Capable of long working hours with zero emissions, the compact TX Series forklifts combine environmental responsibility with financial sense and operator comfort in a perfectly-sized package.
There are seven models in the TX Series of forklifts with load capacities between 1250kg and 2000kg. Highly manoeuvrable due to centrally-positioned twin steer-wheels, each TX forklift is capable of handling a wide variety of jobs.
The TX Series of Nissan forklifts features a high-performance AC power controller that’s highly efficient and regenerative braking function, similar to an electric car that tops-up the battery by converting braking energy to electricity.
Twin drive motors power one wheel each and when turning, the inside wheel counter-rotates, effectively allowing the machine to turn on the spot.
Other power-saving features in the zero emission forklifts include on-demand power steering, which only uses power when actually turning and a programmable power-off function that will turn the machine off after a preset time even if the operator leaves the seat.
Battery life is obviously job-dependent but can stretch to days between recharges as experienced by an operator in NSW’s Hunter Valley wine region.
Importantly, under normal operating conditions TX Series forklifts are designed to operate for 1200 hours between services, keeping downtime to a minimum and facilitating easy service scheduling.
Fully-enclosed wet-type multi-disc brakes not only provide effective stopping power and precise control, they are also largely maintenance-free. Sealed from the elements, their design also does away with brake dust, improving the air quality in the workplace.
This feature goes hand-in-hand with the absence of diesel or LPG fumes and conventional engine noise, making TX Series forklifts particularly suited to noise-sensitive or enclosed working spaces.
Operational considerations aside, Nissan TX Series trucks are popular with drivers because of their ergonomic controls, comfortable seating, excellent visibility and class-leading manoeuvrability.
Aided by a small-diameter, tilt-adjustable steering wheel the operator also gets a detailed, multifunction LCD display, which provides comprehensive operational and maintenance information at a glance.
Other safety-related features include a warning buzzer that activates if the operator leaves the seat without applying the parking brake, while a mast-lock helps prevent accidents by automatically locking the lift-and-tilt functions if the operator’s seat isn’t occupied.
These features are all part of Nissan’s Risk Reduction System, an intelligently integrated system that seeks to minimise the chance of inadvertent or unexpected forklift operation.
