4-Way Steering PLUS Pantograph with Lift Assist®

The full- featured Moffett M8 55.4PL NX model has it all and beyond – the Moffett Pantograph reach system with patented Lift Assist® hydraulic arms AND 4-Way control! You won’t ever have to turn your truck around! 4-Way steering lets you manoeuvre long, heavy loads sideways through narrow areas, and the pantograph forks let you reach across the deck to lift and unload at full capacity.

AND New NX features elevate safety, comfort, productivity + performance

NX features add a lot to the M8 55.4PL – an already great forklift. The Moffett M8 55.4 PL NX can easily lift and deliver a full 5,500 lbs up to a full 12-foot off the side of the deck. And the design of the new M8 55.4PL NX has been refined to be lighter and stronger than ever. NX features improve visibility, make it more fuel-efficient, and make accessing and servicing components (including the new multi-function hydraulic valve system) faster, easier and easier on your pocket. Long-lasting LED work lights, streetlights and truck lights make loading and unloading safer and easier – even in the dark.

The new M8 55.4PL NX is now even faster and easier to mount, dismount and start. Like all Moffett forklifts it fits easily on the back of your truck – one-person can mount or dismount in less than a minute. The M8 55.4PL NX comes standard with Ground Start®, a unique push button ignition that lets you get going more quickly without ever climbing on the forklift – no matter where you are.

The bottom line? You deliver more product with fewer people and fewer trucks. You save fuel, time and labour costs on every delivery that add up to productivity and major savings. In fact, the only reason to get on your Moffett is to get to work.

An added plus? Add the optional Moffett Ground Mount®. This patented, fully remote control system literally lets you mount on and off the truck without ever getting on your Moffett, and is the ultimate in time saving and productivity.

The combination of 4-Way and Moffett pantograph with Lift Assist® gives you a leg up on the competition. And you’re in complete control – pick and choose the order you want to load and unload; deliver whenever, wherever and whatever time of day you want; deliver right to hard to reach places without turning your truck around. No wonder the M8 55.4PL NX is a popular model for the building supply, pipe, steel and general cartage trades.

Lower emissions + powerful handling

No matter how challenging the delivery, you want operation to be smooth, clean, quiet and comfortable. Like all the NX models, the M8 55.4PL NX has a powerful Tier 4 Kohler 56 hp Turbo diesel engine with lower emissions that is DPF-free, so there’s no filter to clog. Plus they have an intake grid heater and block heater to take the sting out of cold weather jobs. And the M8 54.4PL NX has hydraulic telescopic stabilizers for greater stability, capacity + ground clearance.
