Engineered for tough applications, the series is designed for long load centers, wide loads and heavy duty-cycle conditions. Coil rams are available in a number of configurations for steel industry and port applications.
Performance optimization technologies such as selectable ECO-modes, idle management and on-demand cooling, work harmoniously to reduce fuel consumption on these trucks. A heavy duty cooling package ensures low operating temperatures to assist in providing a longer life for hydraulic pumps and other major components.
All H550-700XD series feature a load sensing on-demand hydraulic system to deliver flow only when required. Variable displacement pumps capable of more oil displacement, even at low pump speeds, mean the engine runs at lower speeds, extending the life of components while operating more quietly. The system consumes up to 10% less fuel than a typical fixed displacement hydraulic system while producing less heat and noise.
A low profile carriage enables a clear line of vision for an optimized view of fork tips. Forward visibility is uncluttered by the position of hydraulic valves, hoses or mast crossmembers with a clear view through the mast window. Canted hoses are arranged along the line of sight so the operator sees only one hose and has good visibility.
Curved, scratch resistant, tempered glass front and rear windshields, armored glass top window and steel-framed glass doors provide operators with excellent all-around visibility. On the exterior, sloping counterweights enhance visibility of steer tires for improved maneuverability and reduced tire gouging.
Fuel consumption is a key driver of the total cost of ownership for heavy duty lift trucks. Hyster high capacity lift trucks are engineered with integrated powertrain system and on-demand hydraulics to deliver low fuel consumption with high levels of productivity.
The engine design produces more power and torque using XPI high-pressure, common-rail fuel injection and variable geometry turbochargers. Advanced controls enable the engine to provide peak performance and operating efficiency while delivering great fuel economy and durability.
The ergonomically designed high visibility cab puts greater productivity within easy reach. Equipped with an armored glass top window, curved front and rear windows and steel doors with tempered glass, the operator cab provides excellent all-around visibility. Inside the cab there is more space with the largest entry area in the industry, more control with a full-color screen displaying performance data at the operator’s fingertips and more comfort with an exclusive lateral sliding seat, adjustable steering column and foot pedal, plus ergonomic controls.
Hyster forklifts are designed with the service technician in mind. Gull-wing hoods provide quick access to key components, and daily checks don’t require tilting the cab. A tilting cab provides easy access to hydraulic components in seconds. Galvanized, broad, slip-resistant running boards foster quick daily checks, while a large access bay enables easy radiator cleaning. A hydraulic sight gauge makes for at-a-glance fluid level checks.
