Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas Group Launches Two New UniCarriers Forklift 80-Volt Electric Pneumatics Trucks

MARENGO, Ill., June 21, 2022 -- Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas group, the exclusive manufacturer and provider of UniCarriers® Forklifts across North, Central and South America, announced today the official launch of the MX2 and MXL Series 4-wheel electric pneumatic forklifts with 5,000-7,000 and 9,000-12,000 lb capacities. These battery-powered forklifts are available to all UniCarriers brand dealers across North and South America, as well as the Caribbean.

Some key advantages of this product include:

  • Models range from 5,000 to 12,000 lb in capacity.
  • Dependable performance, quiet operation, and adaptability, all while meeting a zero-emission footprint.
  • Long-lasting battery enhances performance by minimizing the need for frequent charging or changes.
  • Advanced technology such as acceleration boost provides additional power to the motor when the system senses speed reduction.
  • Sealed wet disc brakes minimize brake wear and extend timing needed between brake service helping to reduce maintenance costs and total cost of ownership.
  • Excellent visibility as a result of optimized mast, steering wheel, inclined and narrow dashboard and counterweight design, maximizes visibility to load, forks, front and rear wheels for sage, confident operation in tight spaces.

"We're excited to introduce our new forklift series, which provide the same quality and reliability our products are known for, but with a longer runtime for maximum performance in the field," said Niels Tolboom, director, North American Sales for UniCarriers Forklifts at Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas. "These additional features and advancements bring out the best of an operator's time, ultimately delivering ideal uptime and productivity during a day's work."

The MX2 and MXL Series are available now. For more information, visit:
