New reach truck series from Nissan


Nissan Forklift has added to its impressive line up of warehouse forklifts with the launch its latest reach truck, the RG Series. 

Years in the making, the development of the RG Series has been done with typical Nissan Forklift thoroughness and detail.

Numerous truck operators and logistics managers have been interviewed and scientific studies have been performed regarding truck ergonomics and repetitive-strain injuries. Additionally, fine tuning has been performed with a range of customers in the toughest applications. As a result, the new Nissan Forklift RG Series offers industry-leading operator comfort and safety.

The new RG Series features state-of-the-art ergonomics.

The operator compartment is multi adjustable for left-and-right armrests and seat position. Even the floor height is electrically adjustable to accommodate all operator sizes, while the optional ERGO Logic joystick provides up to nine different mast-related functions.

The specially shaped seat backrest is easily switched for looking to the left or right and the slide-down and tilt-back function supports the operator while working at high-lifting heights. The hands-free direction control and optimal placement of the LCD display, keyboard and (optional) writing desk all contribute to a relaxed working space, resulting in a more productive operator.

Together with the unique mini-steering wheel in-armrest, the RG Series offers industry leading ergonomics.

The Nissan Forklift AC TECH controller provides productive, reliable and cost-effective truck operation.

With this advanced technology the options to enhance productivity are significant, including automatic horizontal fork levelling, sideshift centering, load-weight indication and double-deep storage.

The RG Series’ performance is top notch, with drive speeds to 14.5 kmh and lift speeds to 700 mm/s and manoeuvrability in small aisles is also amongst the industry’s best. Uptime is maximised by 1000 hour service intervals, long-life hydraulic fluid with 6 per cent energy reduction and the HSHL drive wheel for reduced wear. It all means less maintenance and increased working time.

The RG Series features reach trucks from 1.2 to 2.5 tonne load capacity and a wide variety of masts, with lifting heights to 12.1m, while keeping optimal load capacities.
