AUSA’s 4×4 forklift range offers plenty of options

 AUSA’s 4×4 forklift range offers a variety of versatile, compact and powerful models with features to suit any application.

Ideal for the toughest and steepest terrain, AUSA forklifts are engineered to be highly maneuverable with a tight turning radius and reduced size — all without sacrificing lifting capacity or compromising safety.

Three of the most popular models in AUSA’s line of rough-terrain forklifts are the C251H, C351H and C501H. All three models feature a maximum lifting height of 5.5m with lifting capacities ranging from 2268kg to 4990kg.

The AUSA C351H forklift offers a variety of features engineered to make quick work of heavy jobs. Designed with operator comfort and safety in mind, these durable and reliable machines are at the forefront of thoughtful design.

The C351H features 360° visibility from the cab, which provides a 30 per cent increase in visibility of the surrounding area over the previous model. This model also offers rugged 4×4 capabilities, a 3500kg payload to 500mm, and a comfortable hydrostatic transmission. The on-board digital screen next to the steering wheel displays speed, temperature, alarms, sensors and overall status of the machine, and operators can interact with the display using the joystick control to run diagnostics.

The EcoMode system automatically controls the engine’s RPM to offer maximum power with the lowest consumption and emissions. AUSA’s Hill Holder system enables the forklift to remain fully stationary on any slope when the operator’s foot is removed from the accelerator.

Additional specifications include a total weight of 5416kg, a maximum lift height of 5450mm, a Kubota model V2403-M Stage IIIA – EPA Tier 3 engine and a maximum speed of 21kph. The engine provides 36kW of power and a noise level of 104 dB(A). With a maximum gradient of 30 per cent and 4×4 FullGrip® traction, this rugged machine is ideal for uneven or unpaved surfaces.
