Powerful Moffett Pantograph reach + Lift Assist®

PL stands for Moffett’s Pantograph system with patented Lift Assist® arms. With it, you reach across the deck and lift and unload at full capacity. So you never have to turn your truck around! That equates to less fuel, time and labour costs. You can do more and save more. That’s productivity.

Need more? New NX features add safety, comfort, productivity + performance

What’s the big plus? The M8 55.3PL NX was already Canada’s number one truck-mounted Pantograph reach forklift, and the latest addition of the NX package takes it to a whole new level. The refined design is lighter and stronger than ever. NX improves visibility. It’s more fuel-efficient and makes accessing and servicing components including the new multi-function hydraulic valve system faster, easier and even more economical. It has long-lasting LED work lights, streetlights and truck lights to make night time loading safer.

And best of all, the new M8 55.3PL NX is even faster and easier to mount, dismount and start. In fact, the only reason to get on the machine is to get working. That saves time – every time – and with the thousands of deliveries you make that can add up to major savings. The M8 55.3PL NX comes standard with Ground Start®, a unique push button that lets you get going anywhere more quickly without getting on your forklift.

All of this can be made better yet. Moffett Ground Mount™ is a patented, fully remote control system that literally lets you mount on and off the truck without ever getting on your Moffett. It’s the ultimate time saver and is now an available option on all M8 NX series.

It has it all – PLUS!

The new Moffett M8 55.3PL NX truck-mounted forklift has all the great M8 NX series features: 5,500 lbs. lift up to a full 12-foot height. An all-wheel drive hydrostatic system with anti-stall that lets you turn on a dime and easily handle heavy, bulky loads in tight spots, over the curb and in rough conditions. The two-stage retractable mast with integrated side shift with tilt functions allows easy positioning of your load where you want it.

Its powerful Tier 4 Kohler 56 hp Turbo diesel engine has lower emissions and is DPF-free, so there’s no filter to clog. An intake grid heater and block heater are a boon in cold weather. Hydraulic telescopic stabilizers give you greater stability, capacity and ground clearance. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Moffett without its unique Lower & Go® system that lets one-person mount or dismount in just one minute. No waiting, no other equipment needed – so you can deliver more with fewer people and fewer trucks.
