CLARK Material Handling Company Launches the New S40 IC Pneumatic Forklift

CLARK Material Handling Company, a top-ten global manufacturer of forklift trucks and spare parts, has launched the S40-60 IC, a pneumatic forklift truck. Built with capacities of 8,000 to 12,000 pounds, with a true 12,000-pound capacity, this latest addition to the S-SERIES line has many of the same features that customers expect from the S-SERIES family while also adding to the "Built to Last" promise of all CLARK trucks. 

"The introduction of the S40 to the market and to the CLARK lineup builds on the CLARK promise to create lift trucks that are safe, durable, and operator focused. The continued expansion of the S-SERIES lineup sends a clear message to our customers—we are committed to making products that are Smart, Strong, and Safe," commented Brandon Bullard, director of sales and marketing at CLARK. 

Designed from the ground up to advance the current offering of the C40-55, key safety features on the new S40 include an optimal center of gravity for increased stability, a self-activating parking brake, and increased operator visibility through the mast. 

Additional safety features for this lift truck include:

  • An integrated back-up camera.
  • LED lights.
  • An all-weather cab.
  • Optional speed limit control. 

The S40 also comes equipped with several smart features, including an interactive dash display with audible and visual warnings and an engine protection system designed to protect against overheating. Selectable performance modes on the forklift's LPG engine allow technicians to adjust the unit's operation to suit their application. 

These features combine with a rugged, durable frame, a balanced LPG or Diesel engine for reduced noise and vibration in the operator compartment along with low-maintenance wet disc brakes. 

This S40 and its features are backed by the two-year CLARK Protection Plan or 4,000 hours Carriageto-Counterweight warranty coverage, plus an additional 12 months or 2,000-hour Powertrain Protection.
