H40-70A Series IC Forklifts Lift 4K to 7K Pounds

Sept. 22, 2023
Hyster's model A series of IC forklifts offer a lifting capacity of 4,000 to 7,000 lb. and provide the Dynamic Stability System (DSS) for optimal safety.

Hyster Company releases the first models built on its all-new A Series platform, the Hyster H40-70A series. These 4,000 to 7,000-lb. (1,814 to 3,175 kg) capacity lift trucks offer ergonomics, low TCO, and safety features designed to bolster confidence and productivity, including the innovative Dynamic Stability System (DSS).


The A Series is a line of forklift trucks manufactured using the company's A+ Logic design philosophy. A+ Logic is a scalable approach that begins with the strong base of the A Series truck platform and allows customers to choose the options they need from a fully integrated set of scalable and adjustable features based on their unique application.


Standard on all H40-70A models and completely maintenance-free, DSS uses sensors to continually monitor truck status. When it detects the truck exceeding designated thresholds, DSS automatically implements measures like limiting truck speed and hydraulic function, to help minimize the risk of forward and sideways tip-overs. It gives visual indicators, audible alerts, and automatic performance adjustments for stable travel.


The operator compartment enables easy entry and exit with a lowered seat, increased floor space, and generous head and shoulder clearance. A low dash and wide mast design provide excellent forward visibility, and an optional high-strength laminated glass roof offers an unobstructed upward view to help operators place loads at height.
