At Hyster, we have a diverse array of forklifts to meet all of your application needs. For example, the J45-70XN has the unique component design and Drop Battery Box that allows this model to utilize pneumatic tires. Using the pneumatic tires allows for a smoother ride because of reduced vibrations even when the surfaces are rough. This specific electric truck has 4,500 to 7,000 pound capacities for jobs performed both indoors and outdoors. These units' electric motor enables them to be a great zero emissions alternatives to different other engines. Hyster provides 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 forklifts in its ability to manoeuvre through tight spaces and turn sharp corners. This line of forklifts is ideal in limited or congested work spaces, making unloading and loading easier and safer. This truck also features dual steering wheels to give an even more stable and smooth ride. The J30-40XN unit is a four wheel lift truck which has manoeuvrability really similar to a three wheel lift truck. The four wheel design on this model provides a Zero Turning Radius axle that is generally a lot more comfortable when longer distances have to be covered.
A lot of features come standard on all Hyster lift trucks, but there are numerous optional features available too. The operator selectable performance mode option allows the driver 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 might be a concern, like when a new operator is learning how to use the truck, helping the operator to learn in a more controlled way.
Enclosed operator cabs could be a good alternative in some 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 enhance driver visibility, specially of the area behind the lift truck and the tail swing area. Impact monitors could be installed which disable the model and require a supervisor or manager to re-enable the truck. This could help to make certain that employees are safely operating machines. 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 applied itself automatically when the forklift comes to a full stop.
Some ratings might be needed for various applications. The approved construction standards and particularly the UL GS, LPS, DS underwriter laboratory rating labels will tell the driver whether the forklift 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 utilized in work areas where sparks or arcs from electrical equipment might ignite airborne deposits.
