Komatsu CX50

CX50 forklift

The fusion of advanced engine technologies and Komatsu’s unique hydraulic system enables the CX50 Series to achieve significant reduction in total operation costs and facilitates superior working performance.

With standard wet disc brakes, and Closed-center Load Sensing hydraulic system (CLSS), the CX series achieves reduced costs of operation and reduced maintenance costs.

Also equipped with a full suspension seat and dual-floating structure to provide operator comforts that improve efficiencies and productivity. The CX50 challenges the conventional concept of the forklift.

Equipment Information


  • Wet disc brakes withstand severe conditions
  • High rigidity mast, frame, front and rear axles


  • The Fully Hydrostatic Power Steering (FHPS) system facilitates fully stationary steering as well as switchback operations using the small diameter steering wheel. The system has a superior response capability so that the operator can maneuver easily with a load even in a tight area.
  • The secure lever controls with minimum movement using fingertip operator for the F/R lever. The control levers feature contoured knobs for ease of control. A smaller steering wheel permits widened forward visibility along with the redesigned dashboard for complete fork tip visibility.
  • A unique dual vibration cushioning system reduced vibrations in the compartment, steering wheel, control levers and the mast. Any vibrations transmitted from the engine or road surface are quickly absorbed. The system is friendly to both the operator and the load.
  • KOPS Plus – standard on the CX50 – locks out lift, lower, tilt and traveling functions when the operator leaves the seat for more than three seconds. They do not resume until the operator returns to the seat and resets the controls. A flashing yellow warning light alerts the operator when the KOPS lock is activated. In addition, the forks cannot be lowered while the key is in the off position.
  • Komatsu’s unique cushioning valve enables controlled braking force that precisely reflects the pressure on the brake pedal.
  • Two counterweight air outlets are provided on the left and right sides and an exhaust pipe outlet is provided at a lower position. This prevents the operator from being exposed to hot air from the radiator and exhaust gases while driving in reverse.
  • The full suspension seat provides improved operator comfort. The deluxe seat features improved vibration resistance and reduced stress on the body. This seat features six-step reclining backrest, seat cushion adjustable dial and a retractable seat belt.
