Ultra low emissions lift-truck range

Published:  11 August, 2007

Nissan is launching a range of compact, low emission engine lift trucks designed for the multi-purpose role of inside working in restricted areas and outside yard operations. At less than a metre wide and able to turn in a radius as low as 1735mm, they are ideal for maximising warehouse space and for block stacking operations.
The new LX Series - available in 10 lifting capacities from 1.5 to 3.6 tonnes - is the first to feature Nissan's latest Tri-Cat Ultra technology, reducing potentially harmful exhaust emissions by up to 99%.

The system will be rolled out as standard across all of Nissan"s LP gas trucks - a range from one to seven tonne capacity - by the end of 2007.

Safety and productivity continue to be Nissanís priorities with the new compact LX Series. The Tri-Cat Ultra system provides the lowest emissions in the marketplace and is the only system fitted to a lift truck by a manufacturer as standard to address all three toxic substances produced when LP gas is burned - carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen, so protecting both the operator and surrounding workforce.

Nissan is also bringing another "firstĒ to the lift truck market, with the introduction of high performance, fuel injected engines designed and produced by the company especially for its forklift ranges.

Combined with the Tri-Cat Ultra three-way catalytic converter, they provide an engine management system that offers up to 26% greater fuel economy than with conventional fuel delivery. The forklift manufacturer has also applied its Risk Reduction System to the new series.

In the case of a compact lift truck required to work in areas where space is restricted, good visibility is essential. Here, an extremely low profile counterweight has been incorporated for good rear visibility and maximum manoeuvrability, while Nissanís Optiview mast can increase forward visibility by more than 50%.
In operation, Nissanís Auto Tilt Levelling system brings increased accuracy and productivity to materials handling. The truckís forks are tilted to horizontal at the touch of a button, allowing the load to be positioned with greater speed, accuracy and safety.

There is further protection through a mast lock system that automatically prevents the forks from being lowered and the mast from being tilted when the operator has left the seat. The vehicleís control system also acts automatically to restrict travel speeds and acceleration when the truck is turning, and to reduce lift speeds when travelling.
