Stage V engines for Hyster ® Fortens ® Lift Trucks
5 September 2018
Hyster Europe has revealed that Stage V engines will be available to order in EU and other regulated markets on several of its lift truck series’ in Q4 2018, including models in its flagship Fortens ® IC range. “As part of our commitment to offering customers 360-degree solutions, Hyster ® lift trucks already provide a range of power options and different engines to meet various specific application needs, says Matthew Allen, Solutions Manager - Counterbalance and Big Trucks for Hyster Europe. “However, the latest engine developments are great news for customers as they will be able to specify Hyster ® products which both provide greater fuel efficiencies and reinforce their green credentials.”
From January 2019, Stage V emissions regulations will affect both diesel and LPG engines from 19-56kW and above 130kW. From 2020, they will also affect 56-130kW engines. In response to the new regulations, the engines for several Hyster ® lift truck models with 1.5 to 3.5 tonne lift capacity will be Stage V compliant from early 2019 “Though the engines are being updated, operations can still expect the same reliability, performance and all-round benefits from their Hyster ® lift trucks,” says Matthew. “For instance, those using a 2 to 3 tonne capacity Hyster ® Fortens ® will continue to enjoy a low cost of ownership, optimal uptime, options to enhance the driver environment, and various solutions for industry specific needs including fleet management.”
For Stage V compliance, the diesel Fortens ® Advance Plus with a Kubota 2.4L engine will be available with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) to deliver high power with low fuel consumption, low noise levels and even lower emissions.
