Chicago, August 24, 2021 — Built to enhance the bottom line, the new FH100-160-1 series of forklifts from Komatsu integrate components and technology proven over many years in their wheel loaders, bulldozers and excavators, and that dependable toughness makes them ideal for high cycle/heavy load applications. The hydrostatic drive system allows FH100-160 forklifts to shuttle continuously with virtually no wear on drive and brake components, meaning more uptime and reduced maintenance costs. That means better performance than traditional torque converter systems, even in the most demanding conditions.

The high power and rugged design of FH100-160-1 forklifts make them outstanding choices for industries where heavy loads are common, including freight/logistics, shipping/ports, manufacturing, construction, metal industries, oil/gas, recycling/waste and more.

Engineered to lower operating costs

The highly efficient, electronically controlled hydrostatic transmission (HST) hydraulic pump and motor system increases operator control, minimizes power transmission loss, helps moderate fuel use and reduces environmental impact.

Brakes suited for high cycles, harsh conditions

Sealed wet multiple-disc brakes provide protection from dust, dirt and debris, provide superior durability, excellent fade and water resistance, and prompt constant, reliable braking in high-cycle operations.

Designed to deliver years of reliable, low-cost service

The FH100-160 diesel and Tier 4 Final engine, electronics and hydraulics are engineered to work together seamlessly to provide years of outstanding performance, sustainability and dependability.

Technology to boost efficiency. Komatsu’s Komtrax wireless tracking and reporting system allows the forklift to communicate daily usage, fuel consumption, operator productivity, location and movement and more. Easy to use and web-based, it provides secure usage data anywhere, anytime. Valuable data be used in daily reports on fuel consumption and running costs and monthly/annual operational records to track how machines are being used to help determine how to use them more efficiently.
