  • Three Function design allows simultaneous operation of travel, lift/lower and one other hydraulic function.
  • Integrated Mini-Thumb stick that controls tilt and sideshift plus auxiliary functions.
  • As part of the Productivity Enhancement Package, CLARK offers two-way fork leveling and controlled tilt above free lift
  • 60-degree operator compartment and controls from centerline. This offers the widest range of flexibility and visual confirmation.
  • Even with a low OHG height of 86.5” there is ample headroom for the operator.
  • Low effort steering tiller
Overhead Guard

Motor and Electrical System
  • Proven drive axle with spiral-bevel and helical gear sets for quiet operation.
  • Drive axle has over 20 million proven field hours
  • External encoder bearing for ease of maintenance
  • All motors are fully enclosed so dust and moisture is not an issue
  • Same motor in UL “E” and “EE” models
  • All motors are equipped with a thermistor which constantly monitors temperature. Should the temperature approach the thermal limit, the control cuts back current. Pump system has proportional cut-back and traction is step function. Once motor temperature decreases, full power is automatically restored
  • High travel speeds both loaded and unloaded.
  • Top speed for ESX 12-20 set at 7.3 mph loaded and unloaded
  • Ramp start Feature- Control boosts voltage to motor producing higher starting torque. This allows operator to start loaded truck on ramp without rollback.
  • Anti-Roll Away Feature – If left unattended with the parking brake not set, but the key on, truck will slowly (about 1 mph) descend ramp regardless of directional lever position or truck orientation
  • Three forms of regenerative braking are standard. This allows for longer brake life.
  • Accurate speed control via encoder feedback. You can set different limits for forward and reverse
  • Steer potentiometer relays steer tire position to control. This control regulates speed and direction of both motors letting the truck turn a perfect circle.
  • 2-wheel drive (versus only one). This provides added traction, especially on wet or uneven surfaces
  • Low Noise Operation. The pump motor spins at 500 RPM to reduce steering noise
  • Use “silent” pump to further reduce steering/lift noise
