Rugged, Versatile and Productive Forklift Trucks

More than 80 years of heritage building tough forklift trucks is brought to bear in the H550-700HD/S forklift, available in seven models with 55,000 to 70,000 lbs. of lifting capacity for use in applications:

  • Applications such as:
    • Steel manufacturing
    • Sea ports
    • General cargo
    • Mining
    • Stevedoring

Innovative Engine Technology

This Big Truck series comes standard with a Tier 4 Final Cummins QSB 6.7L engine rated at 270hp (peak horsepower) with a ZF WG 211 5-speed powershift transmission.

  • The H550-700HD/S series with Tier 4 Final engine features:
    • integrated drivetrain with emission reduction package that includes cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)
    • selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system for nitrogen oxide (NOX) reduction
    • diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) for particulate matter removal and a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) delivery system.

Together these features may help increase efficiency by delivering as much as 25% lower fuel consumption over Tier 3 products.

Intelligent Design

Engineered for tough applications, the new series is designed for long load centers, wide loads and heavy duty-cycle conditions. Coil rams are available in a number of configurations for steel industry and port applications.
Performance optimization technologies such as selectable ECO-modes, idle management and on-demand cooling, work harmoniously to reduce fuel consumption on these trucks. A heavy duty cooling package ensures low operating temperatures to assist in providing a longer life for hydraulic pumps and other major components.

All H550-700HD/S series feature a load sensing on-demand hydraulic system to deliver flow only when required. Variable displacement pumps capable of more oil displacement, even at low pump speeds, mean the engine runs at lower speeds, extending the life of components while operating more quietly. The system consumes up to 10% less fuel than a typical fixed displacement hydraulic system while producing less heat and noise.

Serviceability & Ergonomics

To simplify maintenance and daily checks, the series is constructed with dual gull-wing hoods and an optional tilting cab, which provide easy access to the powertrain and hydraulic components. The new series also offers a low profile carriage with chains located outside of the mast channels enabling outstanding visibility of fork tips as well as rearward visibility.

  • Tier 4 Final Key Features on the H550-700HD/S Series Trucks:
    • Tier 4 Final Cummins QSB 6.7L engine with SCR, DOC and DEF
    • ZF WG 211 5-speed powershift transmission
    • Water-cooled variable geometry turbocharger (VGT) design combines the benefit of both a small and large turbocharger in a single unit, enabling Hyster® Tier 4 Final engines to achieve significantly improved response compared to Tier 3 engines.
    • On-demand hydraulics: The unique variable displacement pump design enables the load sending hydraulic system to only provide the required hydraulic flow to do the work.
    • The Idle Management System is another exclusive feature designed to save fuel without compromising the job.   If the engine is idling for a period without any demands from the operator, it will drop rpms and enter into “Hibernate Idle”.
    • The on-demand engine cooling system is designed so that the cooling fan will provide only the level of engine cooling required. Because the fan will usually be running lower, noise levels are reduced and less fuel is consumed.
    • Automatic throttle-up feature enables the truck to operate within its most efficient speed under varying load conditions.
    • ECO-mode selectable performance levels: ECO eLo mode provides good performance, and optimizes the engine for best fuel economy. Hi-P mode provides the highest productivity, and is still able to deliver excellent fuel economy.
