The All-New PALFINGER FHS Series Looks Nothing Like Any Other Truck-Mounted Forklift!

PALFINGER Has Revolutionized the World of Truck-Mounted Forklifts



For 90 years, customers and partners have appreciated PALFINGER's pioneering spirit. True to the tagline "Together we can reach anything," we have continued to place our customers at the center of all activities. It's part of our nature at PALFINGER to always reach for something bigger, push beyond our limits, and tackle the challenges ahead with a forward-thinking attitude. That is exactly what is emphasized in our introduction of the new PALFINGER FHS Series of Truck-Mounted Forklifts.

"We see challenges not as an obstacle but as an opportunity. We create solutions and provide answers. That is what drives us as the world market leader and, therefore, the entire industry as well. Our customers are always the center of our focus. Because we can only deliver suitable products and solutions if we know their challenges," says PALFINGER CEO Andreas Klauser.

Reinvented with our customer's input, our Global & Regional Teams have worked on developing a truly unique product. The result was new features, innovations and patents that permit us to say we have truly revolutionized the truck-mounted forklift. The full range of forklifts in the 5,500-pound capacity class is available in four configurations, STANDARD, STANDARD REACH, 4-WAY AND 4-WAY REACH, and with 10' or 12' masts.

The exterior has a striking look with higher ground clearance, a lower profile engine hood, powder-coated chassis, and contemporary angular styling. Inside the spacious operator cabin, you will find our patented swivel seat assembly with 25° outward rotation, which increases access when entering and exiting the machine. Finally, an integrated side guard provides extra protection for the operator.

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.

Our new Reach Forklift is the picture of precision, efficiency and control. The Patented Reach System extends the forks forward to the centerline of the trailer while the mast remains firmly against the side of the truck or trailer. This mechanism allows the operator to lift full-capacity loads at maximum reach while retaining the ability to tilt and side shift at all times.

The FHS 55 4-Way Reach is the perfect solution for difficult, same-side loading/unloading situations. The reach system allows the operator to lift full-capacity loads from across the truck/trailer, while the steering can be switched to the front wheels to enable effortless sideways driving.

From safety and operator comfort; to performance and reliability, the new FHS series of forklifts turn an ordinary operating experience into an industry game changer. Whichever PALFINGER truck-mounted forklift you choose, you can be sure it will always be the right choice!

PALFINGER is seen worldwide as the innovation and technology leader in its industry. The company sets standards with its state-of-the-art products. With Strategy 2030, PALFINGER is evolving into a complete solutions provider with an even stronger customer focus. With its "Vision & Strategy 2030" and the two strategic pillars "Go for Solutions" and "Go Digital," PALFINGER phrases answers to global changes and for future economic success.
