We have not had the issues yet with the transmission , nor the electrical system , I have heard this rumor before , we have a fleet of over 50 units in the rental side and so far so good.We Will keep everyone informed if we run into issues with the fleet.

We Can Handle It When No One Else Can.
From what I have heard you are lucky to keep the things running. They are having transmission problems and massive electrical malfunctions that take the machine completely out of service. If the machine goes into default and quits running it will lock up and dump any load that you are moving.
Everyone that I have spoke with is sorry that they wasted their money

Michal P : Thanks much for the info. It is very appreciated.

etharp: I have a very good relationship with the local hyster dealer. If you by chance happen to have a part number for this tool you are interested in, I could check and see if they will sell it to me. Not trying to sell you anything, just trying to be helpful.

Could you tell me if the fortis truck has a filter anywhere between the Lp regulator and the injectors? The older CARB2 trucks have one going to the start/idle injector. Its a small 3 port type of unit.

You help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Craig, why has Hyster/GM dropped down to a 2.4L engine? What is the rated HP of the Gas/LP?

We have received one of the gm powered units and it has good power it's rated as a 2.4 liter versus the old 3.0 liter , this is going out on demos and it is attracting lots of attention and lots of operators asking their boss to buy these units. these units in gas or lpg are fuel injected so they make good horsepower and should be very reliable.let me know if you need anymore info.

Does anyone know what sort of fuel system the Fortis is running on the Mazda engines? Is it similiar to the 2004 models? Anyone have some pics of the engine, spcifically the fuel system. I am very curious about the system they are running.

Well Craig, let me be more specific. Have you or anyone reading this post actually received a new Hyster Fortis or Yale Veracitor with a GM engine? Ordering them is one thing, receiving them is another. A Yale rep told me almost the EXACT same thing that you said about the Mazda's. He said that "Mazda has made great strides regarding H.P." He also said that the GM would not be available for the 4,000 to 7,000 lb. trucks. I am not at all emplying that that this is fact. I am just curious because as far as I know, no one has received one as of yet. Hyster has always had great success with the GM's in this capacity. The Mazda has not been an engine of choice when running ramps or in clamping applications. The 6,000 to 6,500 lb. Hyster XM's were considered to be under powered even with the upgraded Mazda 2.2L. The Mazda 2.0L was almost never sold in the 6,000 to 6,500 lb. XM due to the lack of power.

The GM engine is being put into the units , and our dealership has bought some to put into our rental fleets , but i will say this for the line , the mazda seems to have made some strides in the power department , the new mazdas are almost as good as the old gm units for pulling grades...I will keep you posted as to the updates as we receive the units in

Tim, I assume that you are either a Hyster rep or a Hyster customer and have first hand knowledge of the new line. Have you seen any in operation yet? What about the GM engine. Both Yale and Hyster have promoted the "Performance" truck with the GM. Any truth to the rumor that the GM will not be available?
