AC-powered Lift Truck features ADS
Hyster’s E30-40XN Series offers quality, ergonomics; creating an operator-friendly AC-powered lift truck.
Hyster Company has built its next generation of tough, highly durable and ultra-reliable electric lift trucks. The new Hyster E30-40XN series delivers lifting capacities of 3,000 to 4,000 lbs. and offers significant performance and versatility for a wide variety of material handling applications.
“The E30-40XN series is one of the most operator-friendly AC-powered lift trucks in the world,” said Brett Schemerhorn, vice president of dealer sales, Hyster Company. “It sets a new standard in electric lift trucks by lowering overall operating costs and energy consumption while maximizing productivity. You can count on this workhorse to get the job done.”
Leading the way in operator comfort and performance, the E30-40XN series is among the most productive electric lift trucks on the market. The series includes:
- newly designed, industry-leading operator compartments
- sixteen percent more floor spacerelocated multifunction displays that ensure enhanced visibility and precise pallet control
- improved brake pedal layout
- Auto Deceleration System (ADS) which reduces operator fatigue
- Steel hood that provides for maximum battery service access
By utilizing AC motors and transistor controller technology for both the traction and hydraulic systems, Hyster has reportedly reduced the frequency and cost of maintenance. The Hyster-designed thermal management system continuously monitors the E30-40XN series’ controller and motor temperature and, upon identifying irregularity, the system protects the component by automatically adjusting truck performance.
According to the VDI Energy Cycle Standardized Test, the E30-40XN series purportedly consumes the lowest amount of energy when compared to similar lift trucks. As an additional benefit to reducing the environmental impact, better energy utilization results in increased savings and return on investment.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
