Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. has added a Jungheinrich EJC B14/EJC B16 Heavy-Duty Electric Walkie Straddle Stacker to its North American product line. The new stacker implements a three-phase AC technology drive system, proportional lift and lower control, optional electric power steering and a multi-function control tiller head. Enhancements to the advanced drive system include features such as proprietary software, enhanced electrical components and optimized cable routing. The new EJC series also integrates quiet performance and premier handling, as precise speed and torque control allows for easy maneuvering even in confined warehouse applications, the company says. The series features variable lift/lower speed control, which lowers pull-down and put-away costs while reducing the likelihood of lift truck, rack or product damage. The EJC B14 and EJC B16 also feature patented dual articulating load wheel design, a crawl speed button that allows travel with handle in the upright position, and a smart auto reversing switch.
