Nissan forklifts reach new heights


The increasing demand for high performing narrow aisle reach trucks has led to Nissan developing its first pantograph style reach truck.

The new SRX Platinum Series of reach trucks has been launched into the North American market, with an Australian launch to follow later this year.

The SRX Platinum Series is offered in three capacities ranging from 1360kg – 2000kg.

It was developed from intensive operator input to ensure its acceptance into the highly competitive reach truck market in the US. This input has resulted in outstanding operator safety and comfort features.

Entry and exit is simplified due to a low step height. The side stance design provides comfortable forward or reverse driving and includes a gently sloped floorboard, which sits above four vibration isolators, offering a relaxed driving position throughout a standing shift. Combined with its cushioned floor mat, the SRX Platinum Series provides a smoother, more enjoyable ride.

A dual spring suspension system in the caster design adds to the smoothness and offers a more stable operation over uneven or rough driving surfaces.

Operator comfort is further enhanced with thick padding located beneath the operator’s arm, a height adjustable cushioned backrest, and knee pad. A rear overhead guard post and high operator backrest on the SRX Series provide added protection for the operator, which is especially important when working in tight areas around racking.

Nissan’s intuitive, multi-function handle is ergonomically designed to reduce operator effort, resulting in precise control.

All AC motors and controllers on the SRX have thermal protection as standard. If overheating occurs, a warning will alert the operator, immediately followed by a reduction in the truck’s performance level.
