Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc (MCFA) has introduced the new Jungheinrich ECR 327/336 series of electric end rider pallet trucks. The end rider is the first product designed by the Jungheinrich Design Center Houston for North America as a result of the August 2009 manufacturing and distribution agreement between MCFA and Jungheinrich AG.
The ECR 327/336 electric end rider pallet trucks, available in 6,000- and 8,000-lb capacities, are ideal for a variety of applications, including order picking, long-distance transporting, and loading/unloading trailers. Built for speed and productivity, the new end riders feature:
•Quick acceleration—Operators can rapidly obtain maximum speed with smooth and precise control due to the proprietary AC-controller and optimal programming.
•Speed—The ECR series can reach a maximum speed of 9.3 mph, making it ideal for applications that require long distance transporting.
•Smooth directional changes—The highly responsive regenerative braking system provides a seamless transition from one direction to another while maintaining load stability.
•Strong gradeability performance on inclines—The high-level of performance and control on slopes is made possible by the proprietary Jungheinrich-built motor and high output controller, which were specifically designed to meet the application demands of this product.
•Operator comfort—The operator platform has a spacious surface area, letting operators comfortably adjust their position throughout the day. A “foot alcove” permits a wider stance and helps ensure the operators’ feet are correctly placed entirely on the platform.
Designed for durability, the ECR series features thick forks, a cast steel frame, and sealed electrical components. The ECR can also be provided with an optional corrosion protection package that provides a galvanized coating on key components, increasing durability in wet and corrosive environments. Equipped with standard features such as an electromagnetic brake, advanced regenerative braking, and adjustable casters, the ECR series is designed to maximize uptime while lessening the need for routine maintenance.
