Nissan has taken the initiative to make the first pantograph style reach truck within the business. This was due to the growing requirement 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 Australian launch is scheduled to follow very soon.
The SRX Platinum Series of forklifts come in 3 various load capacities ranging from 1360 kg to 2000. The system was developed because of intensive operator input on the design. These factors played a huge part to ensure its acceptance into the extremely competitive reach truck market in the US. The following excellent 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 forward and reverse driving a comfortable experience for the operator. The model is complete with a gently sloped floorboard which is in place to sit over 4 vibration isolators. This particular design offers a relaxed driving position for the operator during a standing shift. Additionally, the SRX Platinum Series offers a cushioned floor mat to offer a ride which is smoother and more enjoyable.
The dual spring suspension system in the caster design adds to the equipment's smoothness of operation. This particular suspension on uneven and rough driving surfaces, the suspension has been designed to offer much better stability during operation. The thick padding situated under the operator's arm further improves the total comfort factor. There is a cushioned backrest and height adjustable knee pad in place also. The high operator backrest and the rear overhead guard post on the SRX Series offer extra operator protection. This is specially important when working in tight and around racking locations.
The multi-function handle and the ergonomically and intuitive designed interior of Nissan's forklifts are made to achieve accurate control while reducing operator comfort. Some of the Operational commands include drive, lower or lift, reach, horn and the side-shift or other auxiliary function could be performed and executed by this single handle.
