Widely regarded as the toughest forklifts in the industry, the Hyster Fortens series of IC trucks has undergone a transformation with new engines and mast options. Designed for demanding 24/7 operations, including operating on ramps, in extreme temperatures and making aggressive direction changes, Hyster Fortens trucks continue to excel where other brands fail to take the strain. Here are 11 reasons why the Hyster Fortens is perfectly suited to paper, wood, metal and a range of tough manufacturing and logistics operations.
Exclusive to Hyster, the electronically controlled DuraMatch transmission provides smoother directional changes to eliminate shock loading in the toughest applications.
The DuraMatch transmission offers state of the art features managed by the VSM (Vehicle System Manager), such as the Auto Deceleration System and the additional Controlled Power Reversal feature, which assist driver control and contribute to extended brake and tyre life, by reducing wheel-spin and tyre scrubbing. These features also reduce transmission shock loadings, resulting in extended component life and lower operating costs.
Continuous monitoring of the hydraulic and air filter restriction, as well as the coolant level, help to protect the major components of Hyster Fortens IC trucks.
Brake maintenance is significantly reduced as a result of Auto Deceleration and can be virtually eliminated, even with a wide variety of driving styles, thanks to the oil immersed brakes, available as an option on the 2-3.5 tonne Hyster Fortens models.
High impact resistant cabs are designed to be tough on the outside but comfortable on the inside. For applications that expose operators to extreme temperatures or harsh weather conditions, fully enclosed cabs can also be fitted with heating or air conditioning systems.
The patented Hyster Stability Mechanism (HSM) provides side-stability by limiting steer axle articulation. The HSM operates through a rubber suspension block, which is 100% maintenance free and improves ride quality over uneven surfaces.
The tough frame construction featured across the Fortens range has been thoroughly tested for strength and rigidity and also provides a firm platform to lift capacity loads to full height for over 100 thousand lift cycles.
Two operator control settings are programmed into the Hyster Fortens range. A HiP (High Performance) performance setting is the standard operating mode, but for operations looking to further reduce fuel consumption, the ECO-eLo mode can be activated. This reduces the maximum engine speed and makes the engine response less aggressive, resulting in significant fuel savings for a nominal reduction in overall productivity rates. High productivity is a characteristic of Hyster products and Fortens LPG powered trucks have been recorded moving up to 65 loads per hour under test conditions. Fuel consumption can be as little as 3 litres per hour based on H2.5FT equipped with Yanmar 2.6litre diesel engine, load sensing hydraulics and PSS tyres, when tested on the industry standard VDI 2198 fuel consumption cycle.
Load Sensing Hydraulics (LSH), featuring Variable Displacement Pump (VDP) technology, help to reduce the demand of the hydraulic systems on the engine. Increased hydraulic flow is only delivered when required to power the major hydraulic functions, including lifting and attachment operation. Load Sensing Hydraulics are responsive to the demands of the application at any given time, so power is not wasted and fuel consumption is reduced.
Hyster forklift trucks maintain high residual values throughout their working life and this is directly attributable to their design values of strength and durability. The Hyster Fortens is built for demanding materials handling operations and offers customers excellent returns on investment.
To maximise utilisation and uptime in operation, the Hyster Tracker wireless access monitoring system enables customers to measure and manage truck performance so they can see at all times the benefit of using Hyster trucks.
Some of the key system benefits include asset protection through impact monitoring, cost management and downtime control. Cost factors are recorded wirelessly through the HysterTracker.com portal, which can be accessed by Hyster dealers and customers simply and effectively by using a desktop, laptop or tablet.
