Hence, omparison between Mitsubishi Forklifts parts and market equivalents
Centra Forklifts recently undertook a comparison study between selected genuine Mitsubishi Forklifts parts and their after-market equivalents. So, this study focused on ignition leads, and filters for oil, air, and fuel. Also, we compared the quality of construction, design and presentation of the identified parts. For this, the experiment done on a technician with genuine Mitsubishi. Hence, after-market examples, which were applicable to the Grendia FG25 with the K25 Engine.
The filters disassembled each part. Then, the comparisons were made around the quality of construction, design and operational performance.
Hence, the technician’s report indicated that the genuine Mitsubishi products are superior in quality to their after-market counterparts. This obviously will have a direct correlation to the operating performance of your forklift.
Here below are the summarized findings:
Genuine ignition leads are manufactured by NGK. The key benefits over the after-market leads include:
- The numbering is 1 – 4.
- There is a waterproof seal between the lead and the spark plug & distributor caps. Hence, the caps on the aftermarket leads slide up and down. This may result in starting & operating problems in wet & dirty environments.
- The terminals are crimped on-to the leads. Thus, they are ensuring a positive connection with the lead core.
Centra’s Genuine Parts Price Promise ensures that we supply only original leads that meet our strict specifications.
As components on today’s machines become more sophisticated, with higher operating temperatures and tighter tolerances, it is now more important than ever to make sure that your engine operates contaminant-free. A regular filter inspection and replacement process is the cornerstone of every good maintenance programme.
The key benefits over the after-market filters include:
- Thicker filter medium, providing greater surface area.
- Larger perforations in the central core of the filter allow for superior oil flow.
Fitting genuine Mitsubishi filters ensures:
- The highest engineering standards.
- Specific fit to suit your machine.
- Improved protection for your valuable asset.
