Komatsu's Environmental and Social Activities Enhancing Quality of Life


Mitigating Climate Change (Mitigating Climate Change through Products and Services)  Market Introduction of Newly Developed Forklifts

FE25-1

The new model forklift, "FE25-1", shares the characteristic of previous battery-powered forklifts of having "1/3 the CO2 emissions and 1/5 fuel costs" (compared to diesel engine models) combined with KOMATSU's original rapid supplementary recharging system to realize extended operation time. Additionally, enhanced water and dust resistance allows it to handle various site environments including outdoors or dusty environments. By quickly expanding the previously limited operation environment to outdoor usage, it will contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions from the 2.5-ton class, which accounts for approximately 40% of the market.


Also, the driver's side monitor displays an "eco gauge" to support environmental-friendly and energy-efficient driving.

FH35-1

The new forklift models FH40-1, FH45-1, and FH50-1 announced in July 2012 are more environmental-friendly and easy to operate. The electronically controlled Hydro-Static Transmission (HST, hydraulics powered transmission) technology, developed by Komatsu achieves unprecedented fuel efficiency by reducing fuel consumption by up to 30% compared to our previous models.
In 2013, the "FH35-1" was also added to the line up and over 500 units were ordered by March 2014.
The product range for the environmental-friendly FH series will continue to be expanded in the future.
