In a continuing effort to develop products based on direct customer input, Hyster (Booth 1503) showcased its J70XN, an electric pneumatic lift truck ruggedized for hard outdoor use.
With an integrated fast-charge system, the electric model is designed to compete with even the most intensive three-shift applications typically suited to internal combustion lift trucks. The truck features wet brake axles, which last more than twice as long as their dry counterparts, and fully protected undercarriage and electronics. When compared to IC alternatives, the forklift is capable of saving an end-user $14,000 over the lease term.
Hyster’s new turret truck is capable of putaways to the left and right of the direction of travel. Capable of operating in 6-foot aisles, the lift truck is also equipped to handle duties at the dock, in manufacturing, and elsewhere in the facility. This can eliminate the need for dedicated lift trucks for specific tasks.
