Hyster introduces forklift stability control system


Hyster has launched the Dynamic Stability System (DSS), a new solution engineered to provide automated performance controls and alerts for safer operations.

The system is standard on all H40-70A models in the recently launched Hyster A Series.

All DSS sensors are completely maintenance-free and continually monitor forklift performance such as lift height, hydraulic load, mast tilt, truck speed, and steer angle, according to Hyster.

When the system detects the lift truck exceeding designated stability thresholds, it automatically intervenes with measures to support stable travel.

Four different subsystems help to smoothly decelerate the forklift when travelling around corners and in turns, and to limit truck speed, tilt speed, and tilt range when carrying elevated loads.

The operator remains in command of the equipment and receives performance reduction feedback, visual indicators, and audible alerts to help reinforce the best practices established in their training.

Integration with Hyster Tracker telemetry monitoring is also available to help supervisors access greater visibility into operator performance through real-time updates each time a DSS function is triggered.

“The DSS is engineered to give operators real-time stability support they can count on and learn from,” said Jimmy Anderson, Product Manager, Hyster.  

“The system is also designed for managers, offering insight to how forklifts are being operated, particularly when integrated with the Hyster Tracker option, which is a real differentiator. 

“DSS does all of this without requiring the additional maintenance and upkeep some competitive systems demand,” Anderson added.

This announcement comes a year after material handling dealer, Black Equipment, was appointed as the single authorised dealer for both Hyster-Yale Group brands in the Tennesse and Arkansas markets.

More recently, Hyster Company announced the testing of a top-pick container handler powered by hydrogen fuel cells (HFC) at Fenix Marine Services in the Port of Los Angeles.
