Hyster H8.0-9.0FT Diesel and LPG Counterbalanced Fork Lift Truck Highlights:

  • Extremely small yet incredibly strong, the 8 tonne capacity trucks are available for forklift truck hire and sale with either 600mm or 900mm load centre, while at 9 tonnes, the load centre is 600mm on a wheelbase of only 2,450mm, offering advantages over larger trucks when space is a constraint
  • A robust chassis and high strength mast design optimises capacity retention at high lifts with excellent visibility and rigidity
  • All powertrains are controlled, protected and managed by the Pacesetter VSM™ industrial onboard computer featuring a CANbus communications network. This system permits adjustment of the truck’s performance, in addition to monitoring key functions, enabling quick, easy diagnostics, minimising repair downtime and unnecessary parts swapping
  • Choose either DuraMatch™ 3 or DuraMatch™ Plus3 transmissions:
    • The Fortens and Fortens Advance models feature the 3-speed DuraMatch™ 3 transmission which manages truck deceleration & direction changes, contributing to extending brake and tyre life and preventing transmission wear
    • The Fortens Advance+ models features the DuraMatch™ Plus3, a 3-speed Extended Function Transmission with Dynamic Auto Deceleration System, throttle response management and Auto Speed Hydraulics
  • Oil immersed brakes contribute to reduced maintenance and extended truck dependability
  • The maintenance free Hyster Stability Mechanism (HSM) enhances lateral stability without compromising uneven surface travel
  • Complete cowl-to-counterweight service access contributes to rapid, efficient maintenance. Simplified layout of wiring and hydraulics offers greater access to components, which decreases service time for unscheduled repairs and regular maintenance
  • Hassle-Free hydraulic systems featuring Leak-free O-ring face seal fittings enhance reliability and non-mechanical, Hall-Effect sensors and switches are designed to outlast the life of the truck
  • To match the performance to the application there are a number of options including advanced hydraulic and cooling system options
