Hyster E50XL:
When going slow forward or reverse it basically sputters..

Hey all, just picked up an electric hyster. Basically if I'm not flooring it when I accelerate the forklift just kind of goes and stops, goes and stops like I'm tapping the pedal. Was hoping someone had some kind of clue why this is happening.

Thanks for your time!

Showing items 1 - 1 of 1 results.
- whats the serial number of the truck?
- what is the display showing when this happens?
- what is the actual state of the battery? (not what's showing on the BDI).
- if you have a hydrometer check the SG. (do this only after charging for a true reading on each cell, SG levels are relative to the state of charge of the battery so don't check it when the battery is discharged)
- was it low in water/fluid? is the fluid level ok?

use a VOM and check it unloaded and under a load using hydraulics. How much voltage drop?

Fact of the week

The earliest known production of steel is seen in pieces of ironware excavated from an archaeological site in Anatolia and are nearly 4,000 years old, dating from 1800 BC. The main reasons for the popularity of steel are the relatively low cost of making, forming, and processing it, the abundance of its two raw materials (iron ore and scrap), and its unparalleled range of mechanical properties.
