Hyundai Forklift: BT-9 Series Electric Counterbalance Forklifts
Hyundai Forklift, a leading material handling equipment manufacturer, is pleased to announce the addition of their 15/18/20 BT-9 series 3-wheel electric counterbalance, pneumatic tire forklifts. These newly designed models will provide operators with ultimate comfort, increased productivity and easy maintenance. The BT-9 series forklifts are ideal for medium and heavy applications including warehouses, bottling plants, distribution centers, manufacturing facilities and more.
Hyundai’s new BT-9 series forklifts are engineered for high efficiency and optimal performance. All three models feature advanced drive and lift performance with proven durability and low maintenance. The enclosed drive and pump motor with 100% AC technology combine power,extendedmaintenance intervals and excellent durability. The brushless AC motors provide improved efficiency and reduced maintenance costs. All three models have various mast heights and designs and offer load capacities of 3,000 lbs, 3,500 lbs and 4,000 lbs, respectively.
The efficient and smooth running BT-9 series provides powerful performance to make your work more productive. All three models were designed for a compact aisle width and turning radius and have a Curve Control feature, which limits travel speed based on turning radius, reducing speed for a smooth, precise turning operation for the driver. An anti-roll back system is installed to guarantee protection against machine roll back while also providing exceptional ramp start capabilities. The BT-9 series features a max travel speed (unloaded) of 10.6 mph and a max gradeability (loaded) of 29.5%, 27.5% and 24.5%, respectively. Operators have the option of using four different performance modes, High, Normal, Economic and Turtle Mode, providing ultimate flexibility in all working conditions. A new standard feature includes the Load Indicator System, which measures the weight of the load the operator is lifting and is viewed through the display monitor. When the operator attempts to exceed the load limit, a warning is activated alerting the operator. This system is accurate within +/- 1 percent.
As always Hyundai kept safety a top priority with the BT-9 series forklifts. All three models have advanced safety features including an optimized lift cylinder arrangement, which gives operators wider visibility on all sides as well as a panoramic mirror that expands the driver’s view when backing up. A strong overhead guard exceeding CEE and ANSI regulations gives operators the utmost protection from falling objects above. When forks are being lowered on the BT-9 series forklifts, a down-control valve maintains a controlled speed and similarly, the down-safety valve prevents forks from dropping down in case of sudden damage of the hydraulic line. An Operator Presence Sensing System (OPSS) deactivates drive and hydraulic functions after 3 seconds when an operator is not in the seat. Additionally, LED combination lights and halogen headlights provide optimum visibility in all circumstances. Rear reflectors mounted on the counterweight ensure safety for both the operator and the application.
Hyundai’s BT-9 series forklifts are not only safe but also comfortable. A newly designed operator cabin was conceived for more space, a wider field view and enhanced operator comfort. The BT-9 series models feature an optimized pedal position and floor mat and a large, non-slip entrance step. An adjustable steering wheel enables operators to achieve their most comfortable driving position, necessary for long day’s work. The angle of the steering column can easily be adjusted through a lever on the right-hand side of the steering column for added comfort. A full suspension Grammer seat offers various adjustments for greater comfort, reducing operator fatigue.
Maintenance on the BT-9 series forklifts is hassle free with an ideal arrangement of critical machine components. The battery compartment is equipped with side battery removal for easy replacement. An advanced LCD monitor allows the operator to easily and efficiently control the machine. The monitor provides vital information such as speed level, steer angle, travel direction, battery discharge indicator, hour meter and working mode. Additionally, an enhanced brake oil reservoir, located on the upper left dashboard, is equipped with an electronic level sensor and is easily visible through the monitor.
Hyundai’s BT-9 series forklifts can easily accommodate various attachments to meet any application’s need.
