X Series I.C. Pneumatic Tire Forklift
83,000-105,000lbs load capacity

The X Series Pneumatic Forklift, with a 83,000- 105,000lb load capacity, improves on the technology that Hangcha has developed since 1956.  When designing this forklift, Hangcha first looked at the features that made the previous version reliable.  The engineers then took those features and upgraded them to be even more durable.  The structural components, such as the frame and mast, were also redesigned and upgraded using CAE and rigorous testing. The forklift was then outfitted with the latest CANBUS architecture to allow the different components to communicate efficiently with each other. The central controller allows for simplified operations, fault alarms, the forklift’s status, and diagnostics to all be displayed to the operator. Together, the redesign of these different components has allowed for the new X Series Pneumatic Forklift to become more durable, efficient, and comfortable.


The fully enclosed, floating cabin has a curved front window and redesigned sides to increase visibility. The cabin doors are all glass to increase visibility beside the forklift. The exterior design of the whole vehicle is at the forefront of the development of forklift design. While sturdy and elegant in appearance, the vehicle remains practical and rugged. The integrated interior design is simple and comfortable to improve productivity and keep the operator focused.

The X Series Pneumatic Forklift was designed with performance in mind. The forklift features a hydraulic load-sensing system. This feature decreases engine load, emissions, and energy consumption. In addition, the forklift features a newly designed cab, wet disc brake drive axle, hydraulic adjustable forks, LCD instrument display, and highly efficient LED lights as a part of the standard configuration.

The new floating cabin is designed to promote comfort and safety for the operator. The cab offers a waterproof and dustproof design to keep the operator out of the elements. The cab also designed to reduce the noise coming in the cabin. The air conditioner has been redesigned to enable better performance and more uniform cabin cooling. The interior features molded components to provide the operator with a more comfortable and ergonomic operating environment. The cab also features a new integral frame made up of steel to increase strength and safety. Finally, the cab and the forklift’s profile have been optimized to increase visibility and enable the operator to see all around the truck.

The ergonomic integral joystick enables accurate control of the forklift. The optimized hydraulic braking system enables smooth, easy-to-control, braking. The suspension seat and adjustable armrest allow for the operator to find their ideal driving position. Together all of these features create a more comfortable operating experience for the operator.

The newly designed LCD instrument display offers more comprehensive functions and more stable performance. It displays important information on the truck’s status as well as engine faults. The optional electric tilting cabin allows the cabin to be tilted without any tools. This allows for easy accessibility of major components and quick and easy maintenance. This design creates less downtime.

Hangcha uses the powerful Volvo TAD881VE diesel engine in our pneumatic tire forklifts. The Volvo engine is Tier 4F compliant. The engine uses common rail fuel systems, diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC), and diesel particulate filters (DPF) to meet Tier 4F compliance. This engine helps the Hangcha forklifts maximize their efficiency and reliability for the end-user.

The DANA TE-30 transmission provides stable, accurate, and reliable travel with its power-shifting feature.
