Mitsubishi EDiA is an Innovation finalist
15 December 2014
The Mitsubishi EDiA EX 2.5 to 3.5t electric counterbalance has been shortlisted for the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) Annual Awards for Excellence in the Innovation category.
The FLTA’s awards committee – which scrutinises entries – is said to have been particularly impressed by the Sensitive Drive System (SDS) on the range.
The SDS’ ground-breaking software allows the truck to sense exactly how a driver wishes to operate and then automatically adjusts the machine’s reactions and performance in tune with the individual operator’s input to suit the needs of the person and the application.
The EDiA EX can be steered using just the front (drive) wheels, ensuring high levels of control on slippery surfaces.
Winners will be decided by an online vote, with people invited to vote for their favoured choice in each of the four main categories on the FLTA website before 15 January 2015.
