Komatsu, one of the world's leading manufacturers of construction and mining equipment, has recently unveiled its latest innovation, the FH-2 SERIES diesel forklift, which is the latest addition to the hydrostatic drive family. This new Tier 4 diesel hydrostatic drive family achieves its durability and low costs of ownership from its rugged designs and field proven components in the 8-11t range.
The Komatsu FH-2 SERIES diesel forklift is designed to perform in the most demanding, high-cycle operations. With Komatsu’s hydrostatic drive system, standard wet disc brakes, and Closed-center Load Sensing hydraulic system (CLSS), the FH series achieves reduced costs of operation and reduced maintenance costs.
The hydrostatic drive system is a unique feature of the Komatsu FH-2 SERIES diesel forklift. This technology allows for precise control of the speed and direction of the forklift, making it highly efficient and easy to operate. The wet disc brakes provide better stopping power, making the forklift safer to operate, while the CLSS system ensures a consistent flow of hydraulic fluid, reducing wear and tear on the hydraulic components and extending their lifespan.
Lower Cost of Ownership
The Komatsu FH-2 SERIES diesel forklift is designed to be highly efficient, reducing operating costs for businesses. By using the hydrostatic drive system, the forklift is able to maintain its speed, even when carrying heavy loads, without consuming extra fuel. This reduces the amount of fuel the forklift needs, resulting in lower fuel costs and fewer emissions.
Additionally, the forklift’s rugged design and high-quality components make it highly durable, which means lower maintenance costs for businesses. The Closed-center Load Sensing hydraulic system (CLSS) ensures that hydraulic fluid is only used when it is needed, which reduces wear and tear on the hydraulic components, making them last longer and requiring fewer repairs.
KOMTRAX: Komatsu’s Exclusive Information Data Management System
Is another unique feature of the Komatsu FH-2 SERIES diesel forklift is KOMTRAX, Komatsu's exclusive information data management system. This system allows businesses to track the performance of their forklifts in real-time, giving them valuable insights into how they are being used and how they can be optimized for maximum efficiency.
The KOMTRAX system provides a wealth of data, including fuel consumption, operating hours, and maintenance schedules. This data can be used to identify areas where the forklift can be optimized for better performance, reducing operating costs and increasing productivity.
Overall, the Komatsu FH-2 SERIES diesel forklift is a powerful and efficient addition to the hydrostatic drive family. Its unique features, such as the hydrostatic drive system, wet disc brakes, and CLSS hydraulic system, make it highly efficient and easy to operate, while its rugged design and high-quality components make it durable and require less maintenance.
With KOMTRAX, businesses can track their forklift's performance in real-time, making it easier to optimize for maximum efficiency. All of these features make the Komatsu FH-2 SERIES diesel forklift an excellent investment for any business looking to lower their costs of ownership and increase their productivity.
