Hyster updated trucks
Surrey, United Kingdom
Hyster Europe has launched an updated 8 to 16 T capacity lift truck. The latest heavy-duty models provide optimal visibility, strength and reliability, making handling and transportation easier than ever.
"The Hyster H8-16XM range now has a completely new mast and carriage, giving fast attachment exchange as well as optimum visibility of the forks, the attachment and the load," says Chris van de Werdt, product strategy manager - big trucks, Hyster Europe.
The new mast design is reported to offer added strength, and the intelligent design has increased the residual capacity on each truck by at least 400 kg for the side shift pin-type carriage. The new range of two-stage masts and extended range of pin- or hook-type carriages are available on the H8-12XM-6, H13-16XM-6 and H10XM-12 models.
The trucks feature Stage IV-compliant Cummins engines which produce lower emissions and offer excellent fuel economy, significantly reducing lifetime costs. They also feature performance optimisation features such as cooling on demand, load-sensing hydraulics (power on demand), RPM management and alternate engine idle speed to help further reduce the total fuel consumption in most tough applications.
