The AX20/BX20 series uses the new Komatsu Advanced Power Steering System (KAPS) to achieve improved steering performance. Closed-circuit hydraulics and a feedback link improve operating stability even on uneven road surfaces. The electric control mechanism changes the flow of hydraulic fluid almost immediately with a touch of the lever. The AX20/BX20 series uses a soft landing mast to decrease the level of noise and shock when the fork is lowered to the ground. With this mast, mast-lowering speed is reduced just before the end of the stroke.
