Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), Houston, Texas, introduced the new 7,000-pound model capacity to its Jungheinrich large electric pneumatic tire lift MCFA EFG 5 tire forklifttruck series. Featuring advanced AC technology for increased performance and productivity, this series is equipped with the newest generation of 3-phase AC technology, resulting in increased productivity and the ability to run up to two shifts on a single battery charge in most applications. Additionally, these forklifts feature a maintenance-free braking system that uses re-generation, which turns momentum into energy and feeds it back into the battery.

Featuring a comprehensive range of components for increased control, including responsive acceleration and braking, the EFG 5 series of lift trucks allow for precise positioning. Other key features include Jungheinrich Curve Control, which enhances operator control by automatically reducing the driving speed when the operator is turning corners.

The EFG 535k-S50 series also features a spacious operator compartment for added comfort and a SOLO-PILOT hydraulic lever control for easier operation. The overhead guard design allows for optimized operator visibility, helping to reduce the risk of damage during operation.
