Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc., Houston, Texas, introduced the new Jungheinrich EFG 540k-S50 series of electric pneumatic tire forklifts. Featuring Juengerich automatic forkliftadvanced technology for increased efficiency and productivity, the 8,000- to 11,000-pound capacity forklift series offers operators the ability to work up to two shifts on one battery charge in most applications.

The EFG 540k-EFG S50 series boasts improved efficiency of up to 20% over previous model series. Power consumption is minimized through the continued advances in Jungheinrich’s exclusive AC electronic control system and strategic placement of key components within the lift truck’s chassis.

The EFG 540k-EFG S50 series also features a refined and spacious operator compartment with 3-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, customers can also equip the forklift with an optional MULTI-PILOT (unitized) hydraulic lever control. Operators also have optional closed cabins, electronic power steering, keypad access, cold storage prep and dual pneumatic tires.
