To suit all of your application needs, Hyster has a diverse variety of forklifts. The J45-70XN for instance includes a unique component design and a Drop Battery Box which 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 tasks done both indoors and outdoors. These units' electric motor enables them to be a great zero emissions options to various other engines. Hyster offers a series of three wheel lift trucks and four wheel lift trucks to suit work spaces which need a tight turning radius. The J30-40XNT unit is a three wheel forklift which surpasses most other kinds of lift trucks in its ability to manoeuvre through confined spaces and turn sharp corners. This line of forklifts is great in limited or crowded work spaces, making both unloading and loading easier and safer. This lift truck also features dual steering wheels to provide an even smoother and more stable ride. The J30-40XN model is a four wheel lift truck which has manoeuvrability very similar to a three wheel truck. The four wheel design on this unit provides a Zero Turning Radius axle that is generally a lot more comfortable when longer distances have to be covered.
Numerous features come standard on all Hyster lift trucks, but there are many optional features available too. The operator selectable performance mode option lets the operator set the performance level required on a job to job basis. Further, it could allow a supervisor or manager to set the maximum performance level when safety could be a concern, like for example helping the operator to learn in a more controlled way when a new driver is learning how to utilize the forklift.
Enclosed operator cabs could be a good alternative in certain environments to help protect employees from harsh conditions. To keep the workers safe, the enclosed operator cabs provide sound proofing, an emergency exit and tempered glass. Dual and panoramic rear view mirrors are available to increase operator visibility, particularly of the tail swing area and the area behind the forklift. Impact monitors can be installed that disable the model and require a supervisor or manager to re-enable the lift truck. This could help to ensure that employees are operating equipment in a safe manner. 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 applied itself automatically when the unit comes to a full stop.
Some ratings may be required for various applications. The approved construction standards and particularly the UL GS, LPS, DS underwriter laboratory rating labels will tell the user whether the unit is outfitted 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 used in work areas where sparks or arcs from electrical equipment could ignite airborne deposits.
