The Fortis line of sit-down counterbalanced lift trucks from Hyster is designed to provide high dependability at a low operating cost. This line of hard-working everyday lift trucks features customizable applications and ergonomics that result in high productivity and superior operator comfort. The trucks have a durable powertrain design, industrial strength electronics, efficient cooling, and enhanced hydraulics. The vehicles are available in cushion tire (S80-120FT) and pneumatic tire (H80-120FT) configurations and with a choice of three preconfigured powertrain bundles. The trucks can additionally be tailored to meet the demands of specific applications and working environments, which results in improved productivity.
The lift trucks' onboard Pacesetter VSM computers, patented DuraMatch transmission systems, and Auto Deceleration Systems are used to optimize lift truck performance and reliability. These advanced features have been shown to reduce operating costs by an average of over $2,400 per year, according to the company.
Hyster counterbalanced lift trucks also provide ergonomic features that ensure maximum operator comfort and productivity during a shift. Repositioned foot pedals, a fatigue-reducing operator compartment designed to isolate vibrations, and easily adjustable operator settings help reduce costs related to fatigue.
Maintenance time is also minimized with a CANbus communication system that's designed to provide real-time diagnostics and reduce wiring and electrical connections. State-of-the-art onboard diagnostics and easy access to serviceable parts also help reduce repair time and extensive part swapping.
