When we first got theforkfts in everyone was saying laser, and I looked it up on that particular forklift model and it did say laser reverse warning system, but honestly know I cannot find the web page and I’m a little bussy we had 2 guys collide with electric forklifts tonight and one ended up on it’s side and the guy hurt his arm when he jumped off, he’s at the hospital know!
You could always switch out the blue LEDs and replace with laser diodes -not sure if it would be OK safety wise--probably would defeat the safety purpose

imagine if someone replaced the diodes with the 6W jobbies, and the fork was reversing, and the beam hit a cardboard boxed parcel. Of fireworks. And it set it on fire :p

Could just see it on the news

"Forklift laser safety system anything but safe. Starts fire in warehouse" :crackup:
