Narrow roadways, paths and openings present unique challenges for the delivery of long loads such as lumber. This requires an agile 4-way directional forklift that can travel sideways with the load to reach the designed delivery location.

The 4-way mode selection is as simple as the flip of a switch, and you’re ready to travel sideways to your final delivery point within seconds. For additional safety in standard and 4-way mode, the FHS 55 4W is equipped with independent brakes on all three wheels.

  • This also is available in a reach model — FHS 55 4WP
