At Hyster, we carry a diverse range of lift trucks to suit all of your application requirements. For instance, the J45-70XN includes the unique component design and Drop Battery Box that allows this particular unit to use pneumatic tires. Using the pneumatic tires allows for a smoother ride due to less vibrations even if the surfaces are bumpy. This type of electric lift truck has 4,500 to 7,000 pound capacities for jobs performed both indoors and outdoors. The electric motor on these units allows them to be a great zero emissions alternatives to other engines. Hyster provides a series of four wheel forklifts and three wheel lift trucks to suit work spaces which require a tight turning radius. The J30-40XNT model is a three wheel forklift that surpasses most other lift trucks in its ability to manoeuvre through tight spaces and turn sharp corners. This series of forklifts is ideal in crowded or limited work areas, making unloading and loading easier and safer. This forklift also features dual steering wheels to provide an even more stable and smooth ride. The J30-40XN model is a four wheel lift truck which has manoeuvrability very similar to a three wheel truck. The four wheel design on this model provides a Zero Turning Radius axle that is usually much more comfortable if longer distances need to be covered.
Lots of 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 operator set the level of performance required on a job to job basis. Further, it could enable a supervisor or manager to set the maximum performance level when safety might be an issue, such as if a new driver is learning how to use the lift truck, helping the operator to learn in a more controlled way.
Enclosed operator cabs might be a great option in certain environments to help protect workers from harsh conditions. To keep the workers safe, the enclosed operator cabs provide tempered glass, sound proofing, and an emergency exit. Dual and panoramic rear view mirrors are available to increase operator visibility, particularly of the tail swing area and the area behind the forklift. Impact monitors can be installed that disable the model and require a supervisor or manager to re-enable the forklift. This could help to ensure that workers are operating machinery safely. To prevent lift trucks from rolling when the operator intends to stop, an auto park brake is an optional feature that can be added. The park brake automatically applies itself when the forklift comes to a complete stop.
Some ratings may be needed for various applications. The approved construction standards and in particular the UL GS, LPS, DS underwriter laboratory rating labels will tell the operator whether the unit is equipped 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 lift truck could be utilized in work sites where sparks or arcs from electrical machines might ignite airborne deposits.
