HYSTER has introduced the Fortis line of lift trucks and say the line represents a transformation in the way lift trucks are designed, built, and acquired.
Incorporating proven design processes and systems, each lift truck is offered with multiple powertrain configurations to meet specific application requirements and business objectives and to optimise productivity, dependability, and cost of operations.
The Fortis family of lift trucks, which covers a capacity range of 900kg to 7,000kg, offers both cushion and pneumatic tyre classes, with multiple engine choices consisting of gas, LP, and diesel.
In head-to-head comparisons with similar trucks, the manufacturing and design advances of the Fortis series are shown to decrease downtime by up to 30 percent and save on operating costs.
The Hyster electronically controlled powertrain, CANbus system industrial strength electronics, advanced cooling systems, and reliable hydraulics all help to improve dependability and lower operating costs in all applications.
The Fortis concept simplifies lift truck purchases with a tiered system of preconfigured engine-transmission bundles. This allows users to choose from a variety of packages to maximise purchasing power and increase overall return on investment.
With the choices of performance transmissions, hydraulic controls and cooling system options, the customisable Fortis lift trucks provide the highest quality of performance for almost any application.
The Fortis series includes a Pacesetter VSM industrial onboard computer for adjustable performance to maximise uptime.
The DuraMatch transmission systems include such features as the Auto Deceleration System, controlled rollback on ramps, controlled power reversals and auto-speed hydraulics with automatic inching control.
Innovations include repositioned foot pedals, fatigue-reducing operator compartments designed to isolate vibrations, and easily adjustable operator settings.
