Speed: The new FG25N Mitsubishi forklift truck is available with a 2.1 L engine. This specific unit outperformed another competing brand's 5,000 lb. capacity model. It is offered with a 3.0 L engine which is optional. The FG25N offers better lifting and lowering speeds than its competition. It has better fuel economy and provides a slight edge regarding acceleration than its competition.
Fuel Economy: On a European testing field, the Mitsubishi lift truck has continually shown less fuel per hour compared to similarly sized Nissan, Toyota and Hyster models. To illustrate this point, compared to the Hyster truck, the FG25N used about 1 lb. less per hour. This amount of fuel can add up to thousands of dollars over the truck's lifetime.
Mitsubishi's electric lift truck trucks using AC or alternating current utilize thermal efficiencies and a lot of the other new technologies to produce high efficiency ratings. These are among the features which really make these units so popular.
Visibility: The designers at Mitsubishi produce their diesel lift trucks while taking into consideration the opening between the mast channels and the free lift assembly. Compared to rival units, these features result in a wider free space and narrow lift cylinder between the masts on all new forklift trucks. This particular design improves visibility and helps to lessen operator exhaustion.
Operator Comfort: The newly designed operator restraint system found on the Mitsubishi forklift trucks is made up of steel-wrapped hip restraints with a foam material. This design provides a lot more comfort and strength than competitors' models. The equipment have seat belts which feature a comfort stretch elastic strap to facilitate operating the lift truck in reverse. The hydraulic levers that take a lot less energy to operate and the small maneuverable steering wheel help to reduce operator exhaustion and contribute to greater overall comfort.
