Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks has introduced the 48 Volt OPBH10NH.
The redesigned high level order picker will allow picking at heights up to 11.5 metres, it has an AC hydraulic motor to deliver fast lifting speed.
The lifting mechanism is located under the cabin floor, allowing the cabin wall to be thinner so that loads are easier to reach. The pallet lift will raise loads to a maximum height of 750cm. Splitting the control unit access to the load has been enhanced and the risk of accidentally operating controls while leaning to reach the load has been reduced.
It also has an inductive hand detector which will not allow operation of the truck unless both hands are safely within the cabin. The detector responds only to flesh and cannot be fooled by placing some other object where the hands should be. It has AC drive, strong regenerative breaking and high capacity batteries and battery change rollers.
