Heavy-Duty Walkie Pallet Truck

Hyster Co., Greenville, N.C., debuted its new W45ZHD heavy-duty walkie pallet truck, which is designed to be tough, intelligent and able to handle some of the most Hyster walkiedemanding walkie applications.

The new Hyster W45ZHD walkie pallet truck utilizes a heavy-duty fork frame and linkage with HTX bushings. The heavy duty steel drive frame coupled with a highly engineered drive unit casting make this one of the heaviest drive unit frames in the industry, according to Hyster.

To improve productivity through technology, the W45ZHD walkie is available with Hyster’s patented Intelligent Lift technology, which is said to improve operator productivity up to 25% by allowing operators to simultaneously transport and lift pallets. Trucks equipped with this technology will automatically lift the pallet to the maximum fork height, without continually having to hold the lift button during transport.

Another industry exclusive feature is Hyster’s Intelligent Slow Down, which recognizes when the operator turns the truck during cornering and automatically decreases speed. This feature also allows the unit to be placed in turtle function in all handle run zones, minimizing the truck profile and improving maneuverability.
