Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks end-riders
HOUSTON (September 3, 2014) – Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks, manufacturer of reliable and affordable forklift trucks for hardworking applications, today introduced the new series of 10,000 – 15,000 kg. capacity diesel pneumatic tire forklift trucks for Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The FD100NM – FD150NM series features a powerful 6D16 7.5L engine that delivers exceptional performance and a newly-designed operator compartment, allowing operators to work comfortably and efficiently.
“This series of large pneumatic tire forklifts are designed to handle heavy-duty applications such as lumber, steel, pipe, concrete and fabricated metals” said Lucas Dumdie, product line manager at Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks. “The addition of the FD100NM – FD150NM series to the Mitsubishi forklift truck product line-up allows us to be more flexible with customers looking for large-capacity forklifts that help reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity.”

The FD100NM – FD150NM series provides customers with several features and benefits, including:

• Productivity-Enhancing Engine. This series is equipped with a 6D16 7.5L turbo, in-line six-cylinder diesel engine with a turbocharger. The powerful engine increases operator productivity by consistently delivering a high performance – even when the forklift truck is operating in outdoor applications where there are extreme weather conditions and rough and uneven surfaces.

• High-Performance Transmission. These FD100NM-FD150NM models often operate on rugged terrain, making the powerful transmission a key component for better performance and increased efficiency. The forklift’s drivetrain is equipped with an automatic transmission that converts the power of the engine into torque, resulting in controlled, rapid response and amplified acceleration.

• Excellent Operator Comfort. Operators can comfortably handle and maneuver heavy loads, up to 15,000 kg., while easily maintaining control of the forklift. A full-suspension seat, built for operators of various sizes, and a three-section hydraulic control valve with seat side levers help reduce stress and fatigue during long shifts. Additionally, rubber mounted components, helical transmission gears, closed wheel wells and a fully-insulated engine hood help reduce the loud noise and vibration commonly associated with operating large forklift trucks.

• Reduced Downtime. These forklifts require less downtime and reduced preventative maintenance as a result of the easy-to-access engine and 500-hour service intervals. The Mitsubishi forklift truck dealer network is manned with trained and qualified technicians, who are capable of thoroughly servicing the forklift truck.
