Hyster has announced the addition of oil-immersed wet brakes to its
J2.00-3.20 XM ACX electric counterbalanced models. The series also offers Hyster exclusive electro-hydraulic control options: a choice of TouchPoint™ mini-levers or TouchControl™ joystick.
This Hyster Electric series has already established a reputation in the lift truck market for its exceptional standards of dependability, low cost of operation and superb ergonomics. The latest enhancements will respond to the needs of an even wider range of customers, where the most demanding applications call for the toughest trucks.
Tough trucks for tough conditions
A new drive axle is a standard feature on the J2.00-3.20XM ACX series, incorporating virtually maintenance free oil immersed brakes which also provide lower brake pedal effort for the driver. Completely sealed inside the transaxle, the brakes are ideally suited for operating in wet, dirty or corrosive environments such as those found in ports, fisheries and small scale chemical applications dealing with harmful or abrasive substances.
Enjoying dependability and low operating costs
With 1,000 hour service intervals, the brushless AC traction and hoist motors are major contributory factors to reduced maintenance costs. Auto-regenerative braking increases battery life, saves on brake use and reduces operator fatigue.
A built in diagnostic capability allows maintenance to be planned in, giving increased uptime. In addition, there is an optional, automatic start-up checklist with password protection, which reduces truck damage and introduces greater operator responsibility and improved safety levels.
The J2.00-3.20 XM ACX series provides customers with the reassurance of Hyster's unmatched reputation for lift truck durability. It incorporates such manufacturing design features as a strong one-piece frame, developed using FEA (Finite Element Analysis), and a highly robust steer axle.
Advanced ergonomic features to inspire productivity
With its enhanced e-hydraulics options, the J2.00-3.20XM ACX series offers a new standard in ergonomics to inspire operator productivity and reduce fatigue.
Users have a choice of three hydraulic control configurations to match the needs of their operators. The TouchPointTM mini-levers provide the ultimate fingertip precision control, while the TouchControlTM joystick enables all hydraulic functions to be operated with minimum operator effort. Both these control options are built into the e-hydraulic seat. The standard configuration comprises traditional, manual seat- side levers, which are fitted with an adjustable full suspension seat. All these systems are designed to create maximum productivity with minimum operator effort.
Everything in the cab is designed to keep the operator alert and fresh. The dash display with LCD indication provides high readability even in low light conditions, promoting safety and reducing eye strain. The dash display also delivers diagnostic data immediately to the operator, via the truck's CANbus system.
J2.00-3.20 XM ACX models are smooth and easy to operate, thanks to the use of AC motive power, which leads to faster handling throughput, throughout the operator's shift. There are four pre-programmed performance modes. An optional PIN code system means operators can be given access only to the performance level which suits their ability and experience.
Application matched performance and battery shift life
AC drive and hydraulic motors on the J2.00-3.20 XM ACX series not only provide smooth, direct traction control, they also provide control of the hoist functions, delivering fast acceleration and torque for high shift productivity. Users can match performance to application via a choice of extended battery shift life or performance control options.
Compact dimensions, Demand-Sense steering and an ultra compact steering wheel give these trucks impressive manoeuvrability and the capability to operate in tight aisle widths.
Tough trucks and strong partners
With the J2.00-3.20 XM ACX series customers not only get a tough truck designed for demanding operations, but they also have the reassurance of knowing that it's backed by Strong Partners: Hyster, the world's only global, full-line supplier of materials handling equipment and its extensive network of strong, independent dealers providing world-class customer care.
