I've worked on toyotas, tai lift, komatsu, hyster, nissan, taylor, etc., If I had my rathers, I'd go to komatsu but my boss wants to keep the fleet standardized even though he's a little miffed at the clark dealer these days. We are supposed to be getting a 5K sit down raymond electric demo to play with just not sure how weather-proofed it is as it will be used inside and out unloading trucks.

Joe D, I'd recommend getting other dealers in & Demo other brands. If you don't, what do you have to compare the Clark to? Also, I know that Mitsubishi & Cat are offering some very lucrative lease & warranty packages. Never hurts to keep an open mind.

I prefer to "test drive" a new lift before purchasing by giving it to an operator that will run the crap out of it. I need to replace an old CGP25 and inquired about a C30L demo with the new Hyundai and was told they won't be available til January 2011. Now I'm in a quandry....wait and test or go with an existing Mitsi powered Clark?

The Hyundai engine is not the same engine that Doosan is using in their truck. Doosan is running th 2.0L and Clark is running the 2.4L. Also, Clark is the only one running the Jupiter fuel system. As far as I know, Mitsubishi has no plans to build a tier 4 engine. I think this is a great move on Clark's part because of the increased HP and more torque. I'm sure they have have done their homework to justify the change. If you have a chance to drive a Clark with the new engine you may be surprised with the performance.

Joe D, not sure which fuel system. Not much info that I've run across on the Hyundia engines in the industrial application. I do know that Clark along w/ Doosan have tried to bring their pricing down to be competitive in the lower end market and hurt their reputation. When Clark went thru bankruptsey, they had to liqiudate a lot of their parts and this might be one way to start fresh w/ different engine.

Budman, hopefully it's just the Doosan brand. My boss has said the same about Clark (I've been saying it since day one) over the past 6 months but doesn't want to "mongrel" the fleet. Which on one hand it's good because that would add to my spare parts headache. Does those Doosans you spoke of have the Jupiter fuel system?

Good luck w/ Hyundai Engine. Customers of mine said that they'd never buy another Doosan that runs the same Engine. But I think they were disgusted with the overall Doosan product. Not much info on this engine in the industrial Fork Lift application

I asked the question of the sales mgr of a local dealer here and after the shock wore off he said he hadn't heard that but would check into it and let me know. It took about a week but he just called and confirmed that yes, they will start coming with Hyundai engines when present stock of mits are gone. Can't say I'm broken hearted! :-)

Wouldn't tier 4 be the main reason for the change?????

Does anyone know if the 4G63/4 is capable of reaching tier4?????

Hi Joe,
No the water pump is external belt drive and the Hyundai engine has a cam chain not belt.
It is 70HP and the Mitsi 4G64 is 51HP, I think in fact it has more HP and torque than any of the competitors.

I've got a fleet of Clarks here (thinking about replacing 2 of em as I type this) and have never worked on a hyundai. Is the water pump internal on the Hyundai like it is on the Mits? What other common issues are there on em?

I think it's a good move for Clark to differentiate them from the competition.....seems that everyone except Toyota & Hyster/Yale are going with the Nissan K21/K25 motor.

The reason for change is that Mitsubishi are stopping making the 4G63 and 4G64 engines. Doosan use the same Hyundai engine in Europe and I know a couple of Doosan dealers who say they are not much trouble.

1. Clark's brochures on their current website still show the Mitsunishi engine.
2. But it might make sense they (Clark ) will be changing as Mitsubish/Cat no longer uses a Mitsubishi engine in there gas/LPG 3-6500 units - they use the Nissan K21/25 engine.
