“Breakthrough” 8T Electric Forklift Previewed by Hyster


Author : Molokini

Hyster Company has previewed its forthcoming J8.0XN forklift truck, claiming it is the first time an 8 tonne electric truck can deliver ‘near ICE performance’. Achieving 100% charge in just two hours, it has the endurance to support three shift operations.

“The new electric J8.0XN provides similar performance to the Hyster® LPG equivalent in most normal paper, timber and steel applications, giving businesses the option for zero emissions and quieter operations,” says Phil Ireland, Senior Product Strategy Manager.

“It is an 8 tonne capacity forklift that will suit companies with large fleets and will be particularly interesting for timber firms that produce their own electricity,” he says. “The truck combines Lithium ION with high voltage systems and superior motor technology.”

The Li ION battery is large enough to ensure long endurance, giving a stable performance over a full shift before recharge. From flat, the battery can be fully charged in two hours and will sustain high endurance levels during its operational life.

The J8.0XN was previewed at the Hyster® HUB event held in Weeze, Germany in October 2016 where international press and VIPs witnessed a comparison between the J8.0XN and an equivalent ICE (internal combustion engine) truck.

“The new J8.0XN is faster to accelerate over the first 15 metres and lifts at the same speed as the Hyster® ICE model,” he says. There is a top speed of 21.4km/h (unladen) and 18km/h (laden)which Hyster claims is a full 4km/hr more than the nearest competitor, while noise levels at the operator’sis just 73 dB(A).

The initial cost of the truck, battery and charger is higher, but in the right applications, the overall cost of operation over the life of the truck is reported to be significantly less.
