The versatile H400-450HD/S Big Truck series designed for outdoor use features four truck models available in both standard and short wheelbase variants with 40,000 and 45,000 lbs. of lifting capacity.
Innovative Engine Technology
The series comes standard with a Tier 4 Final Cummins QSB 6.7L engine rated at 230hp (peak horsepower) with a ZF WG 211 5-speed powershift transmission.
Together these features deliver as much as 22%* lower fuel consumption over Tier 3 products.
Engineered for tough applications, the series is ideal for long load centers, wide loads and heavy duty-cycle conditions. Performance optimization technologies such as selectable ECO-modes, idle management and on-demand cooling, work harmoniously to reduce fuel consumption on these trucks. A heavy duty cooling package ensures low operating temperatures and improves the longevity of hydraulic pumps and other major components.
The H400-450HD/S series features a load sensing on-demand hydraulic system that delivers flow only when required. The system’s variable displacement pumps are capable of more oil displacement, even at low pump speeds, meaning the engine runs at lower speeds, extending the life of components. In addition, the on-demand hydraulic system consumes up to 10% less fuel than a typical fixed displacement hydraulic system, while also producing less heat and noise.
Serviceability & Ergonomics
To simplify technician access to powertrain and hydraulic components, the series is constructed with dual gull-wing hoods and an optional tilting cab. New galvanized running boards and an improved fender design provide a broader, more comfortable standing area for service technicians, as well as easy entry and exit for operators. Furthermore, the trucks low profile carriage design, coupled with the low cowl cab design present outstanding fork tip and rearward visibility for operators. The series also offers an optional light-emitting diode (LED) light kit available in mast- or cab-mounted versions.
