|Fully Hydostatic Power Steering - Even when the BX50 is sitting still, its Fully Hydrostatic Power Steering (FHPS) system allows east steering. The FHPS system also reduced operator fatigue by eliminating kickback. Operator feel and control are improved by a small-diameter steering wheel and an optional spinner knob allows easier, one-handed steering.|
|High Efficiency Drive Train - The high torque delivered by the BX50’s powerful K21 and K25 engines is channeled through a new transmission designed and manufactured by Komatsu. This rugged new drive train features an aluminum alloy transmission case for improved heat dissipation, a high-capacity oil cooler or torque converter, and O-ring face seals to greatly reduce the possibility of leaks. Komatsu’s extensive experience with demanding construction machinery applications led to a highly reliable, highly dust-resistant, double-seal universal joint design in the full floating BX50 drive train.|
|Angled Exhaust Ports - Hot engine air and exhaust gases are tiring to the operator. On the BX50, angled ports aim hot engine air away from the operator while traveling in reverse. Exhaust vents located low on the counterweight keep exhaust gases away from the operator and also away from the floor to avoid stirring up dust.|
|EZ View Mast System - With the excellent visibility window on the EZview mast, the BX50 operator has an unrestricted view of the fork tips and surroundings. Towards the front, the newly designed EZview mast, console and low-profile dash give maximum visibility. To the rear, the upper corners of the counterweight are angled for clear sightlines in reverse.|
