Hysters launches advanced VNA

Hyster has launched its C-Series turret truck, a VNA it believes is the most advanced on the market today.
Hyster says that the new man-up turret truck is set to demonstrate how latest innovation can produce outstanding benefits for the customer.

Hyster says that it is designed to work in demanding operations with minimal operating clearances, the C-Series can be tailored to suit a vast array of applications and tasks; from pallet put-aways, picking and transporting to staging in high density storage warehouses. The range consists of seven models and a variety of configurations.

Hyster have already built 28 of these trucks for endurance, thermal and stability tests as well as field tests in customer applications. Hyster says that every feature of the C-series is designed to enhance operating efficiency. Powerful AC, high-capacity traction and hydraulic motors, deliver fast travel and lift-speeds to maximise load-handling throughput. 80 volt models use two 15 kw hydraulic motors, providing a total of 30 kw of power, which it claims is more than anyone else in the industry. The hydraulic lift motors also allow simultaneous operation of truck functions such as travel and auxiliary lifting and lowering, traverse and pivot control.

One of the innovative features of the new Hyster C-series is the narrow turret head, with a thickness of only 210mm, designed to handle a base capacity of 1590kg. This allows the trucks to operate in the smallest aisles or run in aisles with greater side operating clearances. Built into the turret attachment is a unique integral pantograph which eliminates the need for double-biting. This provides up to 250mm of additional stroke and improves the traversing speed of the forks.
