Nissan has launched 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. They are less than a metre wide and able to turn in a radius as small as 1,735mm and are designed for maximising warehouse space and for block stacking operations.
The LX Series is available in 10 lifting capacities from 1.5 to 3.6 tonnes. It is the first to feature Nissan’s latest Tri-Cat Ultra technology, reducing potentially harmful exhaust emissions by up to 99 per cent.
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. The Tri-Cat Ultra system deals with carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen. Nissan is also introducing fuel injected engines. It says that, combined with the catalytic converter, they provide an engine management system that offers up to 26 per cent greater fuel economy than with conventional fuel delivery.
Nissan has applied its Risk Reduction System to the new series which combines design elements for increased visibility and manoeuvrability. A low profile counterweight has been used for good rear visibility and maximum manoeuvrability, while Nissan’s Optiview mast can increase forward visibility by more than 50 per cent. Nissan’s Auto Tilt Levelling system brings increased accuracy and productivity to materials handling.
