To suit all of your application requirements, Hyster carries a diverse variety of forklifts. The J45-70XN for example includes a unique component design and a Drop Battery Box which would allow this model to utilize pneumatic tires. The pneumatic tires would allow for a smoother ride by reducing vibrations if the surfaces are rough. This specific electric lift truck has 4,500 to 7,000 pound capacities for both outdoor and indoor work. These models' electric motor allows them to be a great zero emissions options to various other engines. Hyster provides a series of three wheel trucks and four wheel forklifts to suit work areas that require a tight turning radius. The J30-40XNT unit is a three wheel lift truck which surpasses nearly all other lift trucks in its ability to manoeuvre through tight spaces and turn sharp corners. This line of lift trucks is ideal in limited or congested work areas, making both loading and unloading safer and easier. This kind of truck also features dual steering wheels to give an even smoother and more stable ride. The J30-40XN model is a four wheel forklift which has manoeuvrability very similar to a three wheel truck. The four wheel design on this model offers a Zero Turning Radius axle that is normally much more comfortable if longer distances have to be covered.
There are a lot of optional features and lots of standard features provided on all Hyster lift trucks. The optional operator selectable performance mode would enable the driver to set up levels of performance from job to job. Further, it could enable a manager or supervisor to set the maximum performance level if safety could be a concern, like helping the operator to learn in a more controlled way if a new operator is learning how to use the forklift.
In some environments, enclosed operator cabs might be a great alternative for protecting employees from harsh conditions. An emergency exit, tempered glass and sound proofing help to keep the worker safe. Dual and panoramic rear view mirrors are available to increase operator visibility, specially of the part behind the lift truck and the tail swing area. Impact monitors can be installed which disable the model and require a manager or supervisor to re-enable the lift truck. This can help to make sure that employees are safely operating machinery. To prevent lift trucks from rolling when the driver intends to stop, an auto park brake is an optional feature which could be included. The park brake applied itself automatically when the unit comes to a complete stop.
Certain ratings may be required for different applications. The approved construction standards and particularly the UL GS, LPS, DS underwriter laboratory rating labels will tell the user whether the forklift 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 can be utilized in work sites where arcs or sparks from electrical equipment may ignite airborne deposits.
