The Linde® Automotive control series hydrostatic pump and motor drive is the perfect match to give you the most efficient machine possible. The hydrostatic system include a high quality pressure filter to increase  life expectancy.

Drive Axle

The Dana® drive with limited slip differential,  Wet Disc Brake; Park & Service Brake Hydraulic Controlled.


The wet disc brakes are hydraulically actuated. The parking brake is spring applied and electro-hydraulically released.


The one-piece all steel welded construction makes a very rugged and rigid chassis. Wide and low profile frame provides a stable machine. Exceptional maintenance and service access, due to extra-wide hinged type hoods and removable covers, as well as sensible layout of major components and service points.


The three-stage mast is standard. The use of Thrust Blocks made of high strength and low friction thermoplastic material in rotator increase the life cycle. These Thrust Blocks can sustain greater impacts than conventional expensive to maintain roller systems. Both lift chains are of multiple-leaf construction with convenient adjustment points. The hoses for rotator are mounted inside the mast rails for maximum protection.

  • Hydraulic lift cylinders

    Two 2-3/4″

  • Hydraulic rotator cylinder


  • Hydraulic tilt cylinders

    Two 3-1/2″


The 42-3/4″ wide high-capacity pin type carriage with rotator is standard. The 20-degree clockwise and 40-degree counterclockwise rotator uses the high strength and low friction Thrust Blocks.


The pin-type forks are made from high-grade treated steel. They are pin mounted to allow for variable fork spread. The standard forks are 72” long by 4-3/4” wide and 1-3/4” thick. (Optional 84″ length available)

Hydraulic System

One gear type pump directly mounted on the hydrostatic pump. In-tank suction strainer and easy to replace tank top high quality return filter ensure clean oil. The sectional control valve is easily accessible and is directly controlled. The sectional and direct link control valve system makes this system the most reliable system possible.

Steering System

Hydraulic system delivers constant oil flow to hydrostatic steering system for uniform steering response. The steering cylinder is a 3-1/2″. High strength link is connected directly to the steering spindles.


Front: 14.5 x 20 lug type; Rear: 12.00 x 16.5 lug type
