Latest lifttruck technology

The current series 8-16 tons heavy duty forklifts consists of 8th generation machines, offering the latest advances in lifttruck technology. This means the forklifts are capable of lifting the full capacity up to 6200mm lift height, with nominal lifting capacities including side shift carriage. Even above 6200mm lift height the de-ration has been kept to a minimum. The Vista mast is available in a two or three stage version, using a highly efficient hydraulic system with ‘Power on Demand’ by means of ‘Variable Displacement Pump(s) (VDP).

Every model in this series features the renowned Hyster Vista Cab, providing excellent ergonomics and a superior visibility, thanks to the minimum use of steel parts. Inside there’s a fully adjustable, full suspension driver’s seat, as well as a fully adjustable steering column. Climate control is available as an option.

The following table lists the model numbers for North and South America (‘US’) and the rest of the world (‘European’). A ‘-‘ indicates no equivalent model number exists.

Powerful diesel engine

The 8-16 ton heavy duty forklift is equipped with a Cummins QSB 6.7 diesel engine featuring:

      • 6-cylinder in-line industrial engine, with 6.7 liter capacity;
      • Charge-air cooling and waste gate turbocharger;
      • Max 116 kW (156 Hp) output at only 2500rpm, offering extra durability for long periods of peak power operation;
      • Smooth torque of 597 Nm at 1500 rpm providing excellent acceleration and lugging power.

The engine is very easy to service through centralized, PC accessible diagnostics and unobstructed access to key components thanks to the tilting cab and gull-wing hood. The forklift truck has oil-immersed brakes, which contribute to increased productivity and reduced ownership costs.

Automatic transmission

The powertrain is connected to the S.O.H. TE10 3-speed autoshift transmission (for XM models, also with air operated drum brakes) or the Z.F. 3WG161 3-speed autoshift transmission (for XM Advance models, also with oil-immersed wet disc brakes) and the AxleTech PRC-425 (H8-12XM-6) or PRC-775 (H13-16XM-6) drive axle, which provide excellent sideways stability.

The H8-16XM series is designed to operate in ambient temperatures of -18°C up to 50°C in normal applications, or up to 45°C for heavy duty operations.
