Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA) has added a new Jungheinrich EJC B14/EJC B16 Heavy-Duty Electric Walkie Straddle Stacker to its North American product line. The new Walkie Stacker has a highly efficient three-phase AC technology drive system, proportional lift and lower control, optional electric power steering, and a multifunction control tiller head.
The new Walkie Stacker features improvements to the advanced drive system, including proprietary software, enhanced electrical components, and optimized cable routing, which result in longer battery life and more run time. Additional advantages include the elimination of wear items, such as motor brushes and springs, which can reduce life-cycle costs. The stacker also features advanced regenerative braking, which allows energy to be fed back into the battery for longer run times and enhanced productivity.
The new EJC series also provides quiet performance and premier handling, according to the company. Its precise speed and torque control allow for easy maneuvering even in confined warehouse applications. The series features a variable lift/lower speed control, which reduces not only the pull-down and put-away costs but also the likelihood of lift truck, rack, or product damage.
All forklift truck movement functions are accomplished via the tiller head. The tiller head is mounted low and toward the side of the truck. This maximizes the space between the operator and the chassis for increased comfort and visibility. The controls may be activated with either hand.
The EJC B14 and EJC B16 also feature dual articulating load wheel design, a crawl speed button that allows travel with handle in the upright position, and a smart auto reversing switch. Optional features include adjustable baseleg widths, a cold store package for refrigeration and freezer applications, and electric power steering.
