Mitsubishi launches high-spec 2-3 tonne LPG cushion tyre forklift.
Question: What do you get if you combine the power and flexibility of a state-of-the art LPG engine with a feature-packed specification and all the added advantages of cushion tyres? Answer: the new FGC N series of 2.0 to 3.0 tonne counterbalance models from Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks. And the result for truck users is an unbeatable blend of performance, economy, ergonomics and safety.
Clear all-round vision, essential to safe and precise operation, is made possible through the high-visibility mast, fork carriage and head guard. In fact, inbuilt safety features can be seen throughout the truck's design. They include, as standard, a seat switch that prevents all movement of the forks and the truck if the driver is not securely seated, as well as warning indicators to encourage proper use of the seatbelt and parking brake.
Thanks to a sophisticated engine management system and regulated catalytic converter, high output is delivered along with low emissions and low fuel consumption. Noise levels have also been lowered – adding to the operator's level of comfort. For the operating company, the long service interval – 500 hours – will bring welcome reductions in maintenance costs and downtime.
Benefits gained by using cushion tyres include excellent traction on smooth surfaces, low rolling resistance, reduced energy consumption, better stability and greater residual capacities at high lifts. They also minimise truck dimensions, for greater manoeuvrability in tight spaces.
In addition to its generous standard configuration, the FGC20-30N is offered with options such as an integral side shifter, extra working lights, revolving lamps, a high-exit exhaust and dual front wheels.
“And as you would expect from any Mitsubishi forklift truck,” adds Terry Foreman, General Manager of Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks UK, “the high specifications and performance of the new models are matched with competitive prices, low running costs and utter dependability… to deliver outstanding value for money.”
