Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc (MCFA), the provider of Jungheinrich lift trucks and narrow-aisle products in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, has introduced the new Jungheinrich EFG 540k-EFG S50 series of electric pneumatic tire forklifts.
Featuring advanced technology for increased efficiency and productivity, the 8,000- to 11,000-lb-capacity forklift series offers operators the ability to work up to two shifts on one battery charge in most applications.
Increased efficiency, improved ergonomics, and several model selections are among the key features of the Jungheinrich EFG 540k-EFG S50 series.
•Increased efficiency—The EFG 540k-EFG S50 series improves efficiency up to 20% over the previous model series. Power consumption is minimized through the continued advances in Jungheinrich’s AC electronic control system and strategic placement of key components within the lift truck’s chassis. The EFG 540k-EFG S50 series also raises the bar in performance and energy efficiency by achieving the most pallet movement cycles using the least amount of energy. This energy efficiency is demonstrated by the EFG model running up to two shifts on a single battery charge in most applications.
•Improved ergonomics—The EFG 540k-EFG S50 series features a refined and spacious operator compartment with three-way adjustable Grammer full-suspension seat, long right-side convenience tray with clipboard and cup holders, and a Solo-Pilot hydraulic lever control. For added flexibility, users can also equip the forklift with an optional Multi-Pilot (unitized) hydraulic lever control.
•Expanded model range—The EFG 540k-EFG S50 series provides the flexibility of seven models within the 8,000- to 11,000-lb-capacity range, including compact models offering equivalent capacities. A variety of options include closed cabins, electronic power steering, keypad access, cold storage prep, and dual pneumatic tires.
•Flexible use—This new series features an extended battery life and the ability to effectively operate in a range of indoor and outdoor applications. Businesses seeking to reduce overall fuel costs or emissions will also benefit from this new series of electric forklifts.
