DESIGNED to deliver strong performance and
high levels of operator comfort, the Mitsubishi
Grendia FD100-160AN1 series is available in
five different models with capacities ranging
from 10 to 16 tonnes.
The FD100-160AN1 is powered by a
Perkins 1204E electronically-managed diesel
engine. Featuring dual turbochargers, the four-
cylinder engine allows for controlled, powerful
acceleration, providing an abundance of low-
speed torque. The engine drives through a power
shift transmission that provides three speeds in
forward or reverse. Maintenance access to the
engine is easy, as removing a panel behind the
cab allows access to all major components.
The fully enclosed cabin not only shields
operators from the elements but has heating,
variable temperature air conditioning, heated
rear window for humid days, and front and back
windscreen wipers and washers.
Fingertip controls allow for
precise and smooth movement
of the mast, while a display
panel provides the operator with
important information about the
status of the forklift. An adjustable
full-suspension seat offers support
to operators of all sizes, while the cabin’s forward
position allows for good vision over the forks.
The FD100-160AN1 is fitted with Mitsubishi’s
Integrated Presence System (IPS) switch, which
locks out all of the truck’s functions unless the
driver is correctly sitting on the seat.
Key applications of the FD100-160AN1
include the movement and transport of shipping
containers, timber, concrete and stone products,
heavy duty industrial and building materials,
machinery, and steel coils and pipes.

A specialist warehouse identification signage
service promises to eliminate confusion and
upgrade productivity in the warehouse.
RackID provides a turnkey solution for the
implementation of warehouse identification
systems – location labels, signage and related
services. Whether you just need the supply
of high-quality labelling or the installation of a
variety of identification products such as end of
aisle signage, pallet ID, floor identification and
changeable shelving locations, RackID works
with clients to provide the most appropriate
and efficient solution to improve the functional
efficiency of the warehouse.
RackID is a boutique, Australian business
whose managing director – Peter Stuckenschmidt
has over 25 years’ experience within the
logistics and warehousing industry. Since starting
the business in 2010, it has grown to provide
turnkey solutions to some of the biggest logistics
companies operating in Australia – Linfox, DB
Schenker, Toll, Mainfreight, Kuehne & Nagel
and many more – as well as providing support
to smaller businesses looking to grow into this
sector. Its target is to make the transition into a
new warehouse, or the upgrade/modification of a
current warehouse, run as smoothly as possible,
removing the hassles of creating an accurate
location database, or trying to make sure the
labels have been placed correctly.
Rather than having in-house personnel spend
time trying to create data, then source, print
and apply labels, RackID provides a service
that removes the burden from the customer
and ensures that the job will be completed in
a timely and efficient manner. No hours will
be lost to having staff remove labels or signs
placed in the wrong area or on the wrong beam,
printing and reprinting labels with the wrong
layout or barcode format. If the installers make
errors then it is their job to identify them early
and rectify them at no extra cost to the client.
RackID’s approach is to make sure both
the accuracy of the location database and the
aesthetics of the warehouse. Accurate and
clean installation of location ID is integral for the
functioning of a warehouse. The easier the system
is to understand, read and follow, the more
accurately and quickly product can be picked
and replenished. Simple systems utilised by
RackID help reduce the number of picking errors
and increase the speed at which locations, and
therefore products, can be found and identified.
