Hyster is proud in offering great material handling machines which are both dependable and reliable machinery that have low long term costs of ownership. We also offer continuous service for your machinery to keep them functioning efficiently.
Because of their simplicity compared to a traditional DC motor, Hyster has transitioned to the AC pump motors and traction. When utilized in a normal working environment, the AC motor's periodic maintenance intervals can be as much as 500 hours. There is no sparking, maintenance or arching, and no need to service motor commutators, brush rigging, or brushes. In addition, when compared to DC motors which give equal output, these motors develop lower temperatures overall. Hyster AC traction and pump motors offer greater speed capabilities, thermal performance, more torque, and continued dependability.
The top of the industry masts, Hyster's vista masts are made of solid steel cast cross members. Additionally, they are designed with a huge window for better visibility. They feature the nested channel design and have full-face straight load rollers which are canted at three degrees. Additionally, brass side thrust plugs enable the operator to make adjustments to the mast easily during maintenance without disassembling or removing the mast. The Vista mast is designed and built by Hyster to accurate specs.
Featured on our forklifts is the most reliable steer axle within the industry for hydrostatic steering. We have made ours to be dependable and durable, requiring no or little maintenance. For more safety, the Operator Pre-Shift Checklist requires the operator to answer some questions to make sure that the unit has been inspected before use. This feature is optional which means the lift can be programmed not to start if there is an issue which needs attention before lift operation or if the checklist is not done.
