QuaPro-B - High Performance Strong & Smooth

Very many things are expected on the forklift.

We are trying to deliver a forklift to the distribution work site as many as possible. Also, we believe that the forklift should be usable for a long time, attaining the greater extent of a job objective, and offering safer operation.

QuaPro-B responds well to customers' many expectations.


Operable LongerLong Time Long Life

Pursued energy saving by reviewing the conventional machine from the bases.

Responded customers' desire for "long operable time" "long life" like a battery driven vehicle inescapable from the recharging work.

This forklift is friendly to the global environment trying to bring by the energy saving and the high operable capacity.

Extended 2 hours of operable time range:
* Compared with our conventional machine: When the new model is in the operation of ECO mode.
Extended the battery life for 17 per cent:
* Compared with our conventional machine.
Extended Operable Time Range

Through containing the power consumption, materialized the additional an hour operable time range a compared with the conventional model of our own. You could operate a little more additional operation. Also, achieved maximum 9.5 hours of operable time range when activating the ECO mode.

The Extension of the Battery Life Span

The new QuaPro-B materialized 17% extension of the battery lifespan compared with the conventional example. For a user usually operates a battery driven-forklift for 6 years cycle, our product lifespan is equivalent to 7 years.

Right: The Frequency of the Charge and Discharge when Operated 7.5 Hours.*

* The index of predicting the battery life by setting as cycle for the full charge to discharge 75%.

The Reduction of CO2 Emissions

Realized the reduction of CO2 emission for 210kg per year in comparing with our conventional model by reducing power consumption.

ECO mode

Please try ECO mode when you need to operate longer hours. Only one push of the button materializes maximum 9.5 hours of the operation. Staying in loading/unloading capacity, as usual, the stress-free ECO mode works for the operation preventing abrupt acceleration and speed.


Sound Nature of the MachineStability & Smooth

We Treasure Users' Cargos

QuaPro-B, equipped with the 4 functions, makes stable running and sound Loading / unloading operation possible.

  • STC (Safety Turn Control) *1
  • Semi High-Mount Trail
  • Drop Battery Box Concept
  • Long Wheel Base

We believe the stability as if the machine sticks to the ground, is excellent fundamental performance leads to the highly efficient site.

STC (Safety Turn Control)

The Safety Turn Control (STC) is the new mechanism equipping QuaPro-B that automatically controls the speed of turning. The system could control both the turning speed and torque when the machine is in turning responding to the vehicle's speed and the angle of the tires. Also, the system minimizes the cargo-swerve possible to 1/4 of the conventional models'. (According to our firm's official test).

STC contains the excessive acceleration when the vehicle is in the operation of turning or the slalom. It also benefits the shipping area in many ways with improving workers' safety and efficiency.

STC (Safety Turn Control)

With the New QuaPro-B, the cargo hardly comes to loose

With a conventional model, the cargo tends to come to loose

*1. STC supports to drive for control of the turning speed. Please be careful that STC does not work at tuning by high speed or abrupt operation which falls in a dangerous situation such as overturning or cargo falling. Please make suet to keep safety operation.

Semi High Mount Trail

Equipped with a new type Semi High Mount Trail, being laid out so as to have the rocking center and vehicle's center of gravity about 50mm closer than conventional model. The system limits the vehicle's rocking motion to lesser possible extent when the trail rocks responding to an uneven ground surface. (* 50mm: the ratio compared with the conventional model.)

Semi High Mount Trail
Long Wheel Base

The wheel base 30mm extended longer than conventional model. It contributes to the stable running.

Drop Battery Box Concept

Lower gravity center is achieved by placing the heavy battery underneath the vehicle as low as possible.

More SafeSafety

For Safety of the Logistic Site

QuaPro-B could secure not only the safety of the operator but also could be equipped with the system that makes all workers of the location could feel being secured.

We are ready to offer many kinds of the safety options to achieve the secured working environment.

More Safe

Safety Option

* When you click the number , details are displayed in the window

  1. 01 Seat Belt Interlock Option

    When the seat belt is left unfastened, all loading/unloading work get malfunctioned. The function would help to make fastening the seat belt as mandatory behavior.

  2. 02 The Warning Sound of the Parking Brake Option

    When the operator turns off the key and leaves the seat without putting the parking brake on, the warning sound is set off.

  3. 03 Blue Mark Option

    The blue LED light forestalls the operator on the closing of another forklift.

  4. 04 The Rear Assist Grip with the Horn Button Option

    The operator could sound the horn safely even when backing the vehicle without handing off the steering handle and the grip.

  5. 05 Reflection Label Option

    The yellow line could be changed to the reflector label. The label raises the safety performance up in a stylish manner.






The Device Locking the travel as the Operator Leaves the VehicleTraveling Interlock

The Traveling interlock device automatically shuts off the running engine when the operator leaves the seat. Preventing a human error from happening, such as the operator accidentally steps on the accelerator.

(Note: Does not mean the mechanical brake is automatically on. Suggesting to use the parking brake when to park the vehicle.)

The Device to Lock the Loading Move when the Operator Leaves the SeatLoad handling Interlock

Many accidents, as a matter of fact, being got caught in between the mast and the head guard happen when an operator stretches his/her body through the mast. The device prevents a human error from happening when the operator is not in the correct operating position by killing the loading lever function.

Beep! the sound is to warn the dangerous [abrupt] operation.The Alert of Dangerious Operation

The device tells the operator that the operation is dangerous with buzzing sound, of abrupt "acceleration," "deceleration," "turning" while the machine is at the work. (the sensitivity can be adjustable.)

It is available to set the sensitivity individually for abrupt "acceleration/deceleration" and "turning."

Compact TypeCompact Type

The Compact Specifications that Materialize One Step Higher Performance for its Smaller Size.

The machine with the compact specifications that demonstrates one step higher performance as the size of the vehicle stays rather small.
