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 added a 2,600-lb. capacity model to its EKX Man-Up Turret Truck forklift series.

Similar to the current Jungheinrich EKX 410 / 2,200 lb. capacity model, the new EKX 412 offers the same great innovative features and benefits but with even more flexibility to move heavier goods.

Efficiency and productivity, combined with advanced AC motor technology and exclusive Jungheinrich vehicle software, optimize performance while minimizing energy consumption. Operators will find that this truck can run up to two shifts on a single battery charge in most applications for more pallet moves per hour.

Designed with the operator in mind, the EKX 410-412 offers premium ergonomic features that provide excellent comfort throughout the shift. These include a spacious operator compartment with extensive leg room, large knee rests and a full-suspension seat with adjustable arm rest.

Additionally, this machine offers sitting or standing operation with foldable seat, electrically adjustable control panel (height and tilt), intuitive operator controls with easy, thumb-activated drive and hydraulic controls, electronic power steering, soft keys and a large LCD full-color display.

Jungheinrich’s AC technology – now in its fourth, fifth, and soon, sixth generation – is setting new industry standards while offering engineering reliability and technological advances as standard hallmarks of the Jungheinrich brand.
