New Hyster 4-5T Counterbalance Electric


As the 4-5 tonne market segment shows an increase in demand for tough electric forklifts, Adaptalift Hyster is excited to announce the newest addition to its energy efficient J-XN range, with the tough new electric counterbalance J4.0-5.0XN.

This powerful robust electric truck provides low cost of operation and is designed for the most demanding applications such as metal fabricators, timber processors and handlers, beverage and bottling companies, breweries, paper manufacturers, pulp processors and automotive manufacturers amongst others.

As the price of fuel continues to rise and operations are increasingly sensitive to environmental concerns, high capacity, electric powered, counterbalance forklifts will become more and more revalent in a wide range of applications. “Hyster’s range of electric trucks shows it’s possible to achieve the highest productivity while also finding a balance of optimum performance with the lowest energy consumption in one truck”, said Paul Bennett,  adaptalift Hyster GM - Retail Sales. Hyster electric trucks contribute to low cost of ownership by delivering extraordinary dependability and driver productivity. There is also the benefit of low energy consumption as well as low maintenance costs and serviceability. With the addition of the J4.0-5.0XN Adaptalift Hyster’s energy efficient electric truck range now comes in capacities ranging from 1.5 to 5T.

The new Hyster J4.0-5.0XN series incorporates the superb features of the J-XN range including the ECO-eLo and HiP settings for optimum environmental performance balance. The Energy Low setting (eLo) function gives class leading lowest energy consumption whilst maintaining competitive performance. There is also the High Performance setting (HiP) which maximises performance of trucks and is the most productive truck on the market. AC traction and hoist motors give reliable, positive performance and the IP65 rated drive axle with maintenance free disc brakes means that the new electric truck delivers excellent performance both indoors and outdoors.

Compact dimensions and extraordinary manoeuvrability are achieved by the combination of the dual drive front axle and Zero turn radius steer axle, which allows the driver to turn on the spot and achieve competitive aisle stacking widths of as low as 4,161mm (4 tonnes). This unique design has been carried through the J-XN range because it allows the best manoeuvrability without compromising on the operator ergonomics such as foot space. Options for the new J4.0-5.0XN include easily adjustable armrest with integrated TouchPoint mini levers, steering wheel with telescopic adjustment and memory tilt, Monotrol pedal, return to set tilt incorporated into the armrest, side battery removal, full or partial cabin with optional heater, impact sensor and carriage with integral side shift.

Adaptalift Hyster offers a high standard specification with superior ergonomics and high dependability. The superb serviceability of the machines means there are 1000 hour service intervals and low maintenance costs as well as extended battery shift life and an array of options to make sure businesses can easily select the right truck for their specific application.
