Nissan has taken the initiative to develop the first pantograph style reach truck in the business. This was due to the increased demand for high performing narrow aisle reach trucks. Introducing the new SRX Platinum Series of reach trucks has become part of the North American market. The launch within Australia is scheduled to follow very soon.
The SRX Platinum Series of forklifts are available in 3 different load capacities ranging from 1360 kilograms to 2000. The system was made due to intensive operator contribution on the design. These factors played a huge roll to guarantee its acceptance into the incredibly competitive reach truck market within the US. The following outstanding operator comfort and safety features have resulted for the Nissan trucks.
Due to a low step height, exit and entry is simplified. The side stance design makes reverse and forward driving a comfortable experience for the operator. The unit is available with a gently sloped floorboard which is in place to sit over 4 vibration isolators. This design offers a relaxed driving position for the operator throughout a standing shift. Furthermore, the SRX Platinum Series offers a cushioned floor mat to provide a ride that is smoother and more enjoyable.
The caster design's dual spring suspension system adds to the overall smoothness of the drive. The suspension also offers a much more stable operation during use on uneven or rough driving surfaces. The thick padding situated under the operator's arm further enhances the total comfort factor. There is a height adjustable knee pad and cushioned backrest in place also. The high operator backrest and the rear overhead guard post on the SRX Series provide extra protection for the operator. This is specially vital when working in tight and around racking locations.
The multi-function handle and the intuitive and ergonomically designed interior of Nissan's forklifts are designed to achieve precise control while reducing operator comfort. Several of the Operational commands comprise drive, lower or lift, reach, horn and the side-shift or other auxiliary function are capable of being performed and executed utilizing this single handle.
