Hyster Company introduced the fork laser and the fork camera, two attachment options for the Hyster ZR Reach truck. Designed to increase operator productivity, these attachments help limit costs associated with product and rack damage, while also improving operator safety within the warehouse.
The fork laser emits a beam that provides lift truck operators with a guide for correct fork placement when retrieving product. The life span of the fork laser attachment exceeds 10,000 hours, and each battery pack lasts up to forty hours on a full charge. Especially useful in environments with low visibility, the laser can be displayed as either a dot beam or line beam, depending upon operator preference.
Hyster also announced the rollout of the fork camera option, which provides a "fork eye view" at elevated heights. This attachment not only allows the operator to retrieve and replace product more efficiently but also helps to reduce workplace accidents caused by inaccurate placement. Mounted to the fork carriage, the camera sends a digital image to a 7.5-inch color monitor located in the top left corner of the operator compartment.
