Nexen Introduces X-Range Lift Trucks

Nexen Lift Trucks of Lowestoft in Suffolk has announced the introduction of its X-Range of counterbalanced forklift trucks comprising seven models with capacities from 2.0 to 3.5 tonne.

The FDX diesel 2.5, 3 and 3.5 tonne units are powered by a choice of either Kubota or Yanmar engines whilst the LPG versions in 2, 2.5, 3 and 3.5 tonne capacities are offered with a choice of Nissan or GM power units.

In addition, the X-Range is available in three distinct packages with a multiple choice of drivetrain configurations. Each package, from standard through to Optima and Optima Plus, uses only proven components of the highest possible quality to provide class-leading performance, reliability, operator ergonomics and ease of maintenance.

Optima offers a split powershift transmission as well as a controlled deceleration system, heavy-duty cooling system and modulated control for fast changes of direction. Optima Plus adds an anti rollback system, oil cooled disc brakes, an advanced inching control and soft-touch electronic hydraulics.

The new forklifts have been designed from the ground up using the very latest virtual design software and equipment and are manufactured at Nexen's modern production facility in Taiwan to exacting European standards.

Great care has been taken to ensure the lowest possible cost of ownership is combined with outstanding operating efficiency for the whole life of every X-Range machine and supported by a worldwide dealer network offering a comprehensive spare parts programme.

In fact, because Nexen has huge confidence in the build quality of its new range of forklifts it had applied a standard 2 year, 2000 hour warranty which, as an option, can be extended to 3 or 5 years.

It is the tremendous attention to detail that sets Nexen's new X-Range models apart from the competition. For example, beside opening to almost the vertical position, the entire hinged engine cover/seat assembly can be removed in less than two minutes without tools and the side panels are non-structural and designed to be repaired or replaced if necessary.

The X-Range trucks feature a very sturdy one-piece chassis and low centre of gravity for good torsional rigidity and stability. They are also equipped with 'Smart Dash', a full engine monitoring system which triggers both audible and visual advance warnings via a LCD display unit covering all major engine functions. This system will automatically switch off the engine if any problem is not rectified within a specified time in order to prevent damage.

Outstanding user comfort is ensured by the use of a fully floating driver's cell which is attached to the chassis using high quality, anti-vibration dampers. In addition, the machines are fitted with rubber-mounted steer axles.

Nexen has made a massive investment in the development of the X-Range and is confident it will be very well received throughout the world where the company is currently establishing a comprehensive dealer network.
