RemoteTech® introduced on all Hoist liftrucks

BEDFORD PARK, IL , June 16, 2006— Hoist Liftruck Mfg., Inc. is introducing a new diagnostics system on its entire line of liftrucks that will help monitor numerous vehicle functions, helping to maintain quality performance and prevent premature damage.

The RemoteTech® system monitors potential problems in the engine, transmission, autoshifting, hydraulics and filters. The system also monitors shock, overloading and vehicle speed. The service provider can program standards RemoteTech® needs to monitor, such as maximum load capacity, speed limit and clogged filters. Wireless communications allows RemoteTech® to automatically notify assigned recipients via email of any occurance, specifying the time, date and details of the occurance. Problems can then be addressed remotely or service can be scheduled if necessary. The system will also allow the service provider to reprogram, add or delete any of the standards from a remote location.

“A company can lose a significant amount of time and money with a disabled truck,” says Martin Flaska, president of Hoist Liftruck Mfg., Inc. “RemoteTech® can detect problems and give warnings before further damage can be done. “We want to help our customers get the most out of their liftrucks and see their business be successful.”

RemoteTech® will be standard on all series of Hoist liftrucks including the cushion-tire Titan and FKS series, pneumatic-tire P-Series, electric Lazer Series and marina Neptune Series. Hoist is the only manufacturer that can deliver in eight weeks or less. With the majority of the components made from North American manufacturers, parts for Hoist’s core products are available 24-hours a day and in most cases can be shipped the same day. Known for its quality and reliability, Hoist is constantly looking to improve upon technology and operator comfort through advanced engineering.

Hoist Liftruck Mfg., Inc. manufactures heavy-duty lifting products, ranging in capacity from 6.7 tons to 50 tons. Hoist Liftruck manufactures electric, LPG, and diesel cushion tire trucks, platform and die trucks, LPG and diesel pneumatic tire trucks, marina pneumatic trucks, tow tractors and AGV units. Hoist Liftrucks are engineered for the speed, power, and durability required of any heavy industry.
