These newly developed models are significant in that Hyundai expanded its forklift production range into these capacities to meet market demand for high-quality large diesel powered lift trucks that have access to excellent service technicians, plus they take advantage of a strong Australian currency on the global market.
Major characteristics of this new Hyundai diesel range are superior performance such as braking power, easier driving / maintenance, and excellent economical efficiency with optimal application of driving systems.
Particularly, ECM (Engine Control Module) of its electronic turbo charged engine instantly checks and analyses troubles and conditions of the engine using an ‘Electronic Service Tool’. Hence, quick maintenance is enabled when required.
Moreover, environment-friendly engines are applied. Maintenance cost is reduced and durability is increased by adopting Hyundai’s unique wet brake system that provides responsive, durable braking power and semi-permanent lifetime.
Maintenance work is easier with the application of a tilting-type cabin which completely opens the side of the driver's seat.
Overall maintenance and technical support for these vehicles in Australia is of the highest calibre. Managing Director of Flexilift Australia, Mr Stephen Ritchie, is recognised as arguably the most knowledgeable technical expert in the Australian forklift market.
He heads a team of technicians for the Hyundai forklift brand in Australia which currently has a calculated price advantage on the domestic market.
Because Hyundai lift trucks are brought into Australia on a Just-In-Time arrangement as they are purchased, customers are able to take advantage of the well-performed Australian dollar against the greenback and the savings are passed on.
This is in contrast to any agents which have stockpiled equipment from months ago when the Australian dollar was much weaker.
These new large diesel forklifts are the results of accumulated know-how of Hyundai. With dramatic improvement in performance, driver's convenience and design, these are next generation Hyundai forklifts that will replace current models.
Full-automatic transmission gives easy, convenient handling and soft, smooth shifting. The operator can select two kinds of automatic modes.
By utilising a mast tilting angle of 15º forward and 12º backward, an operator can perform loading and unloading jobs safely and rapidly.
The unit can achieve 33.1% gradeability and a travel speed (unloaded) of 33.7km/h as it is powered by a high-output engine and can maintain these levels on most tough terrains or slopes.
A hypoid type planetary reduction drive axle smoothly delivers desired torque to the drive wheels.
With a wider view mast, any unit in the range can be operated with increased safety and accuracy. An easy-to-operate parking switch makes it possible to exert excellent parking power (a parking brake negative spring type is applied).
An important source of comfort for operators is leg room, and these units afford a lot of this in a wide cabin room and easy access.
Responsive operating control levers require only minimal operator effort for precise, safe and productive control (3-Lever Standard / 45-Lever option). Instrument panel switches are conveniently to the operator’s right console for easy operation.
Large rear view mirrors allow the driver to work with a high level of awareness of what is around the vehicle at all angles.
Within the driver cab, environment control is facilitated by a high-output air conditioner and heater mounted on the upper side of the cabin to ensure there is wide room in the cabin.
All gauges are user-friendly and the monitor panel is water resistant. An adjustable steering column handle is adjustable to suit the operator’s body shape. An easily adjustable suspension seat is designed with human engineering in mind for extreme comfort.
Ergonomically positioned pedals are convenient for the driver while operating the equipment. A double type wiper mounted on the front and rear side of the cabin provides excellent visibility even in rains.
The unit also has a highly durable carriage made of high tensile structural steel which has a excellent durability. Working in narrow spaces is easy because the width of the carriage is narrower than overall width of the vehicle. The safety overhead guard meets EEC and ANSI regulations and protects the operator during hazardous jobs.
A cabin tilting automatic system makes servicing of all power train components quick and easy. An electrically assisted hydraulic actuated cylinder tilts the operator cabin to left side about 65º for easy access to truck components.
Other features include a muffler rain cover, durable steering axle, a fitted protector for hub bolts, large footboard and handle, electrically monitored air quality, automatic self locking, easy check oil level gauge, central electric controllers, large engine hood and an easy-change double air cleaner.
