Adaptalift Hyster unveils its tough new electric counterbalance J4.0-5.0XN, part of the company’s energy efficient JXN range.

Designed to be powerful and robust, this electric truck provides low cost operation for the most demanding applications including metal fabricators, timber processors and handlers, beverage and bottling companies, breweries, paper manufacturers, pulp processors and automotive manufacturers amongst others.

"As the price of fuel continues to rise and operations are increasingly sensitive to environmental concerns, high capacity, electric powered, counterbalance forklifts will become more and more prevalent," says Adaptalift Hyster GM - Retail Sales Paul Bennett.

"With the addition of the J4.0-5.0XN, Adaptalift Hyster’s energy efficient electric truck range now comes in capacities ranging from 1.5 to 5T."

The new Hyster J4.0-5.0XN series incorporates the superb features of the J-XN range including the ECO-eLo and HiP settings for optimum environmental performance balance.

The Energy Low setting (eLo) function gives leading class low energy consumption while maintaining a competitive performance.


There is also the High Performance setting (HiP) which maximises performance of trucks and is the most productive truck on the market.

AC traction and hoist motors give a reliable performance and the IP65 rated drive axle with maintenance free disc brakes means that the new electric truck delivers excellence both indoors and outdoors.

Compact dimensions and manoeuvrability are achieved by the combination of the dual drive front axle and Zero turn radius steer axle, which allows the driver to turn on the spot and achieve competitive isle stacking widths of as low as 4,161mm (4 tonnes).

Options for the new J4.0-5.0XN include an easily adjustable armrest with integrated touchPoint mini levers, steering wheel with telescopic adjustment and memory tilt, Monotrol pedal, return to set tilt incorporated into the armrest, side battery removal, full or partial cabin with optional heater, impact sensor and carriage with integral side shift.

Adaptalift Hyster also offers a high standard specification with superior ergonomics and high dependability.

"The superb serviceability of the machines means there are 1000 hour service intervals and low maintenance costs as well as extended battery shift life and an array of options to make sure businesses can easily select the right truck for the specific application," Bennett says.

"Hyster’s range of electric trucks shows it’s possible to achieve the highest productivity while also finding a balance of optimum performance with the lowest energy consumption in one truck."
