HOUSTON (August 16, 2016) – Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), the provider of Jungheinrich® lift trucks and narrow aisle products in the United States, Canada and Mexico, today introduced two new series of Jungheinrich fork-over stackers and sit-on low lift pallet trucks to its North American product line. Both warehouse products feature advanced AC technology to boost customers’ operating times and a wide-range of productivity-enhancing features to drive greater warehouse efficiency.
“The new Jungheinrich ERC 214/216 fork-over stackers and ESE 220/320 sit-on low lift pallet trucks are built with advanced technology, industry-leading ergonomics and operator-focused designs to help customers increase the day-to-day productivity in their business,” said Chad Munger, product line manager at MCFA. “We’re excited to offer these new series of warehouse products to our North American customers.”
Key benefits of the Jungheinrich ERC 214/216 fork-over stackers include:
Enhanced Maneuverability – The ERC 214/216 series combines the functionality of a pedestrian stacker with the option to work comfortably on a ride-on stacker. The powerful 3-phase AC drive motor allows for longer run times, allowing operators to efficiently transport goods over long distances and move more product in less time.
Versatile Operation – There are three different configurations available for the ERC 214/216 fork-over stackers, allowing customers to customize the lift truck for their business. The stand-on platform can be equipped with or without side arms. Optional DrivePlus speed can be added to models with side arms. Models configured with the optional DrivePlus speed feature can reach travel speeds up to 5.6 mph.
Ergonomic Design – The shock-absorbing, stand-on platform provides operators with a quiet and smooth ride for greater comfort, while electric steering helps reduce operator fatigue. These fork-over stackers are also built with a durable 8 mm steel chassis that helps reduce the risk of physical damage to the equipment.
Key benefits of the ESE 220/320 sit-on low-lift pallet trucks include:
Advanced Technology – The Curve Control speed reduction system helps lessen the chance of harming the operator, truck and load when cornering. Jungheinrich 3-phase AC technology allows for higher performance - making these pallet trucks ideal for loading and unloading trailers and for load transportation over longer distances. The forklift’s system is designed for excellent energy management, resulting in lower overall operating costs.
Innovative Design – The lift truck’s sit-down chassis provides enhanced operator comfort when transporting goods over medium to long distances, and the side-to-side travel position helps improve the operator’s visibility to pedestrians and other warehouse traffic. The central position of the operator compartment and the intuitive joystick with easily accessible drive and lift controls provide a comfortable operating experience for the driver.
Improved Ergonomics – The adjustable foot well height helps provide a comfortable operating position for operators of varying sizes. A padded armrest and padded knee area offer additional comfort to the operator while seated. Electric steering requires less effort and helps reduce operator fatigue, especially when working long shifts.
