Hyster has been able to significantly reduce noise levels on its high capacity forklift trucks range to help ports and terminals located close to residential areas.  Hyster was able to achieve quieter trucks with the introduction of cooling on demand and other new technologies featured on the Tier4i / Stage IIIB compliant equipment.

    Not only do these noise levels improve the environmental quality for neighbours, it also helps minimise the driver’s exposure to noise.

    Hyster has focused significant research and development resources on noise levels across the range and in 2011 launched the new Fortens® range with operator ear noise levels measuring 79dB(A)* for both diesel and LPG 2.5t models.

    *Average noise level at operator’s ear. Measured according to the test cycles and based on the weighting values contained in EN12053
