To meet all of your application needs, Hyster carries a diverse variety of forklifts. The J45-70XN for example has a unique component design and a Drop Battery Box which will enable this particular model to utilize pneumatic tires. The pneumatic tires will enable for a smoother ride by reducing vibrations if the surfaces are rough. This electric lift truck has 4,500 to 7,000 pound capacities for tasks done both outdoors and indoors. The electric motor on these models allows them to be a great zero emissions options to various other engines. Hyster provides a line of three wheel forklifts as well as four wheel forklifts to suit work areas that need a tight turning radius. The J30-40XNT model is a three wheel forklift which surpasses nearly all other types of lift trucks in its ability to manoeuvre through tight spaces and turn sharp corners. This line of lift trucks is ideal in congested or limited work areas, making both unloading and loading easier and safer. This type of forklift also features dual steering wheels to offer an even smoother and more stable ride. The J30-40XN model is a four wheel forklift which has manoeuvrability really similar to a three wheel lift truck. The four wheel design on this specific unit offers a Zero Turning Radius axle that is normally a lot more comfortable when longer distances need to be covered.
Numerous features come standard on all Hyster lift trucks, but there are lots of optional features available too. The operator selectable performance mode option enables the operator set the level of performance required on a job to job basis. Further, it can enable a supervisor or manager to set the maximum performance level when safety might be a concern, such as when a new driver is learning how to use the truck, helping the operator to learn in a more controlled way.
Enclosed operator cabs could 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 area behind the forklift and the tail swing area. Impact monitors can be installed which disable the model and require a supervisor or manager to re-enable the truck. This can help to ensure that workers are operating machinery in a safe manner. To prevent units from rolling when the operator intends to stop, an auto park brake is an optional feature that could be added. The park brake automatically applies itself when the forklift comes to a complete stop.
Certain ratings might be required for various applications. The approved construction standards and particularly the UL GS, LPS, DS underwriter laboratory rating labels would tell the user whether the lift truck is 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 could be used in work sites where sparks or arcs from electrical machinery could ignite airborne deposits.
