CASE 586H Rough Terrain Forklift

The CASE, 586H Rough Terrain Forklift, is a robust and versatile solution tailored to any construction site’s challenges. Designed to handle a wide range of materials, from pallets to pipes, this forklift ensures operations are conducted with unparalleled smoothness, ease, and speed.

CASE 586H Features

The 586H is equipped with user-friendly controls, including a push-button parking brake and an eye-level Advanced Instrument Cluster (AIC), enhancing the operator’s experience. The optional deluxe suspension seat and spacious operating platform further ensure maximum comfort and ease of use during long hours of operation. For environments with low clearance, the 586H features an innovative free lift mast option. This allows operators to elevate forks up to five feet without extending the mast, minimizing the overall travel height and facilitating operation in restricted spaces.

Productivity Features:

  • High-Performance Lift Capabilities: The CASE 586H, along with the 588H model, boasts industry-leading lift speeds and reliable lift capacities, significantly boosting productivity and efficiency on site.
  • Versatile Terrain Compatibility: These models come with an optional four-wheel drive and a standard differential lock, ensuring smooth operation across various terrains. The 60° mast tilt and optional load control maximize travel capabilities and load stability.
  • Enhanced Maneuverability: The 588H model, in particular, offers a zero-tail swing design for operating in tight spaces, ensuring that if the rear tires clear an obstacle, the rear of the machine will too.

Fuel Efficiency:

Equipped with a 74 horsepower, 3.4 liter FPT engine, these forklifts incorporate a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) for a Tier 4 Final solution, achieving at least a 5% improvement in fuel efficiency compared to previous models. This, combined with faster response times, ensures environmental compliance without sacrificing performance.

Comfort and Visibility:

The CASE 586H excels in operator comfort and visibility. Its dual-mast design eliminates the need for a third mast, offering unmatched front and rear visibility. The narrow operating console and low-profile hood further enhance the operator’s ability to securely maneuver materials. The large operating platform provides ample space, with the option to add a deluxe suspension seat and load control for a comfortable ride across all terrains.


Maintenance is straightforward with the 586H. Features such as tool-free swing-out doors, spin-on filters, ground-level site gauges, and grouped service points allow for quick and easy daily maintenance. Axle servicing is simplified, requiring no complete disassembly, ensuring your machine remains in peak condition with minimal downtime.

The CASE 586H Rough Terrain Forklift is more than just equipment; it’s a comprehensive solution designed to tackle the most demanding tasks on any construction site. With its blend of productivity, efficiency, comfort, and ease of maintenance, the 586H sets a new standard for what operators can expect from a rough terrain forklift.

CASE 586H Standard Equipment

Engine Specifications:

  • Powerful Performance: At the heart of the 586H lies an FPT 3.4 L Diesel engine designed for robust power and efficiency. The engine features Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst to meet environmental standards without sacrificing performance.
  •  Durable and Reliable: A full-flow engine oil filter ensures enhanced engine protection and an air intake is optimized with a replaceable dry-type air cleaner with a radial seal. A radiator with a de-aeration bottle and antifreeze rated to -34°F (-37°C) guarantees operation in extreme conditions.
  •  User-Friendly Features: The forklift includes convenience options such as a foot throttle, self-adjusting belt, insulated Crankcase Ventilation (CCV) hose, glow plugs, and a block heater for cold starts. Maintenance and emergency readiness are facilitated by a pre-cleaner, master disconnect switch, and remote jump-start terminals for the battery.

Mast Capabilities:

  • Versatile Lifting Options: The 586H offers two standard mast options—a 15-ft mast capable of lifting 1,863 lb and a 22-ft mast with a 2,608 lb lifting capacity, ensuring versatility across various applications.

Hydraulics and Drivetrain:

  • Robust Hydraulics: A heavy-duty hydraulic oil cooler and a 7-micron spin-on oil filter maintain the hydraulic system’s efficiency and reliability.
  •  Advanced Drivetrain: Equipped with a front axle suitable for 2/4WD and heavy-duty outboard planetary drive and a rear axle designed for both 2WD and 4WD options, the 586H ensures optimal traction and maneuverability. The 4F-4R Power Shuttle Synchromesh Transmission, combined with a torque converter, electric 4WD control, and electric differential lock control, enhances the driving experience.

Additional Features:

  • Convenience and Safety: The forklift is designed with operator convenience and safety in mind. It features a lockable storage compartment, a swing-out side panel for engine access, and a comprehensive light package for visibility.
  •  Operator Environment: A ROPS/FOPS certified protective canopy, wide walk-through platform, and vinyl seat with a 3-inch seat belt ensure operator comfort and safety. Molded front fenders and rearview mirrors enhance visibility, while a suite of gauges and warning lights keep the operator informed.

The CASE 586H Rough Terrain Forklift is your go-to solution for handling materials under challenging conditions. Its powerful performance, operational versatility, and ease of use make it an invaluable asset to any construction or industrial project.

CASE 586H Optional Equipment
