Sit-Down Moving Mast Reach Trucks

Nov. 25, 2011

Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. introduces the new Jungheinrich® ETV/ETM 214/216 series of sit-down moving mast reach trucks. Featuring increased maximum lift heights, improved operator comfort and Jungheinrich’s 4th generation AC technology, the ETV/ETM 2 series of reach trucks is ideal for both narrow aisle and high-rack applications that require rapid maneuverability in confined work areas.

“The redesigned Jungheinrich ETV/ETM 214/216 moving mast reach trucks are equipped with enhanced features that improve performance and decrease energy consumption,” said Lucas Dumdie, Jungheinrich product marketing specialist at MCFA. “Warehouse managers also have the ability to customize the new moving mast reach trucks with several performance-enhancing option packages based on the needs of their specific application.”
One of the few sit-down moving mast reach trucks offered in North America, a key benefit of the ETV/ETM 2 Series is that operators remain seated while driving the truck. This allows for enhanced comfort especially in applications where the operator remains on the truck for extended periods of time.  

The ETV/ETM 214/216 also comes equipped with a host of features for increased performance, enhanced visibility and improved operator comfort.
Performance: Increased maximum lift heights (up to 35 feet) and increased rated capacities (over 27 feet) allow operators to perform efficiently in more difficult high-rack applications. The Curve Control feature, which provides automatic speed reduction during cornering, provides enhanced security for both the product and operator, especially in confined areas.

Energy Efficient: Equipped with Jungheinrich’s powerful 4th generation AC technology for drive, lift and steering motors, the reach truck has the ability to operate up to two shifts on one battery charge in many applications. Optional regenerative lowering also can provide longer run times on one battery charge, especially in high-lift applications.
Enhanced Operator Comfort: Designed with operator comfort in mind, the new moving mast reach truck series features a spacious operator compartment and wider armrest, which allows for a variety of operators to comfortably drive the lift truck. An ergonomically-positioned cup holder and clipboard slot provide added operator convenience.
Improved Operator Visibility: The new mast design allows for enhanced visibility through and around the mast.
The newly-introduced Class 2 reach trucks can also be equipped with various options to improve overall reach truck performance, including the Drive Plus and Lift Plus options, which increase drive speeds by nearly 2 mph and loaded lift speeds by more than 30 fpm.
Other available options include the lift control option that provides increased tilt and reach speeds depending on specific lift heights and load weights, and the operation control option that provides a warning sound and an icon that indicates when the operator has reached maximum capacity at a particular lift height. The reach truck can also be customized with various LED light options, including choice of plastic lens, multiple mounting positions and the option to automatically illuminate lights depending on the direction the reach truck is traveling.
