Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks has announced the winners of its “Keeps on Running” contest, a competition that invited customers to show how their Mitsubishi forklift truck has withstood the test of time. The winning forklift is a 1982 FGC25 Mitsubishi forklift truck used by Prescher Willette Seeds, a soybean farming company in Delavan, Minn. The family-run business was founded in 1933 and raises, cleans, packs and ships more than 100,000 bags of soybeans each year on a 3,500-acre farm. As the winner of the contest, the company received a new FGC25N Mitsubishi forklift truck.

The contest ran from August to November 2008 and was open to customers who own and operate a small internal combustion (IC) cushion-tire Mitsubishi forklift truck, with a capacity range of 2,000 lbs to 6,500 lbs. For more information, visit
