S6.0-7.0FT Diesel and LPG Forklift


A compact, heavy duty fork lift for intensive indoor and outdoor use

Ideal for heavy duty indoor applications such as paper roll storage, S6.0-7.0FT forklift users can gain a high lift capacity truck with an even more compact frame and shorter wheelbase. The 7 tonne model has an overall length of just 4130mm, similar to most 4 tonne trucks giving unrivalled capacity where size is critical.

Fortens or Fortens Advance configurations with either 3.3L Diesel or 4.3L LPG engines are available with 2-speed Electronic Powershift or 3-speed DuraMatch™ transmissions to suit the demands of the most intense applications.

Hyster® Fortens® S6.0-7.0FT series Compact Diesel and LPG Counterbalanced Fork Lift Truck Highlights:

  • The robust, compact chassis design and high strength mast design optimises capacity retention at high lifts with excellent visibility and rigidity. Suits all types of front end attachment

    • The Fortens models features a 2-speed (2F/2R) Electronic Powershift Transmission
