Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks has introduced VELIA ES – a six-model series of ultra-modern low level order pickers developed for maximum versatility.
Building on the award-winning ergonomic design of its OPB20NE, the new VELIA ES 1.0 to 2.0 tonne trucks are available with a choice of load sections, including cantilever and scissor lift, which allow for loads to be lifted to an ergonomic height of 800 mm, to avoid strain for the operator.
In addition, the new series includes three rising platform models which lift the operator to a height of 2.5 metres for safe second level picking.
Developed for speed and manoeuvrability, the new order pickers incorporate a number of key developments that boost performance of truck and operator alike. The result is a large productivity advantage over competitors.
For precise control, VELIA features highly sophisticated electronics. The programmable controller allows adjustment of acceleration, speed and braking settings to match perfectly with the needs of different operators and applications. Users also benefit from an advanced electric steering system which offers automatic speed reduction in curves and automatic drive wheel centring to ensure operations are safe and productive at all times.
Special attention has been given to optimising operator movement. The truck’s spacious operator area features the market’s biggest ever platform. For easy on/off access from both sides, the uncluttered walk-through cabin has a low step height of just 105 mm and chamfered platform edges. The entire floor mat acts as a floor sensor, allowing the truck to move as soon as the operator is in place, to minimise delays.
Each of the six models features the ergonomically designed Maxius steering wheel, which brings all operating controls within easy reach of both hands. Comfortable and responsive, it can be operated using one hand and can be adjusted to each operator’s ideal position.
The order pickers’ state-of-the-art features are complemented by a sleek, ultra-modern exterior. Their unique LED lighting design, offering see-and-be-seen safety, also acts as a turn indicator.
The low-maintenance design includes RapidAccess features for quick and easy entry to all areas for checks and maintenance.
