Hyster unveils truck for paper recyclers

Hyster's H5.0FT Cool Truck
Hyster has launched a new forklift truck designed for the paper industry to overcome the common problem of engines overheating due to dust and paper debris. The new truck will be on show for the first time at a resource efficiency and waste management event, RWM, in Birmingham from 15-17 September.

"When operating standard forklift trucks in the paper industry, the radiators can easily get clogged up causing unnecessary downtime," says David Reeve, industry manager, counterbalance solutions. "This is not only frustrating, it costs businesses money in lost production and can lead to other problems."

Known as the Cool Truck, the new Hyster forklift is designed to overcome the difficult environments found in the paper supply chain, particularly paper recycling and manufacturing operations.

The trucks are based on the current Hyster H4.0-5.5FT range with capacities from 4-5.5 T.

"First of all, we had to reduce the amount of debris entering the engine compartment and getting stuck on the transmission or in the radiator," Reeve explains, adding that the baling wires can also get trapped and even damage the fins on the radiator fan.

"As a first line of defence, we developed a fully enclosed frame and vented hoods, side panels and radiator covers to reduce the vacuuming of debris from the floor into the engine compartment," he adds.

The Combi Cooler radiator fan changes direction every 20 minutes, for 20 seconds, blowing out the unwanted dust collected whilst sucking air in. It keeps the truck running longer, minimises radiator cleanouts and keeps the truck cool in high ambient operating temperatures.  Furthermore, the Combi Cooler radiator cools both engine coolant and transmission oil.

The Cool Truck package has a number of truck modifications, including a rubber guard over the drive axle, brake line guards and ballistic nylon covers for the tilt and steer cylinders. There is a solid belly pan under the engine compartment, heat resistant protection over the turbo, and a high air intake with pre-cleaner.

"This truck is designed to keep going in these tough applications, increasing the reliability and dependability that end users need from their equipment," according to Reeve.
