Dynamic Stability System (DSS)

The maintenance-free Dynamic Stability System DSS solution reduces the likelihood of tip overs and reminds forklift operators of safe operating practices by monitoring operating conditions and automatically limiting truck functionality when potentially unsafe conditions are detected.*

To take your operational safety to the next level, pair DSS with a professional grade forklift training program and optional Hyster Tracker telematics. When you start operators with a solid training foundation, put Hyster DSS technology in play, and enable supervisors with Hyster Tracker to monitor operator performance in real time, you have the right tools to improve safety in your work environment.

Take Operational Safety To the Next Level - Hyster DSS

* While lift truck systems support safe operation and help minimize the potential for tip overs, proper operation of the lift truck and 100% full-time utilization of the truck’s seat belt are the primary and best means of keeping the truck and operator upright and safe. Refer to the operator and service manuals for proper operation and maintenance.

  • Seat and step are close together, making entry and exit easier 
  • Large step provides a greater foothold for the forklift operator
  • Flip-up armrests are included with optional suspension seats
  • Large floor space
  • Dynamic seat adjustment provides up to 25% more forward & backward seat flexibility than the leading competitor*
  • Greater head and shoulder clearance than the leading competitor
  • Foot-activated, hand-released parking brake is designed to tuck out of the way when applied, enabling unobstructed entry and exit
  • Standard, full-color touch-screen display

* Compared to Toyota 8 Series 8FGU25 model. Competitive comparison data validated through internal testing.

  • A low dash and a wide forklift mast give the operator excellent visibility of the fork tips
  • High-strength laminated glass roof provides an unobstructed upward view 
  • The wide viewing window through the mast enhances visibility of forks and load

The robust  Yanmar industrial engine is designed to create increased service intervals. Other standard components such as tapered roller bearings, O-ring face seals, and double-sealed electrical connectors require less frequent maintenance. Optional components are available to further reduce maintenance time and cost:

  • On-demand cooling with reversing fan
  • On-demand hydraulic system
  • Wet disc brakes
  • Advanced Duramatch™ electronic transmission

  • Rear-Facing Camera with corresponding LCD rear view display
  • Spotlight and pedestrian awareness light options, mounting positions, colors and control methods
  • Optional shelf height selector with one-touch activation
  • Slim, LED, mast mounted work lights
  • Optional LPG tank bracket interlock

Forklift safety is critical in the materials handling industry. That’s why we’ve engineered the Hyster® Dynamic Stability System (DSS) into every A Series model. The innovative system helps support confidence and promote safe operating practices for forklift operators. Click through each aspect to learn more.

Lateral forklift stability system

DSS Lateral Stability

Reduces lift truck lean in turns, helping to improve lateral stability. The innovative steer axle design allows for superior travel over uneven surfaces. The system is 100% maintenance free, with no controller, sensors or wiring.

High-lift traction control

DSS traction control

Limits truck speed when the carriage is raised above the height threshold. Operator will receive a visual indicator on the truck display and an audible alert.

High-lift tilt control

DSS tilt control

Limits tilt speed and forward tilt range when the carriage is raised above the height threshold while carrying a load. Operator will receive a visual indicator on the lift truck display and an audible alert.

Corner control

DSS corner control

Dynamically limits speed when driving around corners, based on how tightly the truck is turning. Operator will receive a visual indicator on the forklift display and an audible alert.
