POWER AND CONTROL - The AC traction motor eliminates brushes and many component wearable parts. This reduces operating cost and maintenance compared to conventional DC motors. The AC motor provides high drive torque and allows for better control when reversing, braking or when operating on ramps and inclines. This feature enhances the truck’s performance and improves the operator’s “feel” of the forklift, resulting in increased operational productivity. Electronic control of lift guarantees improved, precise control of mast functions and reduces required energy. This results in less battery usage and longer run times.
STEERING - The ME AC Series features a hydraulic controlled rack and pinion power steering system. This rack and pinion system was specially designed and engineered by V. Mariotti to replace the old hydraulic chain and sprocket gear system found in previous models. This type of power steering is found on most front-loading forklift trucks on the market today. It is however an innovation for trucks with a capacities of less than 2300 lb. Elimination of the sprocket, chain and hydraulic motor improves precision, reliability and reduces maintenance costs. This method also reduces energy usage increasing run time.
ERGONOMICS AND SAFETY - Although the ME AC is compact and agile, it has been designed to optimize on-board space and to offer the operator a comfortable, safe working environment. The truck is easily accessible and equipped with a fully adjustable seat with back and armrest adjustment. The steering column is also adjustable and is located on the cross member allowing additional foot room. The hydraulic operating levers are easily reached and ergonomically engineered to comfortably accommodate the operator.
The adjustments described allow the operator to make the proper selections to allow maximum comfort when operating the forklift. The ME is fitted with hydraulic brakes and features two travel speeds, normal and slow in which not only is speed reduced but also acceleration. All this increases control when maneuvering in tight spaces or working at considerable heights.
OPTIONS - In addition to an extensive list of standard features, the ME AC Models feature a vast range of options to meet your specific material handling requirements: - Cold Storage or Freezer Package - Headlights and Taillights - Non-Marking Tires - Wide Rear View Mirror - Various Attachments - If you need additional options, ask you dealer to check for availability.
