It is an important factor, to select a reach-type forklift, that with how short turning radius the machine could take. With the shorter radius, a warehouse operator could have higher stowage efficiency by narrowing the width of an aisle. Also, when the operator could not change the width, turning with comfortable room may contribute to the safer work conditions.

Energy Saving


Reduction of power consumption cost

A reduction in power consumption cost of 24% compared to our previous models has been achieved by reducing power consumption.

QuaPro-R design concept: Energy saving

QuaPro-R is the first reach-type forklift model to adopt IPM motor which is a drive motor.

In addition, we pursued thorough high efficiency, such as revising adopted parts like the AC motor for load handling operations,

reducing the vehicle weight, and optimizing the layout of devices and each type of control.

Low power consumption level that tops the industry has been achieved (compared to our previous models: 24% decrease). Reductions in power consumption cost (24% decrease) and CO2 emissions (356 kg decrease/year), and prolong of operating hours (+approx. 2 h/day) are realized. Together with the improved efficiency of the working environment, we will offer our customers an eco-friendly materials handling environment.

Human Sensible


Intuitive operation with man-machine feeling

Materialized the manipulative feeling delicately reflecting the operator's mind.

QuaPro-R design concept: Integration of human and machine.

The inching ability of the QuaPro-R during travel and load handling has been thoroughly revised to realize spontaneous operation in response to the operator's intentions. Moreover, operator-oriented vehicle manufacturing has been conducted for easy getting on and off by lowering the floor while maintaining good mast visibility. The integrated human-machine operation feel enhances load handling efficiency, and leads to overall productivity improvement.

In addition, AWC (small turn radius control) is equipped to realize its key concept of a minimum turning diameter (minimum right-angle stacking aisle width). Selection to minimize 90-degree turning (stacking mode) during load handling can be performed freely.

The QuaPro-R pursues a comfortable operation feel that goes one step further.
