Hyster New Line of Heavy Duty Lift Trucks

September 28, 2010

Hyster Company has introduced the newest addition to the Fortis® line of lift trucks, the H170-190FT, based on the current Hyster® H135-155FT model pneumatic truck.

The new trucks accommodate loads up to 19,000 lbs without a dramatic increase in truck size or expense. They have a new, heavier VISTA® mast that provides superior load support during lifting and lowering while offering optimal operator visibility. The turbocharged and intercooled Cummins QSB3.3 Turbo Diesel Engine provides 110HP at 2,400 RPM and 305 ft-lb of torque for maximum performance.

Ideal for use with lumber, steel, and concrete applications, the new line is outfitted with an upgraded drive axle and an oil-cooled brake design, as well as larger hubs that increase truck stability. A new modulated brake system provides consistent pedal travel versus brake line pressure for optimum operator control. To ensure operator safety, an accumulator is used to store hydraulic pressure for full braking power in the event of unexpected loss of engine power.
