MECHANICAL ENGINEERING HERITAGE NO.41
This is a forklift of the internal-combustion engine type developed for the first time in Japan by ‘Toyo Unpanki Kabushiki Kaisha’ (currently Mitsubishi Logisnext Co., Ltd.) in 1949. It features an automotive gasoline engine and transmission manufactured in Japan with the following specifications: weight 3,200kg; maximum lifting load 2,700kg; and maximum lift 3.05m. It is a counter-balance type, where stability during loading and unloading is ensured by a weight mounted at the back end of the chassis and the weight of engine. This forklift is the heritage to be the norm of mechanical technologies, as it has the fundamental mechanisms widely used in present-day forklifts, including forks operated up and down with hydraulic cylinders, loading and unloading operation devices and direction changeover devices of rear wheels.
