KeyTroller Tire-Saver N Series
January 30, 2008

Keytroller’s Tire-Saver N Series device is a quick fit — plug and play–for new model Toyota, Cat, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Doosan, and Komatsu lift trucks. It will install in minutes, allowing salesmen to demonstrate the effectiveness of the device to their customers quite easily. Older existing model Tire-Savers will fit to any other model gas, LPG, or diesel lift trucks with electrically actuated directional control. Tire-Saver prevents all transmission abuse and significantly improves tire life on forklifts and other industrial vehicles by not allowing directional change – if the vehicle speed or engine RPM is above the setpoint. How it works: When an operator tries to reverse vehicle direction when speed or engine RPM is above the setpoints, the Tire-Saver will not allow the directional change to take place and the vehicle will continue in the same direction as if it were in neutral. This forces the operator to brake until speed/RPM is reduced below the setpoints —then direction change is allowed.
