Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), Houston, Texas, introduced the Jungheinrich ETR 230-235 series of pantograph reach trucks. The new 3,000-to 3,500-pound capacity models are single reach models that feature advanced AC technology and a modern design for high performance, energy efficiency and ergonomic operator comfort.

The Jungheinrich ETR series combines on-board electric controllers, AC electrical motor technology and an exclusive servicing software system that optimizes power and performance while minimizing energy consumption. These reach trucks also feature a hydraulic system that delivers what is said to be some of the fastest and most controlled lift speeds in the industry.

Additionally, these new 36-volt pantograph reach trucks boast improved efficiency through the exclusive AC electric control system and usage of proprietary drive and lift motors. This allows the reach truck to run for up to two shifts on a single battery charge in most applications.

The spacious and cushioned operator compartment combines increased comfort and functionality. The reach truck’s exclusive intuitive control handle incorporates all operator functions in one grip. And, additional features, like electric power steering, make positioning the reach truck in narrow aisles easier, while reducing operator fatigue and improved accuracy when handling and transporting loads throughout the warehouse.

The new color operator display panel features a battery discharge indicator, drive wheel 360-degree travel direction, programmable performance levels and other information. And, the tilting mast is hinged where the mast meets the top surface of the chassis. When the reach truck is in the transportation configuration, the mast tilts toward the rear of the unit itself and secures with braces, thus enabling the unit to be loaded into various enclosed van trailers or ocean containers in an upright, wheels-on-the-floor position.
