4-Way is the only way to go

What makes the Moffett 55.4 NX 4-Way unique is just that. At the touch of a button, its 4-way steering lets you turn all wheels 90 degrees to travel sideways through narrow openings and tight spaces – even with a very long load. It lets you deliver directly to hard to reach building sites that your truck can’t otherwise safely reach. There’s less wear and tear on your truck, no waiting around for other personnel or equipment, and no risky manual material handling.

New NX package adds safety, comfort, productivity + performance

The M8 55.4 was already the best, and the new NX features make it better than ever. The M8 55.4 NX has a refined design that’s lighter, stronger, more fuel-efficient, improves visibility and makes accessing and servicing components – including the new multi-function hydraulic valve system – faster, easier and more economical. And long-lasting LED work lights, streetlights and truck lights to make loading and unloading in the dark even safer and easier.

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. The standard 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. Hydraulic telescopic stabilizers give you greater stability, capacity + ground clearance.

What’s even better? The new M8 55.4 NX comes standard with some great features that make it faster and easier than ever to mount, dismount and start. It fits easily on the back of your truck. Moffett Lower & Go® lets one-person mount or dismount in under a minute so you can deliver more product with fewer people and fewer trucks. And the new remote Ground Start® lets you can get going anywhere more quickly without ever climbing on the forklift or trailer – there’s no reason to get on the machine now unless it’s to get to work. That saves time – every time. It’s productivity that positively impacts your bottom line.

And even better yet. Add Moffett Ground Mount®. This patented, fully remote control system is a huge time saver that literally lets you mount on and off the truck without ever getting on your Moffett.


All this means a significant competitive edge. You can choose the order in which you want to load and unload. You can deliver whenever you want – night or day. And you can deliver more products in less time. No wonder that building supply, pipe, steel and general cartage industries rely on it.

The M8 55.4 NX is an investment that delivers lifetime returns. Moffett forklifts have the highest resale value in the market, and they’re backed by our unparalleled national sales and service network.
