Because of the growing demand for high performing narrow aisle reach trucks, Nissan has taken the initiative to build the very first pantograph type reach truck in the industry. Introducing the new SRX Platinum Series of reach trucks has become part of the North American market. The Australian launch is scheduled to follow really soon.
The SRX Platinum Series of forklifts come in 3 various load capacities varying from 1360 kg to 2000. The system was made because of intensive operator contribution on the design. These factors played a big roll to guarantee its acceptance into the extremely competitive reach truck market within the US. The following excellent operator comfort and safety features have resulted for the Nissan trucks.
The entry and exit to the equipment has been simplified because of a low step height. The model's side stance design makes driving both reverse and forward more comfortable for the operator. The unit is complete with a gently sloped floorboard that is positioned to sit over 4 vibration isolators. This design offers a relaxed driving position for the operator in a standing shift. Moreover, the SRX Platinum Series provides a cushioned floor mat to provide a smoother and more comfortable ride.
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 underneath the operator's arm further improves the total comfort factor. There is a cushioned backrest and height adjustable knee pad in place too. The rear overhead guard post and the high operator backrest on the SRX Series offer additional operator protection. This is particularly important when working around racking and within tight locations.
Nissan's forklifts have been made with the intuitive and ergonomically designed interior with a multi-function handle, which helps to achieve precise control while reducing operator comfort. Some of the Operational commands include lift and lower, drive, side-shift or other auxiliary function, reach, and the horn are capable of being performed and executed utilizing this single handle.
