H100 - H180 Series 1401 Engine Forklift

The Agile Heavyweight


Handle heavy loads precisely and swiftly

The H100 – H180 internal combustion diesel forklift truck can transport even the heaviest of loads precisely, swiftly, and cost-effectively, securing a competitive advantage in terms of handling performance.

All this is made possible by Linde's hydrostatic drive, which allows heavy trucks to be moved with millimeter precision. The driver can quickly and smoothly shift between backward and forward movement, while modern diesel engines guarantee high torque and low fuel consumption.


  • Large glass panes and the curved windscreen offer the operator exceptional visibility and the same is true to the rear, as the visibility-optimised counterbalance has drastically reduced the blind spot behind the truck.
  • Operator's cab is positioned exactly in the middle facing forward.
  • Seat monitoring locks out the operational and driving hydraulics when the operator is not sitting in the truck.
  • When the heavy truck reverses, a clear (85 dB) signal sounds, alerting other trucks and pedestrians.
  • The hydrostatic drive automatically brakes the truck to a standstill when the accelerator pedal is released, meaning there's minimal to no roll back, even on slopes — it also applies the park brake automatically when the engine isn't running.

When developing this heavy load truck, our goal was to create an ergonomic workspace.

  • The operator's cab is decoupled from the chassis and engine by numerous rubber bearings, meaning the operator feels fewer vibrations and shocks.
  • Features such as the height-adjustable armrests and steering column, and the adjustable seat with hydraulic suspension, all work to ensure an ergonomic workspace.
  • The Linde dual pedal control alleviates the operator's day-to-day work, requiring only gentle pedal movements, preventing fatigue.

Power on demand is the underlying principle of the H100 – H180 D IC trucks.

  • The hydrostatic drive enables smooth and safe transitions when changing direction at any speed, coupled with a reduction in mechanical components (i.e no clutch, torque converter, differential or conventional service breaks) leads to proven durability and reliability even in the toughest of applications.
  • Engine speed is regulated according to the amount of power required meaning that the engine is always running in the most efficient range, thereby saving fuel.
  • Linde Load Control enables precise and sensitive load handling with the truck automatically adjusting engine/motor speed depending on load weight and lift speed requirements, thus saving energy as it avoids excessive engine/motor speed.

  • Side-mounted service box allows for rapid maintenance work, affording the mechanic direct access to various filters, batteries, the windscreen washer fluid tank, and diagnostic connector.
  • The operator's cab can also be tilted laterally using an electro-hydraulic pump in order to carry out works in the engine compartment.
  • The hydrostatic drive ensures a long lifetime of the internal components as they are sealed and maintenance free, and as it operates without a transmission, clutch, differential or drum brakes it significantly reduces servicing costs — plus it stops tyres from spinning which results in less tyre wear.
