Construction strong

Are you burning out your forklift fleet by constantly shuttling 8k-11k loads? Maybe you need forklifts designed to handle such heavy duty with ease. The FH series integrates 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 lower cost of ownership 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 Hydrostatic Drive

Highly efficient proprietary diesel technology


The FH family diesel engines are EPA certified Tier 4 Final, 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.
