Increased handling flexibility is provided by the empty container handling spreader, featuring ‘reefer correction' as standard, and a choice of several different container engagement systems, for fast handling of single or double containers. This will ensure that Hyster continues to meet your needs for increased productivity and lowest cost of ownership.
Strength & Durability
The Hyster frame is immensely strong with 16 mm thick frame members and massive front axle supports. The tilt cylinder anchors are tied directly into the rear frame. The drive axles with 4.120 or optional 4.345 mm provides stability and durability; whilst the oil immersed (wet) disc brakes reduce maintenance requirements.
The hydrodynamic 3-speed transmission is controlled by APC200, providing automatically soft gear shifting, a protective forward-reverse shifting lock-out and a transmission protective device. The Hyster ‘sandwich’ type steer axle, with a single cylinder and non-adjustable tie rods is renowned for its long life and low maintenance. Large 14.00 x 24 wheels on all models offer long tyre life for low running costs.
The EC series features the Hyster ‘Vista’ cab, which gives the optimum ergonomic operator environment, and focuses on maximising driver comfort and visibility for maximum productivity.
The large windows, fitted with tinted safety glass, offer excellent all-round visibility. This is further enhanced by a filtered fresh air inlet, sliding windows, an effective heater and defrosters, wipers with washers on front, top and rear screens, especially in poor weather conditions. Optional air-conditioning is integrated into the heating and ventilation system, with manual temperature control or climate control. Sunshade screens are fitted on the top and rear windows.
The joystick gives intuitive control of mast lift, tilt and spreader functions: Sideshift, Telescope 20’-40’, Optional PPS, Twistlocks unlocking (locking is automatic).
The operator compartment is mounted at the rear of the machine, for a comfortable viewing angle during high stacking of containers.
Operator visibility during high stacking from the rearmounted cab position is also enhanced by the curved front window, the strong yet slim-line cab construction, the ‘wave pattern’ overhead guard, plus wipers on the front, top and rear screen (with double blade at the front).
The ultra-wide mast (1260mm between inner channels) and the rear-mounted lift cylinders (behind the mast channels) all add to optimum visibility.
The ‘state of the art’ Hyster ‘Vista’ cab is available with air conditioning and sliding sunshade screens on the top and rear window.
