How can you overcome challenges in demanding industry applications with the help of Hyster® lift trucks? That’s what visitors to the Hyster Europe stand at IMHX 2019 discovered at the show from 24 – 27 September at NEC Birmingham, UK.
New Paper Reel Handling Solution
Hyster Europe showed a specially optimised J5.5XN6 electric lift truck which enables paper reels to be loaded down the centre line of a lorry trailer for transport, helping to evenly distribute weight, improve stability and reduce paper reel damage. The tilting carriage option and reel clamp attachment make it possible to handle paper reels with 5.5-tonne capacity lift truck (where previously a 7-tonne truck would be needed).
Construction Supply Chain Driver Awareness
The Hyster® H3.5FT lift truck on display at the show is a popular model in construction materials manufacturing and DIY retail distribution centre operations. Visitors saw how driver awareness add-ons can be combined with tough Hyster® Fortens™ lift trucks in these types of applications to help reduce downtime and maximise productivity. Object detection systems, cameras and lights, are available to support drivers and complement the design of Hyster® Fortens™ lift trucks, which feature an operator cab that provides good visibility, optimal comfort and intuitive controls.
Hyster® brand celebrates 90th anniversary
To mark 90 years of the Hyster® brand, the stand at IMHX showed a J2.5XN electric lift truck featuring a lithium ion battery and ‘retro’ décor which encouraged conversation about developments in lift truck power.
A key topic at the show was reduced emissions. Stage V engines were introduced on several Hyster® FT and Hyster® XT ICE forklifts at the beginning of the year, bringing low emission productivity and reliability to ICE operations.
