Hyster launches high-performance range

The new forklift trucks have been designed for the toughest of environments. The new 8-16T, 16-18T and 36-48T ranges feature Hyster’s Vista Cab and clean-running (EC Tier 3) Cummins engines. Robust drive axles, advanced auto-shift transmission systems and engine and transmission protection systems are fitted as standard.

The H8.00-16.00XM-6 Series consists of 14 models, featuring a 6.7-litre Cummins QSB6.7 diesel engine with a performance of 155 Hp/116 kW at 2,300 rpm. An LPG version with the Cummins 6B-LPG-Plus engine is also available. The trucks are suitable for operating in environments from -18ºC up to 50ºC for normal operation, or up to 45ºC for heavy-duty operation, thanks to a new cooling system.

The compact H16.00-18.00XM(S)-12 Series consists of four models. Both the 16T and 18T versions are available in short ‘S’ (3.5 m) and standard (3.75 m) wheelbase versions. Two engine performance levels are available from the 6.7-litre Cummins QSB6.7 engine with turbo and intercooler. The new series also features class-leading lift speeds (0.36 m/sec) and highly competitive travel speeds, according to the company.

The H36.00-48.00XM(S)-12 series consists of seven models and offers maximum flexibility for a range of heavy-duty applications. The units are available either with standard forks, or with a fork-mounted, removable 20 ft–40 ft telescopic container spreader.

Hyster’s new container handlers also feature the Vista Cab and many other advanced features. The H16.00-22.00XM-12EC range introduces a new seven-high empty container handling model with an 8.5-tonne lifting capacity.

Eight additional reachstacker models increase Hyster’s range to 14 models. The reachstackers have front-mounted stabilisers and/or an increased wheelbase (from 5.9 m to 6.7 m). This, according to Hyster, gives them a higher capacity that is particularly useful for handling containers in the second and third rows, and improves container/swapbody and barge handling.
