Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks' latest range of GRENDIA ES 1.5 to 3.5t diesel counterbalance trucks will be fitted with full belly plate and sealed rear wheel arches as standard.
The decision, believed to be an industry first, is a key factor in the manufacturer’s drive to minimise downtime and boost long-term reliability in the toughest operating conditions.
The Belly Seal protective package comprises full belly plate with sealed rear wheel arches plus cyclone air filter, which combine to prevent dust and dirt being drawn up into the engine where it can cause damage and clog the radiator.
An industrial-designed engine with chain drive camshaft – again as standard – eliminates the need for a timing belt and associated replacement downtime and maintenance costs. At the same time, managed engine performance makes the GRENDIA particularly fuel efficient.
