At Hyster, we have a diverse variety of forklifts to meet all of your application needs. Like for example, the J45-70XN features the unique component design and Drop Battery Box which allows this particular unit to use pneumatic tires. Utilizing the pneumatic tires allows for a smoother ride due to reduced vibrations even when the surfaces are rough. This type of electric lift truck has 4,500 to 7,000 pound capacities for tasks performed both indoors and outdoors. These models' electric motor allows them to be a great zero emissions options to other engines. Hyster provides a series of four wheel lift trucks and three wheel trucks to suit work spaces which require a tight turning radius. The J30-40XNT unit is a three wheel forklift that surpasses most other kinds of 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 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 forklift that has manoeuvrability very similar to a three wheel truck. The four wheel design on this specific model offers a Zero Turning Radius axle that is normally much more comfortable when longer distances have to be covered.
There are many optional features and many standard features provided on all Hyster forklifts. The optional operator selectable performance mode will enable the operator to set up performance levels from job to job. Further, it can allow a supervisor or manager to set the maximum performance level when safety could be an issue, like for instance when a new operator is learning how to use the forklift, helping the driver to learn in a more controlled way.
In some environments, enclosed operator cabs could be a great alternative for protecting employees from harsh conditions. An emergency exit, tempered glass and sound proofing help to keep the employee safe. Dual and panoramic rear view mirrors are available to enhance driver visibility, specially of the part behind the truck and the tail swing area. Impact monitors can be installed which disable the unit and need a manager or supervisor to re-enable the forklift. This could help to ensure that workers are safely operating machines. To prevent units from rolling when the operator intends to stop, an auto park brake is an optional feature which can be included. The park brake automatically applies itself when the lift truck comes to a complete stop.
Some ratings might be needed for various applications. The approved construction standards and in particular the UL GS, LPS, DS underwriter laboratory rating labels will tell the driver whether the lift truck 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 forklift could be used in work sites where sparks or arcs from electrical equipment could ignite airborne deposits.
