Mitsubishi Forklift trucks have announced the introduction of their new forklift, the FB16PNT-FB20PNT series of 3-wheel forklifts.
Chad Pauler, product line manager for Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks, commented on the new forklift series, “We’re excited to offer this new series of electric 3-wheel forklifts. These compact forklifts are key products in the Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks lineup, providing our customers with a product that maximizes operator comfort and efficiency, and features a durable design that allows it to perform well even in harsh environments.”
The great thing about these forklifts is the compact design, which makes it ideal in environments where there is not a lot of space, including in crowded areas or work spaces. This might particularly benefit those working in a warehouse, where narrow aisles and stock can be difficult to maneuverer.
Not only this, but the forklifts have an improved performance due to their wet disc brakes that allows them to function well in corrosive environments. This makes them ideal in outside conditions. The forklift has improved maneuverability, due to its electric power steering. This allows the machine to be operated comfortably and easily.
Other features of the forklift include the heavy-duty alternating current (AC) drive and hydraulic motors, which provide the forklift with excellent performance, the Controlled Cornering Speed feature, which means the speed of the forklift can be well controlled, and also the pneumatic tires which grip to the ground firmly.
The operator can work this forklift in comfort from the ergonomic compartment, which is fully kitted out to allow the operator to work through their entire shift with ease. Their seat has full suspension and the unit even has a Cold Storage Modification for times when the machine is working in freezer or chilled settings.
The forklift also benefits from side shifters which allow the unit to have an increased productivity in dock to stock environments.
The forklift is expected to be a popular unit which many different companies and applications would benefit from. One customer commented, “The new forklift is a great addition to my collection of machines. Working on various construction sites, I need robust units that work well under pressure. I decided to buy a new forklift as I had a old model that I had took to the forklift repair garage one too many times recently. These three wheeled forklifts will work well in the compact environments that I often struggle to work in.”
