100% Charge in 80 Minutes! New Hyster® 7-9 Tonne Lithium-ion Lift Trucks

9th October 2020

Have you seen our new Hyster® J7.0–9.0XNL forklift series with fully integrated lithium-ion batteries which can achieve 100% charge in just 80 minutes?

The new electric Hyster® lift trucks have 7 – 9-tonne lift capacity, high voltage lithium-ion batteries and the endurance to support three shift operations in demanding industrial applications such as:

1. Paper handling
2. Brick, block, and construction materials
3. Timber
4. Metals
5. And many other heavy-duty industries!

Fast opportunity charging

The lithium-ion battery can be fully charged in less than 80 minutes using a 50-kW charger. This enables rapid opportunity charging during regular work breaks which eliminates the need for battery exchange.

Service requirements are minimal too – the integrated lithium-ion battery is maintenance free and, in the right application, has three times the life of a lead acid battery.

Comparable diesel engine performance

With the unique combination of a lithium-ion battery, a high voltage drive system, and the use of multi-phase permanent magnetic motors, operations can expect IC-like productivity, control and autonomy. As well as reduced noise levels, zero emissions and a low Total Cost of Ownership.

Productivity and dependability

The four new models (two compact and two standard) can operate at maximum capacity for a full 8 hours. Get the job completed quickly, thanks to fast acceleration over the first 15 metres and top speeds of up to 21 km/h (unladen) and 18km/h (laden) – ideal for sites with long driving distances.

The tough new Hyster® lithium-ion forklifts are designed for dependability in both indoor and outdoor applications. The maintenance-free Hyster® Stability Mechanism™ helps keep the truck steady for efficient operation, even on rough surfaces while a robust chassis and high strength mast design optimises capacity, visibility, and rigidity.

Operator comfort

An operator compartment with clear unobstructed foot space, an adjustable steering column, rear drive handle with horn, and easy cab access make the truck comfortable. Thanks to the full suspension seat and low whole-body vibration levels, operators sit comfortably, while automotive-style pedals give precise low-speed control and smooth electronic inching. TouchPoint mini-levers integrated into the armrest provide hydraulic control and other key functions at the operator’s fingertips.

Application-matched attachments

To help match the performance of the truck to the specific application, wide hook-type carriages allow the fitting of a wide variety of forks and attachments. There are many other options and additional features available.
