Reduced Exhaust Gas Particulate Matter
It is important to note that Komatsu’s SAA4D95LE-6 engine meets the U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final standard. This means that it has upgraded functions when compared to Tier 4 Interim level models. For example, the new diesel engine can reduce exhaust gas particulate matter (PM) by over 90 percent.
Hydro-Static Transmission with Wet Disc Brakes
In the FH-2 forklift series, the brake discs are submerged in oil inside the transmission assembly. When the brakes are applied, the discs come together and any oil between the pads is squeezed off. This means that there is no loss of friction that is central to the braking system. The advantage of this kind of braking system over the dry one is that the oil can effectively cools down the brake discs. This translates to not just greater efficacy in braking power, but the pads last far longer than the traditional ones. The cooling effect of the oil also reduces wear and tear caused by heat. This makes the Tier 4 Final Compliant FH-2 Forklift series more economical to run than earlier models, translating into higher margins for your operations.
