More than 80 years of heritage building tough forklift trucks is brought to bear in the H550-700HD/S forklift, available in seven models with 55,000 to 70,000 lbs. of lifting capacity for use in applications:
Innovative Engine Technology
This big truck series comes standard with a Tier 4 Final Cummins QSB 6.7L engine rated at 270hp (peak horsepower) with a ZF WG 211 5-speed powershift transmission.
Together these features may help increase efficiency by delivering as much as 25% lower fuel consumption over Tier 3 products.
Engineered for tough applications, the new series is designed for long load centers, wide loads and heavy duty-cycle conditions. Coil rams are available in a number of configurations for steel industry and port applications.
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 to assist in providing a longer life for hydraulic pumps and other major components.
All H550-700HD/S series feature a load sensing on-demand hydraulic system to deliver flow only when required. Variable displacement pumps capable of more oil displacement, even at low pump speeds, mean the engine runs at lower speeds, extending the life of components while operating more quietly. The system consumes up to 10% less fuel than a typical fixed displacement hydraulic system while producing less heat and noise.
Serviceability & Ergonomics
To simplify maintenance and daily checks, the series is constructed with dual gull-wing hoods and an optional tilting cab, which provide easy access to the powertrain and hydraulic components. The new series also offers a low profile carriage with chains located outside of the mast channels enabling outstanding visibility of fork tips as well as rearward visibility.
