You have never driven a lift truck like this before. The all-new 3,000 to 6,000 pound TCM PRO pneumatic lift trucks are 100% clean sheet designs engineered to increase your operation's productivity and profitability! More than 58 years of TCM innovations and continuous improvement have been built into TCM PRO, making them the most reliable, powerful, and productive TCM lift trucks ever. Optimized to deliver outstanding performance every day, they also feature improved safety, operating precision and simplified maintenance as top priorities. Their state-of-the-art features include:

Powerful, economical engines run cleaner and stronger: The upgraded LPG, gasoline, and dual fuel engines meet Tier 3 specification, yet give up nothing in power and economy. They operate cooler because of airflow improvements through the engine compartment. The dual fuel models change from LPG to gasoline and back with just the flip of a switch without any mechanical adjustments. Our diesel models remain legendary for their dependability and power.

All-new TCM transmissions deliver quiet reliability: TCM designs and builds these transmissions with cast iron cases and larger, more robust shafts, bearings, and gears. In addition, they have larger torque converters and clutch packs to handle severe duty applications. They also feature a totally redesigned oil suction circuit for quiet operation.

All-new TCM masts deliver smooth lifting: Revised and strengthened mast cross members resist twisting motions during operation to give superior control and stability. A relocated main cross member improves fork tip visibility for safety, and revised tilting geometry allows placement of the tilt cylinders under the floor for greatly increased space. The operating temperature of the hydraulic oil has been reduced by 50 degrees F by upgrading mechanical components and hydraulic circuitry.

Improve your Operators' productivity: The new TCM PRO Dual Isolation System effectively prevents vibration from reaching the Operator by isolating the engine and drive train from the operator platform. The optional suspension seat is adjustable for position, weight balance, tilt, and incorporates a built-in restraint system. The wide-open floor space has been increased by 45%, and is the largest floor space ever designed into a TCM pneumatic lift truck! The steps are also wider - 55% wider - for easier entry and exit. The instrument cluster monitors all truck functions, and incorporates LCD technology that is easy to read even in bright daylight. The small steering wheel with standard spinner and smooth, precise controls make load handling easy and quick. The dash and mast cross member have been lowered to give a 50% improvement in forward visibility.

Improve your Operators' safety: A complete safety system of interlocks is standard on these trucks, including neutral safety switch, weight sensing seat interlock, tilt cylinder lock, and an optional mast lift lock. The three piece overhead guard is designed for protection and economical collision repair. The high-mount brake and backup lights are integrated into the OHG for protection and are vibration resistant for long life.

Simple yet rugged chassis: The steer axle structure has been strengthened and its bushings have been improved for longer service. A special damper cushions and stabilizes the axle for stable operation over uneven surfaces, yet requires no periodic maintenance. An improved front/rear stability ratio gives more stable and consistent load handling, and increases the operating capacity of the truck.

Designed for quick, low cost maintenance: Tool-free removable side panels and floorboards give complete access to the mechanical systems. Filters and drains are easy to reach. Control valves and mast connections have been simplified for leak-free operation. TCM brakes are the largest in the industry, and will not overheat even in high cycle operations. On board diagnostics are included for easy troubleshooting. Electrical components, including all relays and the ECM connector are located together in the front of the engine compartment for quick access.
