To suit all of your application requirements, Hyster carries a diverse range of lift trucks. The J45-70XN for example includes a unique component design and a Drop Battery Box that would allow this particular model to utilize pneumatic tires. The pneumatic tires would enable for a smoother ride by lessening vibrations if the surfaces are bumpy. This electric truck has 4,500 to 7,000 pound capacities for both outdoor and indoor jobs. The electric motor on these models enables them to be a great zero emissions options to other engines. Hyster offers a line of four wheel forklifts as well as three wheel forklifts to suit work spaces which require a tight turning radius. The J30-40XNT model is a three wheel forklift which surpasses most other forklifts in its ability to manoeuvre through tight spaces and turn sharp corners. This series of lift trucks is suitable in limited or congested work spaces, making both loading and unloading safer and easier. This kind of lift truck also features dual steering wheels to provide an even more stable and smooth ride. The J30-40XN unit is a four wheel forklift which has manoeuvrability very similar to a three wheel forklift. The four wheel design on this model offers a Zero Turning Radius axle which is normally more comfortable if longer distances have to be covered.
There are many optional features and lots of standard features provided on all Hyster lift trucks. The optional operator selectable performance mode would enable the driver to set up performance levels from job to job. Further, it could enable a supervisor or manager to set the maximum performance level when safety could be a concern, such as helping the driver to learn in a more controlled way if a new driver is learning how to use the lift truck.
Enclosed operator cabs could be a good alternative in some 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. Panoramic and dual rear view mirrors are available to improve operator visibility, especially of the area behind the forklift and the tail swing area. Impact monitors can be installed which disable the unit and need a supervisor or manager to re-enable the forklift. This could help to make certain that workers are operating machines safely. To prevent forklifts from rolling when the driver intends to stop, an auto park brake is an optional feature that can be included. The park brake automatically applies itself when the forklift comes to a complete stop.
Some ratings might be needed for different applications. The approved construction standards and in particular the UL GS, LPS, DS underwriter laboratory rating labels will tell the user 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 can be utilized in work sites where sparks or arcs from electrical machinery can ignite airborne deposits.
