Hyster Forklifts Honored with Design Award

Hyster Company announces the Hyster® H40-70A forklift series is a winner of the prestigious 2023 GOOD DESIGN® Award. The configurable internal combustion engine-powered forklifts are the first in the A Series, which offers robust ergonomic features, a low total cost of ownership and an innovative technology engineered to help reduce the likelihood of forklift tip overs.

The H40-70A models, which are available with 4,000-to-7,000-pound lift capacities, are designed around a singular base configuration derived from direct feedback from operators, managers, technicians, safety coordinators and other professionals. From there, operations can tailor additional features, creating a forklift based on their specific application.

To support operator comfort and productivity all shift long, the H40-70A models are designed for ergonomics and convenience. In particular, the operator compartment enables easy entry and exit with a lowered seat, contoured hood, increased floor space, and generous head and shoulder clearance. A foot-activated, hand-released parking brake requires less effort than a hand-applied brake to minimize operator lean and back strain, while dynamic seat adjustment provides up to 25 percent more forward and backward seat adjustability than the leading competitive model.

Several features help boost visibility, including a low dash and wide mast design that provide excellent forward visibility. A high-strength laminated glass roof is available to provide operators with an unobstructed upward view to help place loads at height.

The forklifts are also available with the Hyster Dynamic Stability System (DSS), a solution that continually monitors truck performance to help reduce the likelihood of forward and sideways tip overs and reinforces operating best practices. When it detects the truck exceeding designated thresholds while carrying a load, DSS automatically implements measures like limiting truck speed and tilt range. None of the DSS sensors require maintenance, and the trucks’ durable components and extended service intervals are designed to help control maintenance spend and bolster reliability and uptime.
