Hyster's H550-700HD lift trucks offer lifting capacities of 55,000 to 70,000 pounds
Hyster Company has launched a series of lift trucks in the 55,000- to 70,000-pound lifting capacity range. The Hyster H550-700HD models are suited for a variety of applications, including steel manufacturing, loading general cargo at sea ports, or moving and stacking loaded and unloaded containers.
The newly designed models combine a host of new features, including the ComforCab II operator compartment.
In addition, the hydraulic system has been redesigned for optimal reliability and to lower the truck’s operating cost. With its “Power-on-Demand” load-sensing hydraulic system, the hydraulic fluid is only pumped when the system is required to do work. At low load conditions, drivers won’t need to rev the engine to receive fast hydraulic speeds. This system leads to lower hydraulic oil temperature; extended life of hydraulic oil, filter, hoses, seals and components; and simplified plumbing with a reduction in the number of connections and O-ring face seal (ORFS) fittings.
The lift trucks also feature a new cooling system design capable of giving heavy duty performance, even at 110-degree ambient temperatures. The new series’ electrical connections used throughout the trucks are sealed Deutsch connectors and provide high performance in all weather conditions.
The redesigned hydraulic system can reduce fuel consumption, since the engine operates mostly in low RPM range, and can also extend the hydraulic oil change intervals. The wet disc brakes require minimal maintenance, while the friction discs last up to 20,000 hours. The Sy-Klone Air Pre-Cleaner is self cleaning and extends the life of the air filter. The powertrain protection system protects the engine and transmission by reducing power or shutting the truck down under prescribed conditions to avoid damage.
