Storing slabs, brick or block presents tough conditions for a lift truck. Typical concrete storage sites are mostly unpaved and bumpy and can sometimes cause “load bouncing” when transporting long and heavy loads, often with an attachment.
The strong Hyster® mast design is an important feature for bumpy sites, as seen on this 12 tonne capacity lift truck, the Hyster® H12XM-6. The robust frame and wide drive axle ensure ‘rock solid’ stability and long-term durability when handling loads at full capacity.
The strong design and robust quality of the Hyster® truck, mast and carriage also helps when in high shock load operations.
Dust can also be a problem in concrete yards where standard pre-filters may not be enough. That’s why Hyster offers an optional extended height pre-cleaner air intake to get less polluted air, as well as automatic greasing to push the dirt out.
