Technology with the power to deliver

The ultimate performer FD/FG40N-55N Mitsubishi Series Forklift Trucks

Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks’ new FD/FG40N-55N series is a whole new breed of forklift that’s been built from the ground up to meet the demands of users who require heavy duty, robust and reliable machines. The latest in a series of forklifts, the new N-Generation has won accolades from its users for its capacity to work even in the most demanding situations while being friendly to the environment. What’s more, these forklift represents the latest in Mitsubishi’s transport technology, enhanced safety and commitment to keeping the world green.

The FD/FG40N-55N forklift trucks — Performance without compromise.

For heavy duty applications

Made for the Most Demanding Applications

Under the hood of the N-Generation forklift is a simple, yet remarkable engine. Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks has developed and refined this robust and reliable power plant while achieving some of the lowest engine emissions in the world. And they’ve done all this without compromising engine life span, power or ease of maintenance.

Highly reliable diesel engine that passed 2008 emission gas standard*

The Mitsubishi S6S high performance engine, NOx, PM, HC emission can be controlled to comply with new environmental standards without adding common rail technology and other options. While low on emissions, S6S engines are designed to be trouble free with only simple maintenance. The result: a powerful, clean operating engine with a long life span.

*2008 Japan Emissions Standard for Specific Special Vehicles (including off-road vehicles).

*Compared with 2003 Japan Emissions Standard.

2007 emission gas standard compliant* Gasoline engine with three-way catalytic muffler

The N-Generation series also has an Advanced Electronic Control system that allows optimum management of its engine, which means lower fuel consumption. To remove environmentally toxic combustion gases a three-way catalytic muffler (standard) has been installed to create higher power yet with lower emissions.

*2007 Japan Emissions Standard for Specific Special Vehicles (including off road vehicles)

One-touch Switch to Ecology Mode*

“Power/ Soft Mode Switch” enables the N-Generation forklifts to change between power or ecology priority depending on conditions. Selecting the ecology mode means that CO2 emissions are decreased by about 13 percent, a significant reduction of this environmentally toxic greenhouse gas.

*This is an option on diesel engine forklift.

POWER / SOFT Mode switch

*Ecology Mode: CO2 emission reduced by about 13%.

Reliable Performance


Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks’ newly designed hardened steel mast rail is extremely strong and resists twisting and bending under loads that would cripple some forklifts. The mast also incorporates trouble free ball-type bushings. These bearings give the mast a longer life span and a longer service interval. Besides the optimum positioning of the mast itself, the main mast’s cylinder and chain have been placed out of the way for even better driver vision. Better vision means better safety.

Solid frame and low center of gravity design

The latest stress analysis techniques, together with proven Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks manufacturing technologies have created a long-lasting frame and body with a low centre of gravity. This translates into better performance and enhanced stability when doing heavy work or carrying heavy loads.

All N-Generation forklifts incorporate a wide, open step made from steel, not fiberglass, into its cab design. A steel step increases durability, prevents slipping and won’t crack under pressure like plastics can.

Tough base area to support heavy loads

Double pin sealing and a one -piece cast housing creates a stronger, tougher forklift base. A tougher base provides added protection and support when carrying heavy and demanding loads.

Smooth and comfortable ride

The newly developed Flexcontrol system (optional) can automatically slow down truck speed to enable smooth and jerk-free directional changing. And when combined with the wet-disc brakes (optional), the N-Generation forklifts have unrivalled handling and stopping control.

Excellent body balance and rear view

Designed not only to look good, N-Generation series forklift's new sharp form V-shaped counterweight provides exceptional stability and balance while allowing for an easier rear view, as well. The more a driver can see means better workplace safety and fewer accidents.

Effective cooling system

All N-Generation forklifts are fitted with a large, heavy-duty radiator core. The radiator’s low noise cooling fan along with optimum placement of the muffler make for a highly effective cooling system. Effective cooling translates into longer engine life and less downtime due to overheating.

FD/FG40N-55N SERIES cockpits are designed with operator safety in mind and incorporate the maneuverability, comfort and safety that professionals have come to expect from Mitsubishi forklift trucks.

To improve operator comfort while reducing strain and fatigue, the forklift is fully equipped with advanced features that make operating a N-Generations series forklifts less tiring and more productive than ever before.

Productivity and Comfort Features:

100% Full Hydraulic Power Steering

Equipped with cornering and steering knob to help prevent accidental steering slippage.

Combination Switch

Turn signal and headlight switches are combined as in passenger car.

Electric Shift Lever

Forward / neutral / reverse shift operation is easy with the touch of a finger.

Suspension Seat with Hip Support Function

Sliding and reclining mechanism to reduce back strain.

Foot Operated Inching Pedal

Wide foot space and better foot pedal position for precise control.

New Transmission

Forward 2-speed / Reverse 1-speed automatic transmission.

Power line full-floating design

The entire power train, from engine to transmission is secured to the frame by rubber mounts. These specially designed mounts absorb vibration, and make for quieter, smoother forklift operation.

“Safe” once you leave the seat.

To avoid the risk of accidents, Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks’ unique vehicle Integrated Presence System “IPS2” has been incorporated into all FD/FG40N-55N series models. This system helps to ensure safety and prevent accidents to operators, colleagues and customers alike at the workplace.

Parking brake at the seat connected Interlock

Another safety improvement to the N-Generation series of forklifts is the integral interlock system. Once an operator leaves the seat, not only the mast and travel functions are locked, but the electrically controlled parking brake is engaged* as well.

* Parking brake will only engage when forklift is on horizontal ground, and its travel speed is less than 1km/hr

Safety systems to avoid operation error

The forks on the forklift is automatically locked when the ignition is switched off, so it remains in position even if the lift lever is accidentally bumped or moved. A Neutral Safety lock is also installed to prevent the machine from sudden travel if the engine is accidentally started while in gear.

High-mounted Rear Combination Lamp

This rear combination lamp that provides clear brake, reverse and turn signals to vehicles or persons behind the forklift.

No-shock Soft Landing

This unique feature automatically slows down the forks when approaching the ground, protecting valuable goods from hard drops or shocks.

* only for two-stage simplex masts.


Integrated Digital Monitor Display


Allows excellent vision, from travel speed, gross load and other operating conditions. The monitor easily shows engine and forklift truck operations at a glance.


MITSUBISHI FORKLIFT TRUCKS assures owners of easy maintenance and a low running cost.

Longer service intervals mean that a vehicle can be used more often, saving valuable time and money. Operators and owners will find the N-Generation series of forklift easy to maintain and manage.

Well-placed maintenance points

The N-Generation series forklifts have an engine cover that opens fully along with easy-to-remove side panels. The maintenance points are easy to access and they are strategically placed to allow quick inspection or maintenance.

Easy maintenance around radiator

An easy to open half-split cover makes radiator inspection and maintenance a snap.

Improved Brake Design

A newly designed, easy-maintenance braking system that does not require hub and drum removal is installed as standard equipment. The work, time and cost required for service are substantially reduced when compared to previous models.
