Outline

Equipped with a reach mechanism that enables the entire cargo mast to slide back and forth, the greatest feature of this product is its high maneuverability. It was originally developed for cargo handling on station premises, including platforms and inside freight cars in 1958. Since then, it has had an active role in a wide range of fields from food related industries to heavy industries, such as indoor warehouses with narrow aisles. As the standing-ride operation position makes getting on and off easy, it is suitable for work involving multiple duties other than driving, such as picking work in a warehouse and handling at a work site. It requires functionality as a workbench for checking forms and packing goods as well as steering functionality. This time, the stability of the vehicle and the work efficiency around the driver's seat have been improved in order to increase work efficiency and provide a psychological sense of security and reliability.
