Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America (MCFA) introduced its new series of Mitsubishi 3,000 - 4,000 lb. capacity electric cushion tire forklifts. Designed for optimal comfort, the FBC15N-FBC18LN series is equipped with a two-stage hydraulic system, reducing energy consumption and providing longer run times.

Key features include a spacious operator compartment, efficiency and reliability, ease of service, and an Integrated Presence System (IPS).

The FBC15N-FBC18LN models’ narrow steering wheel column design and ergonomic hydraulic levers provide extra space and comfort.

The design of these models allows the forklift to run longer on one battery charge. The 3-phase AC technology and regenerative braking features enable operators to do the job effectively without sacrificing performance.

The FBC series electric forklift features controllers to remove panels that allows easier maintenance. The planned maintenance program makes it simple to evaluate and develop a maintenance schedule.

The IPS is an integrated, computer-based feedback system helps keep operators aware of potentially hazardous situations using audible and visual indicators.
