Hyster Co. has added a new vehicle, the S30-40FTS, to its Fortis line of lift trucks. With capacities of 3,000 to 4,000 pounds, this new lift truck reduces operating costs while offering superior dependability, productivity and ergonomics, according to its manufacturer.
The operating cost reductions come from matching the right engine with the proper transmission for specific applications. Multitiered engine-transmission configurations create efficient power trains, offering excellent fuel efficiencies and productivity. The increased dependability of the S30-40FTS lift trucks comes in part from many different systems on the unit, from the new drive axle and transmission, to the redesigned hydraulic system. The electrical systems have also been upgraded for improved reliability, using solid-state magnetic Hall Effect sensors that have no mechanical connection and are fully sealed from the environment. IP66 sealed wiring connectors used throughout the truck keep water and other contaminants from entering the system.
Several optional features for the S30-40FTS models boost productivity. Electro-hydraulic controls are integrated into the seat armrest to reduce driver fatigue, increase driver comfort, and enhance the user's ability to operate the lifting functions efficiently. The user may choose the optional joystick or minilever fingertip hydraulic controls. Ergonomic features, including a lowered step height for easy access, create a more productive work environment. Other advances include a smaller steering wheel with standard steer knob and improved seat design for enhanced comfort while driving in reverse.
The S30-40FTS lift truck reduces service time requirements by up to 12 percent with an electronic monitoring and in-dash warning system that reduces daily service needs. To make engine components accessible, it features a one-piece hood and lift-out floor plates that do not require tools for removal, and a cleaner, more accessible under-hood layout of wire and hydraulic hose routings.
