  • Hysters Help Close Out an Era

    On June 22, 2013, Dahlhauser Machine Shop in West Bend, Iowa, a long-time Hyster user, decided to close out an era and hold an auction to clear out over 73 years’ worth of machinery and tools so that the owner, Max Dahlhauser, could retire.

    Opened in 1940 by Henry Dahlhauser, the machine shop started as gas station/repair shop and then over the years grew into a full-fledged machine shop fixing anything from lawnmowers to combines.

    As you can see from the pictures below, the auction was a huge success, with over 200 buyers in attendance. To help load auction purchases for buyers, the machine shop was able to get a helping hand from two Hyster Pneumatic forklifts.

    Now that the era of Dahlhauser Machine Shop has come to a close, owner Max Dahlhauser says, “I’m looking forward to spending some time at the race track!”

    Good luck Max, with your new endeavors, and thank you for being a Hyster customer!

     

     

     

  • Hyster Unveils New Heavy Duty Lift Truck Series

    PITTSBURGH (May 7, 2013) – Hyster Company unveiled its new H360-36/48HD lift truck series at this week’s 2013 AISTech 2013 Exposition. The new series is designed to meet the most demanding applications, such as pipe handling, general and crated cargo, break bulk, lumber, steel and concrete.

    The Hyster® H360-36/48HD series features durable components built around a well-integrated powertrain, an all-new heavy duty front end and excellent all-around visibility. The truck is engineered for easy service while offering up to 20 percent lower fuel consumption than found in leading competitive products. Two models are available. The Hyster®H360-36HD delivers 36,000 lbs. of lifting capacity at a 36-inch load center and the Hyster® H360-48HD provides 36,000 lbs. of lifting capacity at a 48-inch load center.

    Hyster has teamed with Cummins to deliver a well-integrated powertrain solution optimized to deliver maximum productivity, excellent fuel consumptions, low emissions and a long service life. The Cummins QSB 6.7L 6 Cylinder Diesel engine delivers 164 horsepower and 540 foot pounds of torque. This engine solution features cooled EGR technology and a Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) in an EPA Tier 4i-compliant package that does not require the use of a DPF or DEF (urea), saving time and money. Innovative heavy-duty and economy performance modes offer excellent fuel economy while maximizing productivity.

    The H360-36/48 series comes equipped with Hyster’s On-Demand load-sensing hydraulic system with Variable Displacement Pump Technology. This innovative hydraulic system delivers hydraulic flow only when needed to lift a load. In conventional fixed displacement systems, oil is pumped whether hydraulic load demands increase or not. The Hyster On-Demand system introduces an efficient way to meet the truck’s hydraulic load demands, saving fuel and producing less heat. Also, oil and filters last longer, as do hoses and seals due to the lower temperatures.

  • Louisville Champions Fundraising Effort to Benefit Local Food Pantry

    During the recent Battle of the Branches, MH vs. Hunger,  the team in Louisville took a different approach to make the most of their donations.  Donna Petty, Service Coordinator, championed a fundraising effort for Dare to Care Food Bank.  Because of their purchasing power, Dare to Care was able to turn every quarter donated into a dollars worth of food!

    In addition to providing food to hundreds of emergency kitchens, shelters and food pantries, Dare to Care operates several programs targeting the most vulnerable in the community.  Last year Dare to Care distributed food for 13 million meals to those in need in the 13 county Kentuckiana service area.

    In addition to the 200 food  items donated, the Louisville branch also contributed $810.00 dollars, or $3240.00 “Dare to Care dollars”.

    Joe Bradley, Construction Rental Manager said “We really feel we got more bang for the buck that way!  Under the tremendous leadership of the amazing Ms. Petty, we feel that indeed we pulled together to support a very worthy cause and made a difference.”

    Great job, Louisville!
