Cummins QSB4.5--C110 tier certified, electronic turbocharged, charge air after cooled (air to air) diesel, 4-cylinder diesel engine has 275 cu-in. (4.5 L) displacement. 4.21-in. (107 mm) bore x 4.88-in. (124 mm) stroke. Rated power of 110 (82 kW) horsepower at 2200 RPM. Maximum power of 115 horsepower (86 kW) at 2000 rpm. Peak torque 360 ft-lbs. (488 N-m) at 1500rpm. (SAE J1995 Conditions). Standard features are electronic diagnostic and maintenance monitor, fuel/water separator and engine/transmission protection systems, fuel economy, and reduced emissions. Emission certification: US EPA Tier III, Carb Tier III, EU Stage III. The fuel tank capacity is 30.5 gallons (115 L).

Air Cleaner

The dry type air cleaner has a safety element, restriction indicator, and muffler with stack guard.

Cooling System

The conventional top/bottom tank radiator has wide fin spacing to reduce dirt build up and provide optimum engine cooling. Cooling includes engine charge air cooler, engine coolant air cooler, transmission oil air cooler, and a separate wet disc and hydraulic oil air cooler. Each can be serviced separately.

Electrical, Instrumentation, and Accessories

The one-piece instrument panel is pre-wired to accommodate heavyduty accessories. All wiring is color and number coded. The unit has a 12-volt electrical system with circuit breakers. Standard equipment includes a key-type anti-restart ignition switch system, 130-amp alternator, heavy-duty battery, electric fuel gauge, lighted display, electric horn, keyswitch-actuated amber strobe light, forward alarm, and a reverse-actuated warning horn. Display indicates functions for seat belt, engine oil pressure, parking brake, battery indicator, and Tier III engine electronic diagnostic light package. The unit has tilt steering and rear view mirrors. All machine controls are Taylor Integrated Control Systems (TICS) using J1939 CANbus technology. This allows controllers and sensors to communicate with minimal wiring between the components. I/O modules are used to eliminate electromechanical relay devices and add reliability to the machine control system. J1939 CANbus technology allows all machine data to be accessed through the main color display located in the cab. This display shows engine data along with warnings, and man/ machine interface data. The display allows service personnel to access data needed during troubleshooting (such as sensor status and controller outputs). Machine functions can be tuned through the main display in the cab. Tuning functions are password protected to prevent operator access.


The three-speed, fully reversing, modulated powershift transmission has inching, electric roll shift control, and a separate air-to-oil cooler. The filler pipe dipstick and large, heavy-duty oil filter are easily accessible. Automatic powershift (standard).

Drive Axle

The bolted heavy-duty planetary drive axle utilizes a hypoid ring gear and pinion. Positive rim mountings.

Steer Axle

The steer axle is a single hydraulic cylinder design with heavy-duty links

from the cylinder ram directly to tapered roller



Brake System

The internal force cooled, hydraulic actuated, wet disc, service brakes (and the hydraulic oil) are cooled by an air to oil cooler separate from the transmission cooler. The left pedal combines actuation of service brakes and transmission inching; the right pedal actuates the service brakes only. The parking brake control is mounted on the instrument panel.

Power Steering

The hydrostatic, steer-on-demand steering system provides constant response at all engine speeds.


The all-welded frame has an integral counterweight. The hood slides on rollers. The center mount operator base features an overhead guard with sky-view window, dome light, vinyl covered suspension seat with single arm rest, orange seat belt and OPS switch. Operator base color black only. The operator base can be manually tilted over for service access.

Hydraulic System

The high capacity hydraulic tank has a spin-on tank breather, wire mesh strainers, and full flow 10-micron return line filters, with a replaceable element in the tank. Tank refill capacity is 25 gallons (95 L). The hydraulic system utilizes a gear type pump and three-section control valve, standard lift and tilt with a single accessory valve. A tilt lock valve reduces mast drift and torsional stress. The lift cylinders have self-adjusting packing. The standard joystick control lever is armrest mounted with multiple adjustments for operator comfort.

Mast, Carriage, and Rollers

The 11-ft. (3.4 m) ULTRA-VU mast provides outstanding forward vision through the mast assembly. Two double-acting lift cylinders are located behind the mast beams. Tilt cylinders are double-acting with anti-cavitation feature. Lift and tilt cylinder rods are chrome plated and have self-adjusting packing. Tilt cylinders have adjustable ears. Lift chains are located between mast rails and are visible. The 60-in. (1,524 mm) C type carriage has high strength-to-weight ratio; fully adjustable from 60-in. (1,524 mm) outside to 2-in. (51 mm) inside forks. The mast and carriage main rollers are common and use greasable, tapered, roller bearings. Chain rollers use sealed ball bearings. Adjustable side bearings compensate for wear.


The pin-mounted forks are hammer forged from heat treated steel with increased thickness in critical heel sections. Size: 2.5-in. x 6-in. x 48-in. (64 mm x 152 mm x 1,219 mm). This vehicle is certified to meet the applicable design and performance criteria required for Powered Industrial Trucks in OSHA Safety and Health Standards, Title 29 CFR. Part 1910.178, and the applicable design and performance requirements in ANSI B56.1 that were in effect at the time of manufacture. These standards also apply to the user and should be adhered to while operating this vehicle. All specifications are subject to change without notice. Some operating data may be affected by the condition of the operating area. If these specifications are critical,
