Rolling Meadows, IL – March 29, 2017. Komatsu Forklift U.S.A. is excited to participate at ProMat 2017 in Chicago, Illinois April 3rd thru 6th, where we will showcase our AM50 Series of compact three-wheel electric TOTAL AC forklifts, in booth #S418. The AM50 Series offers both cushion tire and solid pneumatic tire models with 3,000 / 3,500 / 4,000 lbs. of capacity.
The AM50 offers some great features that improve operator comforts and reduce overall operational costs. New AM50 features include:

  • Fully hydrostatic power steering
  • Airtight wet disc brake system to assure exceptional overall durability and low operational costs
  • Meets IPX4 waterproofing standard for reliable outdoor performance in the rain and snow as a replacement for an engine powered forklift
  • Ideal for use in freezers and coolers and in any application that may require frequent wash-downs
  • Excellent turning stability due to a high-mounted rear axle and a low-mounted battery that keeps the overall center of gravity low
  • A rubber mounted rear axle absorbs shocks and vibrations for greater operator comfort
  • Highly reliable control system with self-diagnostics
  • Optional features include Cold storage package; and Fishery specification package
The AM50 Series offers a perfect blend of power, performance and operator comforts, allowing the operator to handle the toughest applications with maximized efficiency and
productivity. With excellent maneuverability and handling ease, the AM50 is the right choice for a wide variety of applications. With its waterproof characteristics and ability to
be used outdoors, this unique model offers users a way to “Go Green” by replacing engine powered models used indoors or outdoors with an electric forklift alternative.
This could have a dramatic effect for users looking to reduce their carbon footprint and reduce their overall operational costs. Users also have the ability to choose between
cushion and solid pneumatic tires for even greater application flexibility. Visit with Komatsu representatives at Booth #S418 to view the AM50’s unique fork pocket battery and removal system, while discussing how customers can use zero battery change technologies to extend run times and operational effectiveness.
