Hyster Introduces New Line of Lift Trucks

The J45-70XN is the newest line of lift trucks from Hyster Co., Danville, Ill. This forklift truck series offers an innovative component design and “Drop Battery Box,” which allows for the use of pneumatic tires on an electric truck. The feature provides a “zero emissions” alternative for 4,500- to 7,000-pound capacity indoor and outdoor applications. The pneumatic tires are designed to help reduce vibration in order to provide a smooth, comfortable ride, even over less than ideal surfaces. With the specially configured drop battery box, the battery sits low in the frame for a lower seating position. This feature is designed to offer easier entry and exit from the truck. The lift truck’s stamped steel hood is designed for durability and protection.

Hyster’s newly designed operator module provides a comfortable and productive compartment that features a 20 percent increase in floor space and a relocated “heads-up” multifunction display for enhanced visibility and pallet control. AC technology delivers quick and smooth changes in travel direction, and offers precise speed control with excellent acceleration which significantly increases productivity.

The forklift truck’s zero-turn radius steer axle and dual AC drive motors combine to provide extraordinary maneuverability. And, a Hyster-designed thermal management system maximizes performance during continuous operation, while preventing damage to components due to heat.
