New Mitsubishi forklift developments looming here
The Mitsubishi FD70NM is on its way


Mitsubishi has launched a broad new range of 6- and 7-tonne counter balance diesel forklifts.

Likely to be available here in the comiing months, they were among a slew of new items destined for our shores that Australian dealers amongst others saw at the Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks 2014 Dealer Management Conference earlier this month.

"The highlight of the conference was the launch of three new Mitsubishi product ranges: a new 10 to 16 tonne range of sophisticated forklifts with an extensive option list; a new sit-on reach truck that offers lift height of up to 13 meters; and … a new 6- and 7-tonne range with reduced turning radius and higher retained capacity," Mitsubishi says

"The FD60-70NM series continues to enhance Mitsubishi’s reputation for producing quality reliable machines."

The 6- and 7-tonne series consists of two models powered by the S6S diesel engine and that feature a suspension seat and full floating power train.

Options include operator cabin, high dust protection, various mast types, factory fitted hydraulic attachments and assorted fork types are all available.

 "The new range represents Mitsubishi’s drive to stay ahead of competitors and provide solutions for our customers to meet the constant changes in technology and work environments," Gary Hodge, national sales and marketing manager at forklift dealer and services firm MLA Holdings, says
