Hyster introduces AC-powered lift truck series
AC technology is brushless, meaning there's no maintenance needed for the traction, steer and optional brushless hoist motor in the new line of E45-65Z lift trucks from Hyster Co. Inc.
The line is powered by a 36- or 48-volt AC system. These trucks maintain speed no matter what the load or battery discharge levels. It's possible to boost loaded travel speed and acceleration by shutting off the standard extended shift AC controller.
For operators, hydraulic control soft-touch levers are within normal reach. Standard is a non-suspension seat, with option suspension and swivel seats available. A 7-position tilt steer column helps lessen operator fatigue.
For greater productivity, loads moved per shift are increased because truck AC controllers and brushless induction traction motors permit quick, smooth direction changes.
