Hyster Company introduces , the next level of AC-powered lift trucks. Hyster® lift trucks offer maximum performance, superior , energy efficiency and lower maintenance costs thanks to the use of electric AC , power. Balancing experience and cutting-edge research, Hyster AC-powered lift , trucks deliver numerous advantages over industry standard DC-powered and , internal combustion lift trucks. Free of brushes and commutators, Hyster , Company’s fully AC-powered lift trucks allow maximum production and reliability. , The lack of wearable parts eliminates costs and downtime associated with motor , brush cleaning, checks and replacements. Energy consumption is also reduced due , to improved traction performance and variable electric on-demand & nbsp, steering. An AC brushless hoist motor powers the advanced hydraulic & nbsp, system to reduce maintenance and increase uptime. The hydraulic system , contributes to increased performance and energy savings through the use of & nbsp, powered and regenerative lowering. The system supports precise load handling & nbsp, with greater performance and less noise while improving battery efficiency & nbsp, through regenerative electricity.
