The quality of the H40 – H50 IC trucks really comes to the fore in especially 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 only rarely needs to be taken off duty for servicing, as the bearings of the axles and tilt cylinders, for example, 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, among other things, to the Linde Protector Frame, that sees the roof and frame form a single robust unit.
