The Power of PL: Moffett Pantograph Reach + Lift Assist®

The PL in M8 55.3 PL NX is for Moffett’s Pantograph system with patented Lift Assist® arms. With it, you never have to turn your truck around! PL lets you reach across the deck and lift and unload at full capacity. You can do more and save more on every job, and save on fuel, time and labour costs – productivity with a capital P.

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

The M8 55.3PL NX was already Canada’s #1 truck-mounted Pantograph reach forklift. But the newly redesigned NX package takes it to a whole new level. It’s lighter and stronger than ever. It improves visibility. It’s more fuel-efficient. It makes accessing and servicing components (including the new multi-function hydraulic valve system) faster, easier and more economical than ever. And it has long-lasting LED work lights, streetlights and truck lights to make loading and deliveries in the dark a whole lot safer.

What’s more, now the only reason to get on your machine is to start working. The M8 55.3PL NX comes with Ground Start®, a unique push button start that lets you get going anywhere more quickly without getting on your forklift. Plus, the M8 55.3PL NX is so fast and easy to mount, dismount and start, you save time – every time – on all the thousands of deliveries you make. That adds up to big savings.

There’s more yet. Add the optional Moffett Ground Mount™ fully remote control system, and you can literally mount on and off the truck without ever getting on your Moffett. It’s the ultimate in productivity.

It has it all – and more!

The new Moffett M8 55.3PL NX truck-mounted forklift has every one of these great NX features and more: 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 long, heavy, bulky loads over the curb, in rough conditions –even in the tightest spots. And a two-stage retractable mast with integrated side shift with tilt functions so you can easily position your load right where you want it.

The M8 55.3PL NX’s powerful Tier 4 Kohler 56 hp Turbo diesel engine has lower emissions and is DPF-free, so there’s no filter to clog. Its intake grid heater and block heater make cold weather deliveries easier. Hydraulic telescopic stabilizers provide greater stability, capacity and ground clearance.

And you save time – every time. Moffett’s unique Lower & Go® system quickly and securely releases the forklift onto the mounting chains for faster loading and unloading. With your Moffett, one person can mount or dismount in under a minute. No waiting, no other equipment is required; it lets you deliver more using fewer people and fewer trucks.
