NEW FROM HYSTER COMPANY - FREIGHTER’S SPECIAL - AVAILABLE ONLY ON W40Z SERIES MOTORIZED WALKIE LIFT TRUCKS
(Greenville, N.C. – Americas Division Headquarters) — Hyster Company announces the availability of its new option, the Freighter’s Special, on the Hyster® W40Z Series walkie motorized line. This 4,000-pound capacity lift truck offers superior productivity, maneuverability, and ease of use. The Freighter’s Special, an option exclusive to the W40Z series, offers best in class maneuverability, especially in confined environments such as trailers. The fork tip length is 2 inches shorter and the redesigned bumper provides a tighter right angle turn for easier stacking and equal aisle placement. These enhancements allow operators to load two additional pallets per trailer, increasing productivity and throughput.
The W40Z series boasts many features including the Auto Deceleration System that automatically slows the truck when acceleration is released, thus extending the traction motor brush and brake life. In addition, regular maintenance is simplified by a 40-percent reduction in electrical connections and easily identifiable wiring. An optional 48-inch or 60-inch load backrest extension also maximizes load capabilities and increases efficiency.
Offering enhanced maneuverability, the W40Z series excels in small spaces such as loading docks and narrow trailers. Creep Speed function comes standard on the W40Z series and allows the truck to function with the control handle in the full “up” position, giving operators better visibility by increasing their proximity to their loads. Hyster Company also offers the Freighter’s Special option, which includes shorter fork tips and a unique bumper profile making loads easier to maneuver inside trailers. In addition, three battery options and two battery compartments are available.
The ergonomic design enhances efficiency with features including a control handle design, which allows the operator to use all functions at their fingertips. Angled handgrips and a contoured handle also provide comfortable positioning and protect fingers and knuckles during use. In addition, the handle also features a direction throttle control actuator that provides a 30-degree rotation in either direction, allowing for a fuller range of motion. Optional features also include a cooler/freezer package, designed to operate in cooler/freezer environments with temperatures down to 0 degrees.
