Hyster Lift Trucks

Feb. 22, 2010
Hyster Co. launches the H550-700HD series of 55,000- to 70,000-pound-capacity lift trucks, suitable for steel manufacturing, loading cargo at ports or moving and stacking loaded and unloaded containers.

The trucks feature “Power-on-Demand” load-sensing hydraulic systems, which only pump fluid when it’s needed to do work. This leads to lower hydraulic oil temperature and extended life of hydraulic oil, filter, hoses, seals and components, according to Hyster. The systems can also reduce fuel consumption, since the engine operates mostly in low-rpm ranges.

The lift trucks are equipped with new, heavy-duty cooling systems, self-cleaning Sy-Klone Air Pre-Cleaners that extend the life of air filters, ComforCab II operator compartments and powertrain protection systems that reduce power or shut down the truck under certain conditions to avoid damage.
