Because of the growing requirement for high performing narrow aisle reach trucks, Nissan has taken the initiative to develop the very first pantograph type reach truck in the business. Introducing the new SRX Platinum Series of reach trucks has become part of the North American market. The launch within Australia is scheduled to follow very soon.
The SRX Platinum Series is available in 3 capacities. These load capacities vary from 1360 kg to 2000. The system was made because of intensive operator participation on the design. These considerations played a huge part to guarantee its acceptance into the incredibly competitive reach truck market in the US. The following excellent safety and operator comfort features have resulted for the Nissan trucks.
The entry and exit to the machinery has been simplified thanks to a low step height. The unit's side stance design makes driving both forward and reverse more comfortable for the operator. The model is available with a gently sloped floorboard which is positioned to sit over 4 vibration isolators. This particular design provides a relaxed driving position for the operator in a standing shift. Moreover, the SRX Platinum Series provides a cushioned floor mat to provide a ride that is smoother and more enjoyable.
The dual spring suspension system in the caster design 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 located beneath the operator's arm enhances the total comfort factor further. There is a cushioned backrest and height adjustable knee pad in place as well. The rear overhead guard post and the high operator backrest on the SRX Series offer extra protection for the operator. This is especially vital when working in tight and around racking locations.
Nissan's forklifts have been designed with the intuitive and ergonomically designed interior with a multi-function handle, that helps to achieve precise control while reducing operator comfort. Several of the Operational commands consist of drive, lower or lift, side-shift or other auxiliary function, reach, and the horn are capable of being performed and executed utilizing this single handle.
