|KOPS Plus Komatsu Operator Presence System - KOPS Plus &ndash; standard on the BX50 &ndash; locks out lift, lower, tilt and traveling functions when the operator leaves the seat for more than three seconds. They do not resume until the operator returns to the seat and resets the controls. A flashing yellow warning light alerts the operator when the KOPS lock is activated. In addition, the forks cannot be lowered while the key is in the off position.|
|High Efficiency Drive Train - The high torque delivered by the BX50&rsquo;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&rsquo;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.|
|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.|
|Dual Floating Structure - The Komatsu Komfort Zone is a dual floating structure that protects operators through advanced ergonomic design and reduces the effects of engine vibration, noise and heat. Vibration-dampening mounts separate the engine and transmission from the forklift&rsquo;s frame. Additional suspension mounts isolate the operator compartment from the frame. The heavy-gauge steel frame, front axle and heavy front fender connect to deliver high strength&mdash;critical for high lifting and heavy loads.|
