Due to the growing requirement for high performing narrow aisle reach trucks, Nissan has taken the initiative to develop the first pantograph style reach truck within the industry. Introducing the new SRX Platinum Series of reach trucks has become part of the North American market. The launch in Australia is scheduled to follow very soon.
The SRX Platinum Series of forklifts are available in 3 different load capacities ranging from 1360 kg to 2000. The system was developed due to intensive operator participation on the design. These considerations played a huge roll to guarantee its acceptance into the incredibly competitive reach truck market within the US. The following excellent safety and operator comfort features have resulted for the Nissan trucks.
Because of a low step height, entry and exit is simplified. The side stance design makes forward and reverse driving a comfortable experience for the operator. The model is available with a gently sloped floorboard which is positioned to sit on top of 4 vibration isolators. This particular design provides a relaxed driving position for the operator in a standing shift. In addition, the SRX Platinum Series offers a cushioned floor mat to offer a ride that is smoother and more enjoyable.
The caster design of the dual spring suspension system adds to the machines smoothness of operation. This suspension on uneven and rough driving surfaces, the suspension has been built to provide much better stability during operation. The thick padding situated beneath the operator's arm enhances the total comfort factor further. There is a cushioned backrest and height adjustable knee pad in place too. The high operator backrest and the rear overhead guard post on the SRX Series provide additional operator protection. This is especially essential when working around racking and in tight locations.
Nissan's forklifts have been designed with the ergonomically and intuitive designed interior with a multi-function handle, that helps to achieve precise control while reducing operator comfort. Several of the Operational commands include lift and lower, drive, horn, side-shift or other auxiliary function and reach could be executed and performed by this single handle.
