The GTS20-33 series from CLARK marks a further highlight in the reliable, durable and powerful range of forklift by CLARK. Lower operating and maintenance costs combined with a well-designed and ergonomic operators compartment are what makes this forklift truly unique. The sturdy “Built to Last” upright and a robust construction with no thin metal or plastic components means these forklifts are suitable for use under even the toughest conditions.

Driver‘s Compartment

The driver accesses his ergonomically designed compartment via a large, low positioned perforated non-slip metal step. A grab handle on the drivers side of entry makes it easy to climb up and down. A full width rubber floor covering in the footwell prevents slippage.
The adjustable steering column with spoke steering wheel and an easy-to adjust, yet comfortable CLARK seat together with impressive leg room allow perfect adaptation to any driver. Automotive style foot pedals and fully directional hood mounted control levers with international symbols avoid confusion for any operator. The operating data is displayed in real-time on the clear display. A low front cowl and ingenious narrow profile arrangement of the chains and hoses on the upright ensure a wide field of vision for the driver. The lever-style hand brake is easliy applied in the same way as a car.

Engine, Transmission

The CLARK GTS20-33 forklifts with either a LPG or diesel powered engine, produce excellent acceleration and fast driving performance. Both engine versions are connected to a split transmission to reduce vibration & noise.
The GTS diesel powered unit is available either with the durable Yanmar engine (GTS20/25/30 only) or with the ISUZU (46 kW) engine. Both of these diesel engines are easy to service have low running and service costs and fully comply with EU directives of exhaust emissions.
The Yanmar (4TNE94L) engine (34,3kW) – meets all EU exhaust gas emission Stage IIIA regulations. The ISUZU 4LE2X) engine (46kW)-meets all EU exhaust gas emission Stage IIIB regulations. The ISUZU diesel engine uses a DOC catalyst to reduce exhaust gas emissions without the having to use a regeneration process which reduces downtimes and service costs. The exhaust gas after treatment is carried out during the truck operation. Alternative systems such as DPF (Diesel- Particle-Filter) systems require a regeneration process, which means truck downtime and higher service costs.
The GTS20-33 LPG version uses a Mitsubishi 4G64 with 2,4 litre engine and PSI (Power Systems Incorporated) fuel-system. With 51.6 kW power available it is more than an alternative to Diesel powered forklifts.

Brake system

Wet disc service brakes and an independent wet disc parking brake give a reliable high level of safety. With power assisted service brakes ensures less driver fatigue, so that operations can be carried out without driver stresses and fully focus on the job in hand. A stress free comfortable operator, will always work at their peak bringing you optimum productivity during a shift.

Steering system

The hydrostatic power steering eliminates steering Kick-Back ,makes steering easy and reaches full lock with just a few turns of the steering wheel. The steering axle has pivotal bearings mounted in rubber steel elements. The spherical bearing mounted short tie rods are adjustment free and guarantee precise and continuous driving in a straight line. The double acting steer cylinder ensures precise and direct steering.

Hydraulic system

A full-flow reverse filter, filters the oil to the tank at each reverse flow. Rough particles are filtered directly via a suction filter, thereby preventing them from entering the oil circuit, ensuring a long service life for all hydraulic components. A high-capacity pump provides adequate oil supply for the upright and the hydrostatic steering. A priority distributor ensures steering priority in all conditions. Load handling is controlled via a load sensitive-response and precise control valve. A safety valve provides extra safety and prevents an uncontrolled lowering of the load at all times.


The clear-view uprights are available in Standard, Hilo and Triplex versions(only GTS20-30). The heavy duty interlocked narrow profiles provide high strength even under the heaviest load. Adjustable sealed canted (Angled) rollers minimize deflection particularly when handling off-set loads. The tilt cylinders are mounted in spherical bearings. This consequently extends the service life of the complete cylinder by preventing premature leaks due to cylinder rod deflection. An integral tilt-lock valve prevents unintentional tilting of the upright when the power is off. The heavy duty tapered forged forks with hook mounting are adjustable and locked by individual pins. An hydraulic dampening system reduces impacts and vibrations during the transition between the individual lifting sections in raising and lowering, thus protecting the products and extending service life. The sturdy 6-roller fork carriage with adjustable side thrust rollers enhances the durability of this design, preventing carriage “Jamming” when handling off-set loads.
