4-Way is the way to go

What's unique about the Moffett 55.4 NX 4-Way is just that - it's four-way. At the touch of a button you can instantly turn all wheels 90 degrees and travel sideways through narrow openings and tight spaces - even with a very long load. It saves wear and tear on your truck. It lets you deliver directly to hard to reach building sites that your truck can't otherwise safely reach. And it means there's no waiting around for other personnel or equipment and no heavy manual material handling.

New NX features add safety, comfort, productivity + performance

New NX features make the M8 55.4 model better than ever. The refined design of the M8 55.4 NX improves visibility. It's lighter, stronger, more fuel-efficient and makes accessing and servicing components - including the new multi-function hydraulic valve system - faster, easier and more economical. It has long-lasting LED work lights, streetlights and truck lights to make night time loading even safer and easier.

What's even better? The new M8 55.4 NX is now even faster and easier to mount, dismount and start. In fact, the only reason to get on the machine is to get to work. That saves time - every time - and with the thousands of deliveries you make that can add up to major savings. The M8 55.4 NX comes standard with Ground Start®, that lets you get going anywhere more quickly without ever climbing on the forklift or trailer.

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 a huge time saver and is an available option on all M8 NX series models.

The new Moffett M8 55.4 NX is a nimble forklift and can lift a substantial 5,500 lbs. @ a 24" load centre up to a full 12-foot lift height. An all-wheel drive hydrostatic system with anti-stall gives you absolute turning control and lets you manoeuvre long, heavy, bulky loads in even the tightest spots, over the curb and in rough conditions. The two-stage retractable mast with integrated side shift with tilt functions lets you easily position your load precisely where you want it. And like all Moffett forklifts it mounts and dismounts in under a minute, plus lower emissions and a host of other patented features.

What does all of that mean? A competitive edge. Pick and choose the order you load and unload. Deliver whenever you want - day or night. And deliver more products in less time. No wonder it's a favourite in the building supply, pipe, steel and general cartage industries to name a few.

Smoother handling + lower emissions

You want smooth, clean, quiet, comfortable operation no matter how heavy the load, and the M8 55.4 NX gives you that. The intake grid heater and block heater make cold weather jobs easier. And its powerful Tier 4 Kohler 56 hp Turbo diesel engine has lower emissions and is DPF-free, so there's no filter to clog. And hydraulic telescopic stabilizers give you greater stability, capacity + ground clearance.


Like all Moffett forklifts, the M8 55.4 NX fits easily on the back of your truck. And with Moffett Lower & Go®, one-person can mount or dismount in under a minute - so you can deliver more product with fewer people and fewer trucks. That's productivity that has a positive impact on your bottom line.

The M8 55.4 NX is an investment that gives back for a lifetime. Moffett forklifts have the highest resale value in the market. And they're backed by Atlas Polar's unparalleled national service network.
