Strength & Reliability

In our design of the ELITE COUNTERBALANCE, we took more into account than just motion. We developed our drive axle to provide long life and marginal downtime. Our design includes an all steel design with stacked counterweights, a larger tank to replace cooling system, STD knuckle steering for tighter turn radius, STD Engine, and more. Reliability is unrivaled while never compromising ELITE quality.

Ergonomics & Visiblity

Ergonomics is critical as we included large steps, easy to reach rails, and exits from both sides of the ELITE COUNTERBALANCE. The operator compartment boasts a clear view mast with a low profile chassis to allow driver to see the fork tips to enable the highest visibility. Our design team has incorporated multiple ergonomic features into the intuitive and user-friendly cockpit, putting all the ELITE controls within easy reach.
