Dual Floating Structure

The Komatsu Komfort Zone is a dual floating structure that protects operators through advanced ergonomic design and reduces the effects of engine vibration, noise, and heat. Vibration-dampening mounts separate the engine and transmission from the forklift’s frame. Additional suspension mounts isolate the operator compartment from the frame. The heavy-gauge steel frame, front axle, and heavy front fender connect to deliver high strength – critical for high lifting and heavy loads.

EZ View Mast System

With the excellent visibility window on the mast, the operator has an unrestricted view of the fork tips and surroundings. Towards the front, the mast, console and low-profile dash give maximum visibility. To the rear, the upper corners of the counterweight are angled for clear sightlines in reverse.

Fully Hydrostatic Power Steering (FHPS)

FHPS system allows easy steering, even when sitting still, and reduces operator fatigue by eliminating kickback. Operator feel and control are improved by a small-diameter steering wheel and an optional spinner knob allows easier, one-handed steering.

Angled Exhaust Ports

Angled ports aim hot engine air and exhaust gases away from the operator while traveling in reverse. The lower location of exhaust vents on the counterweight also keeps air away from the floor to avoid stirring up dust.

High Efficiency Drive Train

This rugged new drive train features an aluminum alloy transmission case for improved heat dissipation, a high-capacity oil cooler or torque converter, and O-ring face seals to greatly reduce the possibility of leaks. The full floating drive train is reliable, highly dust-resistant, and includes double-seal universal joint design.

Komatsu Operator Presence System (KOPS)

KOPS Plus locks out lift, lower, tilt and traveling functions when the operator leaves the seat for more than three seconds. They do not resume until the operator returns to the seat and resets the controls. A flashing yellow warning light alerts the operator when the KOPS lock is activated. In addition, the forks cannot be lowered while the key is in the off position.
