At Hyster, we carry a diverse array of lift trucks to suit all of your application needs. Like for example, the J45-70XN features the unique component design and Drop Battery Box which enables this unit to use pneumatic tires. Using the pneumatic tires allows for a smoother ride due to less vibrations even if the surfaces are rough. This electric truck has 4,500 to 7,000 pound capacities for both outdoor and indoor jobs. The electric motor on these units enables them to be a great zero emissions options to different other engines. Hyster offers a line of three wheel trucks as well as four wheel forklifts to suit work spaces which require a tight turning radius. The J30-40XNT model is a three wheel lift truck that surpasses most other lift trucks in its ability to turn sharp corners and manoeuvre through tight spaces. This line of forklifts is ideal in limited or crowded work areas, making loading and unloading safer and easier. This lift truck also features dual steering wheels to offer an even smoother and more stable ride. The J30-40XN unit is a four wheel lift truck which has manoeuvrability really similar to a three wheel lift truck. The four wheel design on this particular model provides a Zero Turning Radius axle which is generally a lot more comfortable when longer distances need to be covered.
Many features come standard on all Hyster forklifts, but there are lots of optional features available as well. The operator selectable performance mode option enables the driver set the level of performance required on a job to job basis. Further, it can allow a manager or supervisor to set the maximum performance level when safety could be an issue, such as helping the operator to learn in a more controlled way if a new driver is learning how to utilize the forklift.
Enclosed operator cabs might be a great alternative in some environments to help protect workers from harsh conditions. To keep the employees safe, the enclosed operator cabs provide sound proofing, an emergency exit and tempered glass. Panoramic and dual rear view mirrors are available to increase driver visibility, especially of the part behind the truck and the tail swing area. Impact monitors can be installed that disable the unit and need a supervisor or manager to re-enable the forklift. This can help to make sure that workers are operating equipment safely. To prevent lift trucks from rolling when the driver intends to stop, an auto park brake is an optional feature that can be added. The park brake applied itself automatically when the lift truck comes to a complete stop.
For different applications, certain ratings might be required. UL GS, LPS, DS underwriter laboratory rating label with approved construction standard tells the operator that the forklift has been outfitted with added resistance to spark creation. If there is an issue, there is a mechanical main battery disconnect. An EE UL rating means that the forklift can be utilized in work areas where sparks or arcs from electrical machinery might ignite airborne deposits.
