New NX features add safety, comfort, productivity + performance

New NX features add a lot to an already superior forklift. The refined NX design is lighter and stronger than ever. Long-lasting LED work lights, streetlights and truck lights make loading in the dark even safer and easier. New NX features improve visibility and fuel-efficiency, and make accessing and servicing components including the new multi-function hydraulic valve system faster, simpler and easier on your budget.

Plus, the new M8 55.3 NX is even faster and easier to mount, dismount and start. Now the only reason to get on your forklift is to get started working. That saves time – every time, which over time and the thousands of deliveries you make, adds up to major savings. All Moffett NX models come equipped with a remote start, plus Ground Start®, a unique push button start that lets you get going anywhere more quickly without ever climbing on the forklift to connect or disconnect chains. Together they help make cold weather deliveries a whole lot easier.

Plus there’s even more. All M8 NX models can be equipped with the optional Moffett Ground Mount® system. It’s a unique, patented, fully remote control system that literally lets you mount on and off the truck without ever getting on your forklift. And it’s the ultimate in productivity.

The M8 55.3 NX is the industry standard and #1 in Canada – for good reasons

The Moffett M8 55.3 NX truck-mounted forklift is a lightweight, but it’s a powerhouse – easily lifting 5,500 lbs. up to a full 12-foot lift height. Its all-wheel drive hydrostatic system with anti-stall lets you turn on a dime and allows you to easily handle long, heavy, bulky loads over the curb, in rough conditions, and even in the tightest spots. And you can easily position your load wherever you want it using the two-stage retractable mast with integrated side shift with tilt functions.

Powerful handling, plus a smooth ride and fewer emissions

The M8 55.3 NX delivers on comfort, smoother travel, and clean, quiet operation. An intake grid heater and block heater make cold weather deliveries easier to take. 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 the hydraulic telescopic stabilizers give you greater stability, capacity + ground clearance.

Productivity, durability, support, plus the highest resale value in the market

Like all Moffett forklifts, the M8 55.3 NX mounts quickly and easily on the back of your truck. Then just Lower & Go®. This patented feature makes it simple for one-person to mount or dismount in under a minute. The result? Productivity and savings. You can deliver more material with fewer people and fewer trucks.

Plus there’s even more savings with the Moffett M8 55.3 NX – the highest resale value in the market, plus the support of an unparalleled national sales and service network.
