  9. Airtrax If you think the ability to travel in any direction is our only important feature, you really don’t get it at all! • It’s what we don’t have, that counts! • We have no motor brushes or commutators, with their associated fire risk and high maintenance. • We have no grease fittings on our motor bearings –they’re lubricated for life.

  10. Airtrax • We have no oil to change in our transmissions -they come filled with synthetic lubricant and are sealed for life. • We have no pedals cluttering the floor -they would only create an impediment to access and egress, and add to operator discomfort and fatigue. • We have no steering wheel, or its attendant pump, motor, valve, hoses, actuator, and their associated maintenance headaches.

  11. Airtrax • We have no shift lever to accidentally be left in gear, risking injury to the exiting operator, bystanders, or property. • We have no parking brake lever -the brakes on all four wheels engage automatically whenever the operator brings the truck to a stop.

  12. Airtrax • We have no long throw, high effort hydraulic valve levers to tire the operator -our proportional electro-hydraulic valve system gives the operator excellent control of all functions with low ergonomic impact. • We have no problem keeping our cool -two blowers, an exhaust fan, and a duct system integral to the vehicle frame, aided by natural convection, combine to provide unsurpassed heat removal.

  13. Airtrax • We have no handedness -our traction and hydraulic joysticks can be reversed to provide equal driveability to all non-ambidextrous persons. • We have no restraints to our freedom of movement - we move like we are floating on a cushion of AIR, all the while maintaining TRAXion, to do finely controlled and useful work.

  14. Airtrax • We have no trouble seeing, or being seen. Our optional light packages enable the operator to be highly productive in a dimly lit work area, and the optional reflective striping package assures that you will be seen by others working in the area, adding to the safety of this extraordinary vehicle. • We have no equal.
