Our diesel forklift trucks offer the perfect combination of power and capacity. They can carry loads ranging from 1.6 to 5 tons, while ensuring rapid turnaround and the utmost efficiency in your warehouse or production facility.
The dynamic Series 3s and 4s forklifts are robust in every way: Unrivalled for manoeuvrability, whether making quick changes of direction, dynamic acceleration, rapid reversing or precise positioning - the modern drive technology guarantees maximum driving comfort and highest throughput.
If your operation involves a lot of outside driving, then we recommend our trucks with combustion engines - in diesel or LPG form. These offer reliable performance even in wet environments and on uneven surfaces. If you require more power for indoor applications, a combustion truck can still be an excellent choice.
Depending on the model, these powerhouses can handle loads weighing up to 5 tons. You also have the option of adding a comfortable driver’s module that can be rotated by 180 degrees. This makes it easier to manoeuvre in narrow aisles and with reverse travel. Handling is simple and the diesel forklift trucks can be refuelled in a matter of minutes.
The powerplants in our diesel trucks are extremely durable. These engines have been thoroughly tested in large-scale production in the automotive industry. They deliver high torque at low speeds, making them ideal for daily use in your warehouse or production facility. The combination of this modern engine technology and Jungheinrich’s own system software makes these trucks highly energy-efficient. They are characterised by outstanding fuel consumption and extremely low emission values: and noise levels.
VW Common Rail diesel engines as standard.
The Series 4 trucks have a choice of two engine power outputs and should be chosen according to the operation’s demands and lifting requirements, whether options such as air conditioning is needed.
New lever operating concept and comfort enhancements.
With the introduction of the new duoPILOT Jungheinrich now offers a choice of 3 lever options for counterbalanced trucks - soloPILOT, multiPILOT and duoPILOT. Together with the in-built operating modes which allow pre-set truck parameters to be established for accelerating/braking and mast hydraulics, precise control is a push-button away.
Other enhancements include the premium operator‘s compartment, featuring better ergonomics and high operator comfort. The compartment features a new steering column with memory-function, new armrest storage bin with integrated USB charging, and floating cab with an unobstructed glass roof for the best possible 360° visibility.
New compact mast for improved visibility.
Compact nesting of the profiles optimised hose and chain guidance, and two patented cut-outs in the crossbar mean that the field of vision is enlarged up to 85%. This improves driving and load visibility and ultimately safety for both driver and pedestrians.
With five operating programmes and a workstation that satisfies ergonomic and personal demands, working with these reliable forklift trucks is easy and convenient.
A key feature of this truck is the automatic parking brake that ensures no uncontrolled roll-back on ramps or inclines, even with the engine switched off. This allows for much faster, easier and safer working, including on uneven ground.
Excellent stability is engineered into the range, due to a combination of an extremely low inherent centre of gravity and a high pivot steer axle resulting in reduced oscillation. By design, lateral stability is actively improved for increased safety without additional electronics.
Increased visibility via the improved damping on the mast and tilt cylinders gives you far better handling safety.
Jungheinrich counterbalance trucks offer both powerful performance and genuine cost-effectiveness. They are extremely manoeuvrable and transport goods reliably, both indoors and outdoors.
They handle heavy loads of up to five tons with ease. Our latest generation of diesel forklift trucks, such as the DFG 425s/430s/435s will help you benefit from their inherent agility and operational refinements.

In spite of its low-emission engine, the diesel forklift truck can only be used indoors for a limited time.
7. How can I buy a diesel forklift from Jungheinrich?
On the Jungheinrich homepage, it is possible to buy, lease, or rent a diesel forklift truck.
8. What driving speeds can a diesel front loader reach?
Depending on the model, the forklift can reach speeds of between 17 and 21 km/h. The speed also depends on the transport load of the diesel forklift.
9. How long does a diesel forklift truck need to reach its maximum lifting height?
The lifting speed is between 0.48-0.6 m/s, depending on the load and model.
10. What is the lifting capacity of diesel forklift trucks?
Depending on the model, a diesel forklift truck can carry up to 2000 kg (DFG316/320) or 5000 kg (DFG540s-S50s).
11. Do Jungheinrich diesel forklift trucks meet the EURO 5 emission standards?
Jungheinrich diesel forklift trucks are equipped with low-emission engines. Thanks to a diesel particle filter and a diesel oxidation catalytic converter, the trucks comply with EURO 5 emission standards.
12. What is a hydrodynamic drive in diesel trucks?
With a hydrodynamic drive for diesel forklift trucks, the torque is transmitted to the drive axle using dynamic oil pressure. This allows for a higher degree of efficiency, making it possible to cover longer distances with lower fuel consumption.
13. What is a hydrostatic drive for diesel front loaders?
With a hydrostatic drive, power is transmitted via a closed system. This means that the diesel forklift truck can be manoeuvred carefully while, at the same time, having high power transmission capabilities.
14. How far can you get with one tank of fuel in a diesel forklift truck?
Diesel forklifts trucks from Jungheinrich are generally designed for 3-shift operations. However, depending on the intensity of use and transport load, the operating time can vary.
15. Are the diesel trucks controlled via a gear shift?
This differs depending on the drive solution. With hydrodynamic drives, diesel front stackers are equipped with an automatic transmission (torque converter). Diesel trucks with hydrostatic drives have a 1-speed gear shift.
16. What is the fuel consumption of a Jungheinrich diesel forklift truck?
The fuel consumption of the powerful Kubota engines is approx. 2 to 7 l/h, depending on the model.

Diesel forklifts with a hydrostatic drive provide the best driving dynamics and have infinitely adjustable power transmission. The fast acceleration, responsive brakes and accurate steering make the hydrostatic diesel forklift an efficient piece of equipment for reversing. With five working and driving programmes, the hydrostatic drive can also be adjusted depending on different operating conditions. These diesel forklifts are particularly low-maintenance since our hydrostatic drive works with just a few mechanical components. An example of this is the oil-immersed multi-disc parking brakes, which are installed as a low-maintenance closed system. Hydraulic oil filtering ensures a longer service life for all diesel forklift components . A design with a hydrodynamic drive is available for diesel forklifts deployed on longer routes.
While a forklift with a hydrostatic drive is perfect for reversing operation, the diesel forklift with a hydrodynamic drive works at maximum power, making it ideal for cargo transportation on medium and longer routes. The engine’s torque converter enables smooth start-up and optimum efficiency at medium to high speeds.
