Hyster Company Offers Two New Reach Truck Attachments


New accessories increase productivity and safety while reducing product damage

(GREENVILLE, N.C., USA: Oct. 2, 2008) Hyster Company (www.hyster.com) offers the fork laser and the fork camera, two attachment options for the Hyster® ZR Reach truck. Designed to increase operator productivity, these attachments help limit costs associated with product and rack damage, and can also improve operator safety within the warehouse.

The fork laser emits a beam that provides lift truck operators with a guide for correct fork placement when retrieving product. The life span of the fork laser attachment exceeds 10,000 hours, while each battery pack lasts up to forty hours on a full charge. Especially useful in environments with low visibility, the laser can be displayed as either a dot beam or line beam, depending upon operator preference.

Also available from Hyster is the fork camera option, which provides a "fork eye view" at elevated heights. This allows the operator to not only retrieve and replace product more efficiently, but can also help to reduce workplace accidents caused by inaccurate fork placement. Mounted to the fork carriage, the camera sends a digital image to a 7.5" color monitor located in the top left corner of the operator compartment.

Currently available only on the Hyster narrow aisle ZR Reach truck, the fork attachments demonstrate the Hyster commitment to helping operators work in the most productive, safe and efficient setting. For more information about either product, please find your local Hyster dealer at www.hyster.com.
