New Mitsubishi battery electric designed to work indoors / outdoors

The new model is state of the art in comfort, safety and is more efficient in productivity.
One of its quality features is that the new FB-TCB series meets the new IPXS4 Enclosure rating level which means that this truck can take water splashes from all directions and angles. This makes it ideal for operating in light rain; therefore working outdoors is no longer an IC trucks turf.
Other features of the new FB-TCB series are;


The new FB- TCB series is all about creating the best working conditions for its operators. Another way this is achieved is by the increased legroom. The legroom in this particular machine has been increased by 55mm as well as the rear combination lamps being relocated to the top of the head guard to provide maximum comfort and visibility.

In addition to all the improved comfort features, the FB-TCB also comes with an array of improvements in safety, such as the mast and travel interlock system which disables the travel and hydraulic system when the driver has left their seat unattended. The FB-TCB series also comes with an emergency stop which allows the operator to stop the forklifts operation in the push of a button. Another fantastic safety feature on this series is the rear grip horn which safely allows the operator to reverse and signal others without having their hand exposed to the elements outside the overhead cabin.


Customer Satisfaction:

The new FB13-20TCB Electric Counterbalanced Forklift truck satisfies customer demand as it has now been installed with more features as standard. There are four additional models to the family, three with a larger battery compartment to allow for extended working hours by fitting bigger batteries into the truck, and one with a new 1.6 ton capacity model.
Developed for outstanding performance and genuine value for money, the award- winning range of Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks are built to a higher specification to maximise productivity and ensure complete reliability and the FB13-20TCB series is no exception.

Safer Space from Colby

Storage equipment providers will tell you that pallet racking will effectively use the overhead room creating better storage density, but as we know, not all businesses need to store more pallets.

There is another way.


Colby raised storage areas are cost effective solutions that can double the usable floor area of your factory or distribution centre, subject to regulatory approval. They are strong and secure and provide access to new overhead work areas with minimal interruption to ground level workflow.

Low cost, medium-duty floors can be easily assembled using standard Colby pallet racking components to build raised storage areas that are purpose-designed for bulk storage or additional order picking.

And while the extra space can be a valuable asset, the effort required to get stock in and up the stairs is often thought to be too much trouble to be worth it.

There is a better way.


The E-volution has been realised, the all new range of electric Clark Forklifts

Now the evolution has been realised with the new range of Clark electrics, with 3 and 4 wheel electric forklifts up to 3T capacity, all new electric reach trucks, and an all new electric tow tractor capable of towing up to 7T.

All models boast:
