Mitsubishi in the running for three FLTA Archies

The UK Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks Dealer Network is celebrating – following news that its EDiA EM three and four wheel electric range has made it to the finals in the FLTA Awards for Excellence… in three of the event’s four product categories.

Mitsubishi’s 48-volt electrics were shortlisted for Ergonomics, Safety and Innovation and, for good reason, according to Stewart Gosling of Red Diamond Distribution, the exclusive importer for Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks in the UK.

“EDiA EM is by far our most agile and intelligent truck yet,” says Stewart. “But, on top of that, it offers the driveability and high-comfort features that we’ve come to associate with Mitsubishi.

“And it is that combination which keeps operators productive and happy and employers efficient and profitable.”

In Ergonomics, EDiA EM was recognised for its operating space, which has been optimised to keep drivers of all shapes and sizes operating comfortably with minimal risk of strain and fatigue.

Golsling adds, “What’s more, EDiA EM leads the class on manoeuvrability. Its more than100deg steering angle ensures no rear-end kick and it means that four-wheel models have the turning power of three-wheelers.

“But that’s just the start as you can specify EDiA EM three-wheelers with 'no-pause' 360deg steering, eliminating the need for conventional three-point turns. And it was this that impressed the Committee creating the shortlist for the FLTA Safety Award 2019.
