All-terrain forklifts are machines with impressive properties. They truly shine where forklifts intended for use on firm surfaces reach their limits. The Goodsense FD30 RT4 is used wherever the ground or surface is uneven or not primed.
With its all-terrain tyres, all-wheel drive option, robust construction and powerful H-series engine from Hatz, the forklift is perfectly suited for work on rough terrain. For example, RWE will be using the forklift for opencast mining as of June 2018.
In 2017, the forklift was redesigned based on a concept that is fit for the future. The requirements: Suitable for all terrain, high carrying capacity and a powerful, robust engine with advanced technology. The Hatz 4H50TIC meets these requirements perfectly: It generates enough power and performs well thanks to its state-of-the-art downsizing principle and engine that occupies only two litres of space, over 55 kilowatts output and 240 Newton metres of torque. It was a challenge to install the engine as deep as possible in order to guarantee a low centre of gravity when the forklift is in use. To achieve this in confined spatial conditions, the fan cooling the engine has been placed higher. A special solution for the side air intake is also necessary. The air supply pipe on the Hatz engine can be swivelled, which makes horizontal, side air supply possible without complicated construction or unwanted compromises.
