Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc (MCFA), the provider of Jungheinrich lift trucks and narrow-aisle products, has introduced the new Jungheinrich ETV 318-325 and ETM 325 Series of sit-down moving mast reach trucks.
Providing increased maximum lift heights, improved operator comfort, and Jungheinrich’s fourth generation AC technology, the ETV/ETM 3 series of reach trucks is ideal for both narrow aisle and high-rack applications that require rapid maneuverability in confined work areas.
ETV 318-325 and ETM 325 models, ranging from 3,900- to 5,500-lb capacities, also come with these features:
•High performance—Increased maximum lift heights (up to 42 feet) and higher-rated capacities (more than 21 feet) allow operators to perform efficiently in more difficult high-rack applications. The Curve Control feature provides automatic speed reduction during cornering.
•Energy efficiency—Equipped with fourth generation AC technology for drive, lift, and steering motors, the reach truck has the ability to operate up to two shifts on one battery charge in many applications. The ETV/ETM 3 Series reach trucks consume 10% less energy than the previous generation, with a 10% increase in performance over the previous generation. Optional regenerative lowering also can provide longer run times on a single battery charge.
•Enhanced operator comfort—The new moving mast reach truck series has a spacious operator compartment and wider armrest. A well-designed steering wheel helps ensure that the steer knob is always in the most ergonomic position for greater operator comfort and less fatigue.
•Improved operator visibility—The new mast design and narrow roof supply enhanced visibility through and around the mast. These reach trucks are designed with a wide visual range forward window for an excellent view of the forks and load. The reach truck can also be equipped with options such as a panorama roof pane, spotlight, and video camera.
•Additional productivity—The ETV 320 and ETV 325 models can be equipped with optional packages to help improve operator productivity and efficiency. These include:
—Efficiency Package—Provides the longest possible operating time with a single battery charge.
—Drive Plus Package—Appropriate for applications that require materials to be transported over longer distances.
—Lift Plus Package—Designed to increase performance in applications that require high lift heights.
