New Hyster Reach Truck Built to do More with Less

Hyster Company announced a new lift truck designed to answer the call for high-density, high-throughput warehouse environments.

Available in 3,000- to 4,500-pound load capacities and single or double reach capabilities, the Hyster® N30-45ZR/ZDR narrow aisle reach truck delivers reduced energy consumption and faster cycle times to help warehouses move large inventories efficiently.

  • Faster cycle times: industry leading lift and lower speeds reportedly enable the Hyster reach truck to move an extra pallet per hour compared to leading competitors according to a field study, increasing productivity by as much as 7 percent per truck, per shift;
  • Greater energy efficiency: the same study revealed the Hyster reach truck reportedly uses up to 20 percent less energy over the same duty cycle compared to competitive offerings, reducing energy costs and charging frequency for more time moving product and less time idle at the charging station; and
  • Simple, cost-effective service: reduced scheduled maintenance compared to leading competitors could save up to $2,500 per truck per year, based on expected technician labor rates. No tools are required to access traction and hydraulic motors, and mast wear plugs enable adjustment without shims, gauges or disassembly, for faster maintenance and adjustment when service is necessary.

A deep lineup of industry exclusive features could help operators fight fatigue and work efficiently all shift long. Hyster® Intelligent Ride is a suspended floor system that reduces up to 60 percent of shocks and vibrations transmitted to the operator, compared to a conventional mat.

The exclusive operator sensing system incorporates a pedal-free design for maximum freedom to adjust stance for lasting comfort. Fore and aft stance with automotive steering in both directions offers natural steering familiarity that could help train new operators faster and improve performance.

A wide mast opening, lowered reach mechanism, lowered front frame profile and notched load backrest all add up to 33 percent greater visibility through the mast compared to leading competitors.
