H40 - H50 EVO Series 394 Engine Forklift

A stable pace setter


Permanent peak performance under tough conditions

The quality of the H40 – H50 IC trucks rings true especially in long and challenging applications. Powerful engines, a hydrostatic direct drive, and the Linde Load Control lift mast control system all ensure consistently high operational performance.

At the same time, the truck rarely needs to be taken off duty for servicing, as the bearings of the axles and tilt cylinders do not require maintenance. The same applies to the robust direct drive that operates without a transmission or drum brakes. Enhanced safety is assured thanks to the Linde Protector Frame, which sees the roof and frame form a single robust unit.


  • The Linde Protector Frame provides outstanding protection for the operator, surrounding them with a closed unit formed from the frame and roof.
  • Operator retains good all-round visibility thanks to the slim profile of the lift mast and the overhead tilt cylinders which remain out of view.
  • Linde Curve Assist prevents the truck moving at an excessive speed around bends.
  • Brakes without a control delay and kickback-free steering assist the driver in better controlling the forklift.
  • The impressive residual capacity guarantees excellent safety even when bearing heavy loads.
  • 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.

The design, operation, and technology of the H40 – H50 IC trucks are all built around the ergonomic requirements for the operator's protection.

  • Spacious cab with plenty of legroom and good all-round visibility.
  • All display gauges and switches within reach.
  • Rubber bearing decoupled drive axles reduce vibrations during travel.
  • Linde Load Control ensures the operator can control all of the lift mast functions with their fingertips, alleviating pressure on their back.
  • Dual pedal control enables fast direction changes as well as precise, relaxed and intuitive operation.

The Linde H40 – H50 IC trucks provide high performance, low exhaust emissions and smooth movement.

  • Modern high-torque diesel, propellant gas, and natural gas engines.
  • 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.
  • Linde Load Control improves the pace of handling, as the operator can effortlessly control all truck and mast movements down to the very last millimetre.
  • The lifting hydraulic system features a variable replacement pump that provides the power required for high lifting speeds, thereby reducing engine revolutions, fuel consumption, and wear.

The Linde H40 – H50 IC trucks are rarely out of action thanks to their long maintenance intervals.

  • First oil change is only necessary after 1000 operating hours and first hydraulic oil change after 6000 operating hours which means reductions to oil and spare parts costs.
  • Many of the moving part contact points, such as the axial rotation or the mast and tilt cylinder bearing, require no checks at all.
  • The hydrostatic drive ensures a long lifetime of the internal components, as they are sealed and maintenance free, plus it stops tyres from spinning which results in less tyre wear.
