FHS 55 P

Truck Mounted Forklift
Imperial Metric
Reach Across Bed 51"
Added Fork Tilt 0° / 6°

The FHS 55 Reach forklift is the picture of precision, efficiency and control. Our patented Reach System extends the forks forward to the centerline of the trailer while the mast remains firmly against the side of the truck/trailer. This allows the operator to lift full-capacity loads at maximum reach while retaining the ability to tilt and side shift at all times – ensuring safe load handling.

In addition, the reduced pallet and truck bed damage risk is a crucial advantage as the operator can lift their load free and clear of the deck.

With the unique PALFINGER Reach System, you can offload from just one side of the truck or trailer, no matter how confined the job site is.

Main Frame Channels

The sturdy main frame uses a Standard 4 channel section, which enables the use of larger diameter and wider mast carriage rollers that greatly reduce loading and wear.

Carriage Cylinders

Carriage cylinders are recessed below the mast carriage, providing a lower center of gravity for the machine and added protection from damage caused by falling debris.
