Approximately 70% of industrial forklift downtime results from problems with the powertrain, electrical system, cooling system or hydraulic system. With the S40-70FT, many of these mechanical issues become a thing of the past as design advances have reduced downtime by up to 30%.
Our Auto Deceleration System extends brake life by up to 60% by automatically slowing the truck when the accelerator pedal is released. (Fortis Advance, Fortis Advance+)
Controlled power reversal virtually eliminates tyre spin, increasing tyre life by up to 50%. This feature is programmable to match the needs and experience of the driver.
A choice of 4 aluminum core radiators, each with significant design and component improvements, provides the industry’s best cooling capacity – a key factor to increasing uptime and the economic life of your trucks.
