The Linde H14 - H20 EVO IC trucks

IC-Trucks H14 – H20 EVO

Compact and Robust Endurance Runner

Maximum working capacity at low service costs

The Linde H14 – H20 EVO IC trucks can go the distance even in the toughest conditions, thanks to reduced emissions in indoor as well as outdoor areas. The combination of the hydrostatic direct drive, robust engines, and the Linde Load Control facilitates both rapid and precise operation and exceptional handling performance. At the same time, service costs remain low, as the direct drive operates without a transmission, clutch, or drum brakes, meaning it is totally maintenance-free. Choose from a range of cost-effective diesel, propellant gas, and natural gas engines: the propellant versions generate particularly low emissions levels.



The Linde Protector Frame protects the driver: the cab roof and frame form a spacious, enclosed protection zone, while the driver retains perfect all-round vision of the load and their working environment thanks to the slim lifting mast profile. It is the Linde trucks' overhead tilt cylinders that make such a design possible. Further safety is ensured by the Linde Curve Assist: the system reduces speed on bends, thereby reducing the risk of the forklift tipping.

  • Robust overhead guard
  • Optimal vision thanks to slim mast profile
  • Reduced speed around bends
  • Kickback-free hydraulic steering


The driver benefits from a generously-sized driver's cab with plenty of leg room. A comfortable seat, ergonomic operating concept with dual pedal control, Linde Load Control, and good visibility of the surroundings are all vital if low-fatigue work is to be achieved. The driver can control all mast and lifting movements precisely and intuitively using only their fingers, while their arm relaxes on the armrest. What's more, the mast and axles are decoupled from the chassis thanks to rubber bearings, meaning only a minimum of vibrations and shocks are felt by the driver.

  • Spacious cab with ample leg room
  • Hydraulic seat suspension
  • Ergonomic operating concept with Linde Load Control
  • Vibration-decoupled driver's workspace


The hydrostatic direct drive ensures delicate, smooth, and precise movement, aided by robust diesel, propellant gas, and natural gas engines, that provide high levels of torque at minimal fuel consumption. Last but not least, all functions of the mast can be controlled right down to the last millimeter thanks to Linde Load Control This allows for significant productivity gains in the transporting and warehousing of loads.

  • Hydrostatic drive for precise movement
  • High torque engines
  • Precise mast movements with Linde Load Control


Linde IC trucks boast extremely long maintenance intervals, with the first check only carried out after 1000 operating hours have been clocked up. After 3,000 operating hours, service technicians check the tilt cylinder and suspension elements, and replace the ventilation, pressure, and suction filters. The hydraulic oil only needs to be changed after 6000 hours. – These long intervals are made possible thanks to a number of design details, including new high-performance filters, the maintenance-free drive axle, and the bearing of the tilt cylinder. Plus, the hydraulic direct drive is also maintenance-free.

  • Long maintenance intervals
  • Maintenance-free hydrostatic drive
  • Easily accessible maintenance components
  • CAN bus diagnosis system

Optional Equipment

One-pedal control with manual gear change

Linde forklifts can also be equipped with single-pedal control. The driving direction switch is conveniently positioned in the armrest, just in front of the Linde Load Control joystick.

The display of the Linde Safety Pilot shows the load weight, the corresponding maximum lifting height, the tilt angle, and the load's center of gravity.

Linde Safety Pilot

The Linde Safety Pilot (LSP) provides the driver with a wide range of functions that make working with a Linde truck even safer and more efficient.

Linde Bluespot


The Linde BlueSpot™ Enhances safety during operation as the LED spot makes the forklift truck noiselessly visible.

Advanced comfort seats

Lumbar supports, heated seats, active seat ventilation, air suspension, and various adjustment functions are all available.

Air Conditioning

The powerful air conditioning system with integrated heating and pollen filter guarantees a comfortable working environment in the cab all year round, while also preventing windows from fogging up.
