Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), Houston, Texas, introduced the new 3,000-pound capacity Jungheinrich EKS 314 order picker to its North American product line. This new energy-efficient model can run up to 16 operating hours on one battery charge.

The new model can reach order-picking heights of up to 366 inches and is specifically designed for high-pick-rate and high-density storage applications. The EKS 314 boasts top travel and hydraulic lift speeds in addition to extended 1,000-hour service intervals.

Other benefits include:

  • Advanced proprietary 3-phase AC technology, which ensures strong acceleration, high lifting and lowering speeds, lower energy consumption and longer run times.
  • Stable control handle base, which allows operators to grip it securely during travel, yet retain precise control of travel and lifting functions.
  • Fold-up monitored side gates are nested and out of the way when in the upright position, giving the operator maximum access when picking products.
  • Stable operator platform includes an ultra-comfort cushioned floor to help isolate the operator’s feet and legs during order picking and driving. Removable storage bins allow operators to store their items and charge accessories while working.
  • Sealed components add protection in dusty or moist environments.
  • Full-color interactive display panel shows key performance indicators and truck status information in an easy-to-read manner.
