Built to enhance the bottom line, the new FH100-160-1 series of forklifts from Komatsu integrate components and technology from the company's wheel loaders, bulldozers and excavators, making them ideal for high cycle and 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, leading to better performance than traditional torque converter systems.

The high power and rugged design of FH100-160-1 forklifts make them ideal 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 enhanced durability, fade and water resistance, and prompt constant, reliable braking in high-cycle operations.

Designed to deliver years of 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 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, movement and more. Easy to use and web-based, it provides secure usage data anywhere at anytime. Valuable data can then be used in daily reports on fuel consumption and monthly/annual operational records to track how machines are being used to help determine how to use them more efficiently.
