At Hyster we pride ourselves in offering our clients with great products which have low long term costs of ownership by being both dependable and reliable. We also provide ongoing service for your machinery to keep them working smoothly.
Because of their simplicity compared to a traditional DC motor, Hyster has transitioned to the AC traction and pump motors. When used in a normal working environment, the AC motor's periodic maintenance intervals can be as much as 500 hours. There is no need to service motor commutators, brush rigging, or brushes and there is no sparking, maintenance or arching. Furthermore, these motors develop lower temperatures overall when compared to DC motors that give equal output. Hyster AC pump and traction motors provide better thermal performance, speed capabilities, continued dependability and more torque.
Hyster Vista masts are top of the industry masts which are made of solid steel cast cross members and have a large window for greater visibility. They feature the nested channel design and have full-face straight load rollers which are canted at three degrees. Moreover, brass side thrust plugs enable the operator to easily make adjustments to the mast during maintenance without removing or disassembling the mast. The Vista mast is made and designed by Hyster to accurate specs.
Featured on our forklifts is the most dependable steer axle within the business for hydrostatic steering. We have built ours to be reliable and durable, requiring no or little maintenance. For added safety, the Operator Pre-Shift Checklist requires the operator to answer some questions to make certain that the unit has been inspected before use. This is an optional feature that means the lift could be programmed not to start if the checklist is not done or if there is an issue which requires attention before lift operation.
