Hyster Company Unveils New Durable Tier IV Final Compliant Engines at ProMat 2013Tuesday, January 29, 2013
With ever-present U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emissions standards and the global push for greener equipment solutions, Hyster Company introduced its EPA Tier IV Final compliant engine solution on the Hyster® H80FT lift truck at this week’s ProMat 2013 show (Booth #1503).
“Our desire to provide near-zero emission engines is fueled by our commitment to our customers having a truck that meets their application needs, as well as EPA emissions requirements,” said Jonathan Dawley, president of Hyster Distribution. “Hyster is providing rugged lift trucks that get tough on their application, but stay soft on the environment.”
In 2011, the EPA set standards to regulate emissions in larger materials handling equipment, expecting to reduce exhaust emissions by 90 percent. Hyster Company is proud to deliver tough, durable ICE trucks that won’t strain the environment and meet these challenging EPA regulations. The efficient 74 horsepower Tier IV Final compliant diesel engine features an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system and a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to achieve near-zero emissions. The use of EGR technology eliminates any need for urea or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF)-related equipment or costs.
The Hyster H80FT lift truck is designed to meet and exceed application requirements in industries such as industrial machinery, scrap and waste applications and lumber yards while producing extremely low exhaust emissions.
