At Hyster, we carry a diverse variety of lift trucks to meet all of your application needs. Like for instance, the J45-70XN features the Drop Battery Box and unique component design that allows this unit to use pneumatic tires. Utilizing the pneumatic tires enables for a smoother ride due to less vibrations even if the surfaces are rough. This particular electric lift truck has 4,500 to 7,000 pound capacities for both indoor and outdoor jobs. The electric motor on these models allows them to be a great zero emissions options to different other engines. Hyster provides a line of three wheel lift trucks as well as four wheel lift trucks to suit work areas which require a tight turning radius. The J30-40XNT model is a three wheel forklift which surpasses most other lift trucks in its ability to manoeuvre through tight spaces and turn sharp corners. This series of forklifts is great in limited or crowded work areas, making both unloading and loading easier and safer. This kind of truck also features dual steering wheels to offer an even more stable and smooth ride. The J30-40XN model is a four wheel forklift that has manoeuvrability really similar to a three wheel truck. The four wheel design on this unit provides a Zero Turning Radius axle that is usually much more comfortable if longer distances have to be covered.
Many features come standard on all Hyster forklifts, but there are lots of optional features available as well. The operator selectable performance mode option lets the driver set the level of performance needed on a job to job basis. Further, it can allow a manager or supervisor to set the maximum performance level if safety could be a concern, such as if a new operator is learning how to utilize the truck, helping the operator to learn in a more controlled way.
Enclosed operator cabs could be a good option in some environments to help protect workers from harsh conditions. To keep the employees safe, the enclosed operator cabs provide tempered glass, sound proofing, and an emergency exit. Panoramic and dual rear view mirrors are available to increase operator visibility, specially of the tail swing area and the area behind the truck. Impact monitors can be installed which disable the model and require a supervisor or manager to re-enable the lift truck. This can help to make sure that employees are safely operating machines. To prevent lift trucks from rolling when the driver intends to stop, an auto park brake is an optional feature that could be included. The park brake automatically applies itself when the unit comes to a full stop.
Certain 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 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 machinery can ignite airborne deposits.
