Airtight Wet Disc Brake System

An airtight wet disc brake system assures dependable and reliable braking performance in virtually any working environment.

Fully Hydrostatic Power Steering System

FHPS system allows for smooth and easy stationary steering and switchbacks. With its smaller 12” steering wheel, the AE50 achieves superior responsiveness and has the ability to maneuver quickly in tight spaces.

IP X4 Waterproof Standard Specification

Meets the IP X4 international waterproof standards through meticulous design considerations within the proportional hydraulic control valve, control
micro-switches, potentiometers, and control signal circuits. All AE50 models can be used in coolers, freezers, outdoors and also can be washed down with running water.

Side Battery Access

Easily remove or exchange the truck battery facilitating continuous operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Ergonomic Combination Lever

The combination lever optimizes operating processes by cutting down on unnecessary movements. Operators smoothly and effortlessly operate lifting, lowering, tilting and select travel direction with a slight touch of the switch on the lifting lever. All functional controls are within easy reach from the ideal seated position.

KOPS Plus Komatsu Operator Presence System

In compliance with ISO3691, KOPS Plus cuts travel and lift/lowering three seconds after the operator leaves the seat. This travel and lift/lower interlock system allows hydraulic or traveling operations only when the operator is properly seated. Also, an alarm is activated if the operator leaves the seat without applying the parking brake. KOPS Plus remains activated even when the operator returns to the seat, and the interlock system can only be released by returning respective levers to their neutral position.

Excellent Visibility

With the operator positioned to the left side of the truck, excellent visibility is afforded in all directions. With a high visibility mast, and the meter panel positioned on the top of the dashboard, the operator has a clear front view to clearly see the fork tips.

Easy Access for Entry and Exit

A low and spacious step area, entry and exit offer minimal effort from the operator. With a spacious assist grip, slim steering column design and deck mounted control lever, the operator can enter or exit from either side of the truck.
