World-wide regarded as the leading forklift manufacturer, Hyster is certainly the best and most reliable forklift brand. Hyster is constantly upgrading its range of forklifts and material handling equipment. One series featuring some of the toughest forklifts in the industry is Hyster Fortens series of internal combustion forklift trucks. Equipped with new engines and mast options from 2 to 3.5 tonne range, Hyster forklift trucks from this series are able to withstand 24-hour operations, even in extremely hot and cold temperatures.
Hyster Fortens forklift trucks differ from all other brands, especially when used for supply chain. With all their capacities and capabilities, all six Hyster forklift models from Fortens series are perfect for manufacturing and logistics operations. Here are few ways Hyster Fortens forklifts toughen up the supply chain.
Choose The Heavy-Duty Transmission – The new Hyster forklift trucks from Fortens series offer four transmission options. If you want to toughen up your supply chain, choose the heavy-duty 3-speed DuraMatch 3 transmission. A new electronically controlled and heavy-duty transmission, the DuraMatch 3 provides a smooth turning even during the toughest lifting applications. It also contributes to extended component life (most on tire and brake life) and lower operating costs.
Rigid Construction – Each Hyster forklift from Fortens series comes with a rigid construction, which has undergone multiple tests to ensure durability and strength. The rigid construction provides a great protection to the components, but the Hyster Fortens forklifts are further protected with a continuous monitoring and air filter restriction.
Outstanding Performance – Hyster Fortens series have two operator controls settings programmed. The first one is High Performance (HiP) setting and it is the standard operating mode. The other one is an optional Eco mode and is especially dedicated to operators looking to additionally reduce the fuel consumption. With these two modes, the operators can reduce the maximum engine speed to provide large savings on fuel, while maintaining an outstanding productivity.
New Heavy-Duty Mast – The new tough mast included in each Hyster forklift of Fortens series provides a maximized fork visibility to the operators and speeds up the cycle times. But there are two mast designs: 3-stage full free lift and 2-stage limited free lift. Both designs increase the toughness of Hyster forklift trucks, while reducing the total owning costs through extended service life. The lowering speeds of mast have also been increased and provide operators with two extra loads per hour. All this results in enhanced productivity.
