Forklifts engineered for demanding outdoor applications

Efficient performance

In heavy duty applications, you need a lift truck with the power to get through the toughest challenges while avoiding high running costs.

  • Cummins turbo diesel engine pairs with ZF WG 161 transmission, optimized for maximum performance and fuel economy
  • The Tier 4 Final after-treatment package offers cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), a Selective Catalytic Reduction system (SCR) for NOx reduction, a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) for Particulate Matter (PM) removal, and a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) dosing module
  • ECO Modes control maximum engine RPM and throttle response for balance of performance and fuel savings
  • On-demand hydraulic system can result in 10% lower fuel consumption - $2,250 per year at $2.50/gal
  • Empty seat engine shutdown turns off the truck when the operator is out of the seat for a selectable 3-15 minute window, limiting idle hours on the truck
  • On-demand cooling uses viscous drive cooling fan that draws power only when cooling is required - unlike a direct drive fan
Operator comfort

The GP-DF series is designed to keep operators comfortable and focused, for lasting productivity.

  • Low step heights for easy entry and exit
  • Low noise thanks to vibration dampeners for the powertrain
  • High, open carriage and mast sections offer unobstructed view of fork tips
  • Optional foot directional control pedal for quicker, smoother control of travel direction
  • Optional Accutouch mini-lever e-hydraulic controls accompany the adjustable armrest for low-effort, fingertip control of hydraulic functions and horn
Maximum productivity

The GP-DF series delivers the performance you need to meet the highest performance benchmarks in tough duty cycles.

  • Automatic throttle up provides automatic response to lift inputs from the operator when the lift lever is activated, with a controlled rev-up to keep the engine in the most efficient operating range
  • Maximum travel speed of 18 mph, with load present
  • Fast lifting speeds of 79 ft/min, with or without load present
  • Lowering speeds of 98 ft / min with load present
Service and dependability

The GP-DF series offers the build quality, smart features and serviceability to keep performing, shift after shift.

  • Sideways tilting cab offers unobstructed access to the engine and key components
  • CAN bus connections help to reduce fault identification time
  • Longer service intervals increase uptime and reduce service costs. LSH oil change is up to 6,000 hours, transmission oil change interval is 2,000 hours.
  • Sturdy mast design with less deflection than comparable overhead tilt products
  • Engine protection system monitors coolant, air intake temperatures and oil pressure
  • Transmission system monitors pressure, temperature and forward/reverse lockout during changes in direction
  • Efficient hydraulic system does not require engine speeds to run as high to extend component life
  • Quad-cooler radiator design channels only cool air, not preheated air, across cores
