Internal Combustion Forklifts

Clark internal combustion forklifts are available in both gas and diesel, with load capacities from 1500 kg to 8000 kg. The main advantage of internal combustion forklifts is that they are quick to refuel but the disadvantage is that most are for outdoor use only. Generally speaking, internal combustion forklifts are more powerful and can travel faster than their electric counterparts.

Rugged Durability, High Performance, Extreme Environments, Demanding Applications

The GTS series of internal combustion forklifts is designed to tackle any task placed in their path. Their almost maintenance free wet disc brakes (enclosed and oil cooled) ensure the best possible brake performance. Compared to drum brakes 50% less pedal effort is needed  which is a real advantage for long shift applications. With many different cabin versions are available, the GTS series of internal combustion forklifts can be individually equipped to be used for any application.
