The Hyster® XM series, available with either diesel, LPG or dual fuel engines, give maximum up time that businesses can depend on, while offering a continued low cost of ownership.
“The XT series is perfectly suited to the majority of everyday applications and we anticipate that the wide appeal of this machine will make it a popular choice,” says Karen Calver, Product Strategy Manager for Hyster® in Europe. “The addition of the XT series to the Hyster® portfolio gives businesses even greater opportunity to specify a forklift that meets their operational needs and their budget.
Power and Reliability
Built using proven, high quality Hyster® components, the XM series offers operators a long and reliable performance. Featuring industrial engines, power is delivered efficiently over a 10,000-hour design life, helping to reduce lifetime costs.
The benefits of the Yanmar diesel engine include super quick glow plugs allowing the engine to start quickly and reliably under cold conditions, delivering a cleaner exhaust by advancing the fuel injection timing based on water temperature.
For the comfort of the user and others within the working area, the engines used within the XT series are all fully isolated from the frame and axle and prevent direct transmission of noise, keeping noise exposure to a minimum for operators. Vibration levels are also lowered, and with a full suspension seat which can be adjusted to suit the driver’s height and weight, operators can enjoy a comfortable and easy operation and remain productive throughout a shift. To help further maintain productivity, the XM series trucks also offer well-placed controls and a large low step to make it easy for operators to get on and off the truck.
Loads can be moved quickly thanks to powerful tractive and hydraulic systems, which are fitted with O-ring face seal fittings to prevent oil leaks. With excellent rigidity and low settling times at elevation, the Hyster® masts give precise and confident operation over a long service life.
The XM series provides an opportunity for businesses to tailor the truck in order to meet their specific site challenges. Options for customising the XM truck are available straight from the factory and include traction speed control, rear drive handle, light kits, pedestrian awareness light, a side-shifting fork positioner and telemetry systems. The integral side-shift option allows accurate load placement with minimal loss of capacity while the travel speed limit option does not impact truck acceleration or hoist speed. Where attachments are needed, 4th function hydraulics with interlock allow the use of clamping attachments. A full, flexible range of cabins can also be added and removed from machines easily and are available ex-factory or once in service.
Easy to Service
Servicing the XM series is simple, and with all Hyster parts readily available, this helps to drive efficiency and keep costs low. There is a 500-hour service interval with easy service access and simplified layout of wiring and hydraulics offering greater access to components and decreasing service time for regular maintenance. In addition, the high quality filtration system, robust clutch packs, sealed electrical connectors, O-ring face seals and hall-effect sensors all contribute to reducing servicing requirements and help owners enjoy a low cost of ownership.
