TOKYO, JAPAN, Komatsu Forklift Co., Ltd.
has introduced new family of Internal combustion engine trucks ranging from 1ton through 3.5ton capacity that optimize operational capabilities and increase safety and economical performances for various conditions. (Please note that this new series have not been introduced to North American market yet.
) Komatsu new AX50/ BX50
Series offer innovative dual floating structure provides maximum comfort and productivity for operator with an improved ORS seat. Super Lift Hydraulic System has been developed to provide firm and class-leading idling lift speed with better fuel economy.
Sharp styling with manoeuvrability, low centre of gravity and dynamism. New Komatsu Cabin
design with emphasis on operator's comfort, provide extensive views to the front and rear. Wide and open steps to make getting in and out easy and under floor mounted tilt cylinders provide a comfortable space for operator's feet and legs.
Newly developed fuel efficient, powerful Komatsu 4D92E, 4D94LE
, and 4D98E series diesel engine
are available to fit into every type of applications with meeting the stringent EPA and EU emission regulations.
New Nissan 4-cylinder K15, K21

unique design on major vital components, such as rigidly improved Frame, Transmission and brake, Steering axle, Mast, Overhead guard and Engine hood have been fully tested at the simulated bench tested for full life span of the truck. Increased cooling capacity and optimum air flow further increase reliability and durability of power train and hydraulic components. By the careful engineering analysis of field failure reports, quality improvements such as face-seal connection on main and PS hydraulic circuit, patterned gasket on tanks and tie-rap less electrical wiring had been incorporated for Zero-leak and to extend the mean time failures to 40 % or more.
