With their new series of heavy forklift trucks, Hyundai is targeting a new customer base. Various businesses, from the natural stone and concrete industries, to the steel business, the railway sector and the transportation of heavy goods in the ports are all working with and relying on heavy duty machines. The power and efficiency provided by the units keep cost of operation low and offer the best conditions for economical work. These kinds of equipment could excel in the most tough environments.
The Cummins diesel engines ranging from 162 horse-power to 250hp provides the required power on all of the large capacity models. TierIII emission standards are met with the 6 cylinder engines. These models could take the truck up to a speed of 35 km/h. It provides for a high climbing ability on steep slopes and rough terrain and offers great acceleration as well.
The operator can use a switch to be able to select 1 of 2 driving modes. When in "Power" mode, full power is available for work on heavy loads or difficult terrain. In the "STP" mode, the trucks can save a lot of fuel during light-duty work. Moreover, simply by pressing a switch, the operator can automatically maintain a chosen speed without touching the accelerator pedal. This is another fuel saving function. The forklift's fully automatic transmission gently shifts through the gears, making the equipment easy to maneuver and comfortable to utilize.
The well-ventilated cabin offers a comfortable and spacious working place. The cabin combines high performance with fatigue-free work. The powerful heating and air conditioning system helps ensure the operator is comfortable inside. The cab was ergonomically designed to offer a bird's eye view of all of the controls, in addition to the unit's overall safety. A CD player and an MP3 player put the finishing touches on giving the enjoyable atmosphere which Hyundai machinery are reputed to have.
