000 lb. capacity, is the most unique vehicle of its kind and is ideally suited where both indoor and outdoor forklifts are needed.
  • CF30LP-CF80LP – The Platinum II series of IC forklifts, available in 3,000-8,000 lb. capacities, comes with a reliable cooling design, service reminders and longer maintenance intervals that keep operations up and running by helping maximize uptime, while minimizing cost.

“We are excited to offer UniCarriers Forklifts new Quad Mast options,” said Niels Tolboom, director, North American Sales for UniCarriers Forklifts at Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas. “The new Quad Masts are a testament to our dedication to delivering superior material handling equipment and services.”
