At Hyster, we have a diverse array of forklifts to meet all of your application requirements. For example, the J45-70XN features the Drop Battery Box and unique component design that enables this model to use pneumatic tires. The use of the pneumatic tires allows for a smoother ride due to less vibrations even when the surfaces are rough. This kind of electric forklift has 4,500 to 7,000 pound capacities for tasks performed both outdoors and indoors. The electric motor on these models allows them to be a great zero emissions options to other engines. Hyster offers a line of four wheel forklifts as well as three wheel trucks to suit work spaces 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 series of lift trucks is ideal in congested or limited work areas, making unloading and loading easier and safer. This truck also features dual steering wheels to provide an even more stable and smooth ride. The J30-40XN unit is a four wheel lift truck which has manoeuvrability very similar to a three wheel lift truck. The four wheel design on this specific unit offers a Zero Turning Radius axle which is normally more comfortable if longer distances have to be covered.
Lots of features come standard on all Hyster lift trucks, but there are many 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 could allow a manager or supervisor to set the maximum level of performance when safety could be a concern, such as helping the operator to learn in a more controlled way if a new driver is learning how to use the lift truck.
In some environments, enclosed operator cabs might be a great option for protecting workers from harsh conditions. Tempered glass, sound proofing, and an emergency exit help to keep the employee safe. Panoramic and dual rear view mirrors are available to enhance driver visibility, particularly of the part behind the lift truck and the tail swing area. Impact monitors could be installed that disable the unit and need a supervisor or manager to re-enable the truck. This could help to make certain that workers are operating equipment in a safe manner. To prevent forklifts from rolling when the driver intends to stop, an auto park brake is an optional feature which could be added. The park brake automatically applies itself when the forklift comes to a complete stop.
Some 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 unit is equipped with added resistance to spark creation. If there is a concern, there is a mechanical main battery disconnect. An EE UL rating means that the forklift can be used in work areas where sparks or arcs from electrical equipment might ignite airborne deposits.
