Five years and 8 000 hours – Linde H70D still going strong

Five years have passed since the Linde H70D were delivered to the PPC de Hoek site. During this time, the Linde H70D combined with its virtually maintenance-free direct hydrostatic drive which played a major part in the reduction of tyre wear, the original tyres only had to be replaced after 8 000hrs of use.

LindesLinde Material Handling’s virtually maintenance-free direct hydrostatic drive delivers seamless acceleration, reversing and precision load handling.

“In fact, there are very few others that can match Linde forklifts’ unique engine and transmission combination. Others have tried, but after 50 years of continual improvement, Linde engineers have elevated their hydrostatic drive system to a level of performance which puts it in a class of its own,” says Linde SA.

The cost efficiency of Linde forklifts is also enhanced by many features built into every model, including exceptional ergonomics which minimise operator fatigue and hence the risk of accidental damage and by durability.

“Linde is proud to be a supplier of PPC de Hoek and congratulate them on receiving their 4 x H70D 396 Series fork trucks.”
