PT40 Forklift

The PT40 Precision Rigger is the Next Generation Industrial Telehandler Forklift. Designed specifically to meet the needs of the experts in the machinery moving and rigging industry, its compact size and impressive capabilities also make it an excellent choice for moving heavy loads in manufacturing and heavy industrial applications. The PT40 has an impressive lift capability of 20 tons to a height of 20 feet.

  • Engine: GM 3.0L 91hp at 3000rpm
  • Transmission: Hydrostatic, 0-6mph infinitely variable
  • Hydraulic System: Load sensing, pressure compensated
  • Hyd. Filtration: 3-micron synthetic element
  • Electrical: Sealed IP66 Minimum
  • Tires: 28x10x22, front duals, rear singles
  • Gradeability: 24% with 40,000 pound load
  • Tractive Effort: 20,000 pounds

All PT40 drive and lift functions can be controlled via a wireless transmitter, allowing a single operator to observe the entire work environment without being confined to the operator’s station.

All gauges and load position information are displayed on the monitor, which also allows access to diagnostic tools on all hardware components.

  • 91 hp at 3000 rpm
  • 166 ft lbs at 1400 rpm
  • Heavy-duty cast iron block and head
  • Spin-on fuel filter
  • Dual element intake air filtration

The General Motors 3.0L four-cylinder engine runs on both gasoline and propane. By generating maximum torque at much lower speeds than the automotive engines, the PT40 operates at lower RPM, creating a quieter, safer working environment. A temperature-activated, variable speed cooling fan also minimizes noise while maximizing cooling. There are two engine speed control modes: a foot treadle for traveling, and a dash-mounted control for load handling.

The Sauer hydrostatic drive is controlled by an adjustable foot treadle for variable 0-6 mph, forward or reverse travel. The large hydrostatic pump and deep-reduction planetary wheel hubs generate 20,000 pounds of tractive effort and will propel a 40,000-pound load up a 24% grade.

At the heart of the PT40 is its intelligent hydraulic system. The pump is load-sensing and pressure-compensating with the ability to limit horsepower accordingly. This allows higher pump flows at lower pressure, or conversely, higher pressures without stalling the engine. The control valves are custom manifolds with industry standard cartridge valves to greatly minimize hoses, adapters, leaks, and clutter. All the working elements of the valves are externally mounted on the manifolds, so there should never be the need to remove the entire valve for diagnosis or repair. And because cleaner oil is always better, the PT40 uses a 3-micron return filter and a pressurized reservoir to minimize outside air and moisture from entering the system.

CANbus networking greatly reduces the number of wires required to run and monitor functions. All electrical components and connectors are fully sealed against dirt and moisture.

Sun counterbalance valves are built into the cylinders for maximum safety. Steel hydraulic tubes are welded to the cylinder ports. Cylinder mounting pins are chrome-plated and feature redundant retainers for added safety.

Smooth and durable tapered roller bearings on wheels and king pins ensure long service life. Spherical ball joints on steer linkages are adjustable to obtain a perfect wheel alignment.

Oversized solid tires are made from soft polyurethane for greater compression, lower ground pressure, and superior traction. Front duals and rear singles roll smoothly over floor transitions under a load.

Two outer counterweights each weigh 4,350 pounds; the central counterweight weighs 3,200 pounds. Removing all three counterweights results in a 25,000-pound empty weight with a 20,000-pound capacity (24″ load center).

At Landoll Corporation our mission is to provide unsurpassed quality and workmanship on every Precision Telehandler PT40 we build. We want the PT40 to be the finest machine in your fleet.
