Hyster’s new Fortens forklifts

The new generation of Hyster H2.0-3.5FT ICE lift trucks come with added value features as standard, to deliver all-round benefits to supply chain operations.

Hyster Fortens lift trucks have a spacious operator compartment and ergonomic air suspension seat, creating a comfortable working environment. The intelligent design of the truck helps keep whole body vibration and noise levels low and there is easy access to the cab, optimal all-round visibility and conveniently located controls.

The Hyster DuraMatch transmission option on the FT series is electronically controlled and protected and supports intense 2-3 shift operations, seven days a week. When the accelerator pedal is released, the DuraMatch transmission automatically reduces the truck’s speed, helping to protect the powertrain and reduce tyre and brake wear, while offering smooth direction change. To help drivers accurately position loads at height, return-to-set tilt is now included when the TouchPoint e-hydraulics option is ordered, and where the DuraMatch transmission is ordered, anti-roll back on ramp, powertrain protection and a standard speed limiter are also included. Hyster Tracker telematics, which can be ordered for factory-fit or installed later via local Hyster distribution partners, can further increase uptime and profitability. The Hyster Tracker option can also be used to monitor and schedule forklift repair and maintenance, minimising unplanned downtime, and providing insight into total cost of ownership, for effective cost management.

Value-added customisation solutions include weighing systems, overload detection, intelligent seatbelt, weather protection features and air conditioning for cabins. For applications with tall loads, such as commonly found in beverage and wood applications, a raised operator cabin option enhances visibility and for those operations requiring ATEX compliance, custom solutions are available.
