Heavy duty pallet truck from Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks has launched a heavy duty, fixed platform version of its Premia power pallet trucks.

The 2.5 tonne PBF25N2, which joins the Premia EM series of platform power pallets, is designed to cope with non-stop, intensive use, carrying heavy loads over long distances and at high speeds.

A Formula-1-style Maxius steering wheel with offset positioning allows the operator to have equal forward and reverse vision without placing strain on his neck.

Mike Jones, general manager of Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks UK said: “This truck’s fully integrated fixed platform features an ergonomic new side-stance operating position which reduces operator strain by optimising the excellent forward and rear vision with minimal upper body and neck movement.”

Its vital components are enclosed and protected against water, dirt, damage and wear with extra shielding and protection for the operator.

The truck’s sealed systems include an oil-filled, shock-resistant transmission and a fully floating drive unit, which reduce vibration and provide a smooth, quiet, comfortable ride.
