Modern Safety Features

Modern safety features include the Guardian Stability System (GSS) and the Operator Sensing System (OSS), which work together to enhance stability and improve operator safety. Superior visibility has been achieved through various improvements, such as an optimized mast design, a lowered dashboard and a redesigned overhead guard in a bar-type configuration. 

Additionally, these vehicles are equipped with electronic parking brakes (EPB) and a programmable speed limit for both forward and reverse movements. For added safety, the BOP15S-9 comes with auto-directional alignment as well as height proximity sensors. The BR18/BR20SP-7 Plus models include an auto-centering drive tire and smooth electronic power steering. 

These modern safety features collectively contribute to a safer and more secure operating environment.

Rugged Reliability

Easy-to-diagnose and fully adjustable Curtis AC controls provide an unbeatable combination of power, performance and functionality, while the AC drive and steer and pump motors deliver smooth movement and lower energy consumption, with no traditional brushes to fail or the need to be serviced. 

The controller and motor cutback system offers excellent protection to the drive and lift motors for added reliability and durability in demanding applications, while water-tight seals on the electrical connections prevent water from penetrating and causing short circuits.  

Heavy-duty components are manufactured to strict tolerances, which reduce wear and extend service life, while centralized major components make preventative maintenance quick and simple.

Outstanding Productivity

These machines not only prioritize safety but also ensure enhanced productivity.  

Easy-to-diagnose and fully adjustable Curtis AC controls provide an unbeatable combination of power, performance and functionality, while the AC drive and steer and pump motors deliver smooth movement and lower energy consumption, resulting in fewer maintenance intervals when compared to DC motors. 

LED lighting, multi-travel modes and top-tier travel speeds make sure you can get where you’re going safely and quickly. The BOP15S-9 allows the operator to set up to eight preset height selections, further enhancing productivity. The ergonomically designed operator compartments assure your operators are provided with the highest levels of comfort and control possible. A bright, intuitive electronic display provides adjustable performance modes and onboard diagnostics. 

These reliable productivity enhancements make these lift trucks an asset in all operational environments.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

AC motors used in this system are incredibly low maintenance, requiring little to no attention. Troubleshooting is made simple and efficient with the help of Curtis onboard diagnostics (OBD). Additionally, the stabilizing caster's spring tension can be easily adjusted, ensuring a smooth and stable ride for the user. The rear door design is another advantageous feature, as it provides convenient access to the main components, facilitating faster and easier maintenance procedures. 

Service intervals have been extended, requiring less downtime and a lower cost of repairs. Wide opening doors and hoods allow ample access to main components, while fuses and relays are centralized for convenient access.
