Komatsu’s electric counterbalanced forklifts bring bold improvements to the market with significant reductions in total operating costs while improving truck performance and productivity. Komatsu’s AE50 and AM50 Series of four-wheel and three-wheel electric cushion and pneumatic tire forklifts feature innovative engineering ideas to show Komatsu’s commitment to fulfilling customer needs, conserving or environment, and reducing total cost of ownership.
An airtight wet disc brake system assures dependable and reliable braking performance in virtually any working environment. Unlike conventional drum and shoe braking systems that require periodic checks and maintenance, Komatsu’s wet disc brake system can go up to 10,000 hours with little more than oil changes, thereby providing more uptime and greatly reduced maintenance costs over the life of the truck.
With a low and spacious step area, entry and exit from the AE50/AM50 Series is accomplished with minimal effort thereby reducing operator fatigue. With a spacious assist grip, slim steering column design and deck mounted control levers, the operator can enter or exit from either side of the truck.
A Komatsu original design, based upon the advanced ergonomic knowledge, the combination lever optimizes operating processes by cutting down on unnecessary movements. Operators can 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, ensuring operator comfort even during long, continuous operation.
