Nissan Forklift Introduces New GO6 Series Pneumatic Tire Engine-Powered Forklift Truck for Heavy Lifting and Efficient Operation with Lower Exhaust Emissions

Marengo, IL (May 2011) – Nissan Forklift Corporation introduces the GO6 Series to its Platinum line. The Platinum family's newest member has a larger lifting capacity coupled with a fuel-efficient diesel engine.

The heavyweight pneumatic tire GO6 Series forklift truck features a powerful diesel engine, allowing it to lift loads of up to 17,500 pounds and heights of up to 26 feet. The diesel engine, equipped with a turbo charger, has a common rail fuel injection system that uses the optimal amount of fuel for greater power and fuel economy. Its turbo charger creates more power by forcing compressed air into the cylinders. This constant pressure boost occurs over the entire rpm range, for greater torque at low speeds. To further maximize the turbo's benefits, an intercooler chills the compressed air, creating a denser intake charge. As a result, more power is produced with a large reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions through its Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR). It is through this design that the GO6 emits exhaust levels well below what is required by Tier III standards.

The GO6 Series forklift truck uses hydrostatic power steering for greater control and maneuverability. It increases operator comfort with a full suspension seat, wide view carriage and two-speed automatic transmission. The seat-actuated power interrupt feature prevents lift and tilt functions when an operator is not on board.

Platinum GO6 models include an engine protection and warning system that reduces the engine rpm when there is excessive heat generation.

"The GO6 Series forklift truck not only provides the reliable performance and increased productivity that our customers have come to expect, it also keeps the air free from heavy exhaust emissions," said Steve Cianci, director of marketing and product management at Nissan Forklift.

Nissan Forklift Corporation designs, manufactures and supports a complete line of material handling equipment that delivers features resulting in greater dependability, higher productivity and lower operational costs. Headquartered in Marengo, Ill., Nissan Forklift has a network of nearly 100 authorized dealerships with over 225 locations across North, South and Latin America, as well as additional worldwide locations
