Mitsubishi has introduced EDIA EM, its latest three and four wheel, 48 volt, 1.3 to 2.0 tonne electric couterbalance series.
Features include FeatherTouch electric steering which provides ‘force feedback’ to aid precision. The average noise level for the truck as a whole, in standard industry test, is less than 66 dB(A) for the three wheel and 67 dB(A) for the four wheel. It also features hydraulic and travel interlock technology in its Integrated Presence System (IPS) and it also features IPS2, which prevents all movements if the driver is not seated and gives seat belt and parking brake reminders.
For extra security, IPS2 automatically applies an electronic parking brake when the driver leaves the seat, and when the truck is being driven a hill hold feature prevents accidental rolling.
