PALFINGER Truck-Mounted Forklifts

truck-mounted forklifts

All NEW FHS SERIES

We didn’t design our forklift with you in mind – we created it with you by our side. The reinvented FHS Series forklift wasn’t born in a conference room or as an engineering doodle. Instead, it all started with YOU:

  • The Fleet Managers – who want a stronger, safer, more comfortable and powerful forklift with incredible visibility and maneuverability to efficiently deliver products on and around your customers’ job sites
  • The Company – that needs to deliver masonry products through soft sugar sands or up steep hills with ease
  • The Operator – who must navigate over spotless driveways, manicured lawns and confined backyards to deliver building materials The result is a product with new features, innovations, and patents that permits us to say we have truly reinvented the truck-mounted forklift. The new FHS Series forklift combines the highest level of convenience with a very appealing design and purposeful technologies. We stand by our product and back it up with our national service network, which will keep you on the road, working day after day.

PALFINGER
LOOKS NOTHING LIKE THE OTHERS

LEADER IN STYLE & DESIGN

 

The exterior has a striking look with its higher ground clearance, lower profile engine hood, powder-coated chassis, and contemporary angular styling.

Inside, there’s increased legroom and a spacious operator cabin. In addition, our patented swivel seat assembly with 25° outward rotation increases access when entering and exiting the machine. Finally, an integrated side guard provides extra protection for the operator.

When seated, the panoramic visibility is like nothing you have seen before. The driver always has the best view of the fork tips and the entire working area

Easy to Operate

Ground Control

The PALFINGER Ground Control System comes standard on all models and allows operators to mount and dismount the forklift from a truck or trailer without climbing on board.
Once the forklift is started, operators use three (3) ground-level electro-hydraulic switches on the side-mounting control panel to tilt, extend and lower the machine through the dismount sequence.
By eliminating operator slip and strain hazards from climbing on and off a truck-mounted forklift, PALFINGER’s Ground Control System raises the standard of Operator Safety. Operators are no longer required to overextend themselves by trying to climb up on the forklift to dismount from the truck or trailer.

Seeing More Than Ever Before

Spacious Operator Cabin

PALFINGER’s panoramic visibility sets a new standard in operator visibility and safety. The fork carriage utilizes Class III fork boards with a wide Class IV opening. Lift cylinders positioned behind the mast uprights give way to an unprecedented forward field of vision. As a result, seeing the fork tips has never been easier.

Re·Engineered for ergonomics

Swivel Seat

25° OUTWARD SWIVEL FOR EASE OF ENTRY AND EXIT
  • Our patented swivel seat assembly significantly increases access when entering and exiting the machine due to the 25° outward rotation.

Panoramic Visibility

5° INWARD SEAT POSITION FOR IMPROVED 360° VISIBILITY
  • The 5° inward seat position reduces body movement and neck strain when traveling in reverse and increases the operator’s rear-view field of vision.
  • The smart design of our integrated, automatically closing side guard always ensures extra protection and safety for the operator while eliminating misuse.
Increased Power and Performance

Performance+ Plus

The PALFINGER FHS 55 is highly stable, fast, rugged and exceptionally agile. It effortlessly travels over rough terrain and curbs, up hills and across all job sites. The all-wheel drive and powerful engine provide the operator with more torque and ground speed, smoother hydraulic functions and outstanding performance and handling while navigating all types of terrain.
Additional performance features include brakes on all three wheels for added safety and a pump-mounted differential lock to eliminate the need for large connecting hoses.
