Hyster Company Introduces New Electric Stand Lift Truck Series

Hyster Company has introduced the new E30-40HSD2 series of electric stand-up lift trucks. The three-wheel Hyster E30-40HSD2 lift truck series delivers lifting capacities of 3,000 to 4,000 lbs. and significant performance and versatility for a wide variety of materials handling operations.

“These trucks were designed with productivity and superior ergonomics in mind,” said Brett Schemerhorn, vice president of dealer sales, Hyster Company. “The E30-40HSD2 series is a workhorse, whose versatility and features will enable operations to go from dock to stock and just about anywhere in between.”

With the ergonomic philosophy of operators making the lift trucks work harder—not the other way around—E30-40HSD2 lift trucks feature suspended floorplates with anti-fatigue mats that absorb and reduce the transmission of vibration and shock to the operator by 25 percent. The trucks also utilize multi-function control handles, as well as other productivity-enhancing features, such as the low-effort hydraulic control, flex-stance compartment and the optional integral sideshift. The operator compartment boasts operator controls that are positioned to allow a side stance or 45-degree stance to maximize comfort, efficiency and visibility. The contoured wraparound padded backrest with integrated thigh and knee pads, anti-fatigue floor mat and suspended floor significantly reduces the transmission of vibrations for further operator comfort.

“We’ve made the operators’ jobs much easier with the E30-40HSD2 trucks,” said Schemerhorn. “After all, the more operators enjoy their jobs, the more productive they’ll be, which is a win for everyone.”

The E30-40HSD2 series three-wheel configuration provides a tighter turning radius for significant maneuverability that makes stacking in limited space and congested loading bays easier. The dual steer wheels provide a smoother, more stable ride. Other features include the grid-style pattern of the overhead guard, which provides excellent visibility while protecting operators. The optional integral sideshift affords excellent visibility and greater capacities than carriage-mounted sideshifts.

The E30-40HSD2 lift trucks’ top and front console covers are made of a durable crack-resistant ABS polymer, and include large storage areas for operator convenience. The brushless AC traction and hydraulic motors, powered by transistor controls, are durable enough to handle the toughest duty cycle, while reducing maintenance costs and enhancing productivity.
