FH70/80-2

  • Tire type Pneumatic Pneumatic
  • Power type Diesel Diesel
  • Capacity 7 000 - 8 000 kg 15,400 - 18,000 lbs.

Construction strong

Shuttling 15k-18k loads quickly with minimal downtime is beyond the ability of many forklifts. But that’s where the FH70/80 shine. They integrate components and technology proven over many years in Komatsu’s wheel loaders, bulldozers and excavators, so you know they’re built tough. The hydrostatic drive system gives them the ability to cycle through operations with virtually no wear on drive and brake components, meaning more uptime and reduced maintenance costs. That translates to better performance than traditional torque converter systems, even in the most demanding applications.

  • Reduced fuel consumption while reducing particulate exhaust by 90%
  • Lower total cost of ownership
  • Less maintenance and higher productivity with HST

Features and benefits

Highly efficient proprietary diesel technology

The FH family diesel engines are designed to reduce fuel use and significantly reduce exhaust particulate matter. They incorporate Komatsu proprietary technologies like Komatsu Diesel Oxidation Catalyst, variable flow turbocharger and much more.

Makes engine revving unnecessary

Featuring a variable displacement pump with closed-center load sensing system, the FH family allows for controlled fluid flow in the hydraulic system while lifting, resulting in no engine revving and reduced fuel consumption.

Designed to lower operating costs

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

Best-in-class warranty

Expect years of trouble-free service. But just in case, Komatsu stands behind the product with the longest and strongest warranty in the industry, up to 24 months and unlimited hours, 60mo/8k hours drive train. That’s coverage you can count on.

Technology that helps you manage your fleet

Komatsu’s Komtrax proprietary wireless tracking and reporting system allows the forklift to communicate daily usage, fuel consumption, operator productivity and more. Easy to use and web-based, it gives you secure usage data anywhere, anytime.

Engineered to exacting standards

Komatsu Engineering Standards (KES) are design and manufacturing standards that exceed those required in the industry. Through KES, we strive to deliver unmatched quality and durability across all our mining, construction and forklift machines.
