With fast lifting speeds, roading speeds of up to 24 mph (38.6 km/h), lifting capacities of up to 8,000 lbs and a slew of unique features that keep loads level and operators comfortable, the high-performance, Tier 4 Final 588H forklift truly does raise the bar. Without a disruptive third mast, our wide-channel, dual-mast design gives it unmatched visibility. We’ve also maintained a low-profile hood with our Tier 4 Final engine for a clear view behind the machine. Even at top lift heights, a perforated steel canopy gives operators clear vision without the neck-straining need to lean forward.
Ideal For:




The CASE 586H and 588H increase productivity and efficiency with industry-leading lift speed and dependable, high-performing lift capacities. These rough terrain forklifts are able to operate in a variety of terrains with the optional 4 four-wheel drive and standard differential lock. No need to worry about your load, CASE offers maximum travel capabilities with their 60° of mast tilt and optional load control. If operating in tight areas is a concern, the 588H features a narrow zero-tail swing design, meaning if the rear tires clear it, the rear of the machine will as well. CASE rough terrain forklifts feature an industry standard ITA class 3 carriage and forks allowing a wide range of aftermarket attachments.

Fuel Efficiency

These forklifts feature a simple, cost-effective Tier 4 Final solution. The 74 horsepower, 3.4 liter FPT engine uses a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) to deliver a minimum of 5% better fuel efficiency than our previous models and faster response times while meeting current environmental standards.

Comfort and Visibility

Without a disruptive third mast, our wide-channel, dual-mast design gives the H Series unmatched visibility. A narrow operating console further help increase front view so operators can confidently secure materials and a low-profile hood provides a clear view behind the machine. The large operating platform provides ample room for any operator. Add the optional deluxe suspension and load control for a comfortable ride on any terrain.


From tool-free swing-out access doors and spin-on filters, to ground-level site gauges and grouped service points, you can do daily maintenance in a matter of minutes. It’s the easiest way to help you get the most performance and longest life out of your machine. Axles are also easily serviced without complete disassembly for easy upkeep.
