  Cushion forklifts are great for indoor  applications - BX50 Series


IC Cushion Forklifts

Cushion forklifts refer to the type of tire on your forklift. Cushion tires are the best choice for indoor applications. They give a comfortable, smooth ride and are agile and maneuverable which is necessary when working indoors. Komatsu's BX50 series offers you a cushion forklift that runs on liquefied propane gas. (LPG)  This series comes in load capacities from 4,000 lbs to 6,500 lbs.


  • Dual Floating Structure: Komatsu's dual floating structure's advanced ergonomic design will protect your operators by reducing the effects of engine vibration, noise, and heat. It includes additional suspension mounts that isolate the operator's compartment from the frame of the forklift.
  • Angled Exhaust Ports: The BX50's angled ports keep hot engine air away from your operators when they are reversing, thus reducing exposure to hot engine air and exhaust fumes. Its exhaust vent is located low on the counterweight to keep these gases away from your operators as well as away from the floor to prevent stirring up dust.
  • EZ View Mast System: The BX50 is designed with an excellent visibility window on the EZ view mast which allows your operators an unrestricted view of the fork tips and their surroundings.


IC Pneumatic Forklifts

Pneumatic Forklifts are designed for the more rugged terrain outdoors. Komatsu offers 6 different series of IC pneumatic forklifts with a choice of LPG/Dual Fuel or Diesel power.
