The safe and efficient operation of a lift truck requires skill and alertness on the part of the operator. To develop the skill required the operator must:

  • Receive training in the proper operation of THIS lift truck.
  • Understand any potential hazards that may exist in the work place where the lift truck is intended to be used.
  • Understand the capabilities and limitations of the lift truck.
  • Become familiar with the construction of the lift truck and see that it is maintained in good condition.
  • Read and properly understand the warnings, instructions, and operating procedures in this manual.

In addition, a qualified person, experienced in lift truck operation, must guide a new operator through several driving and load handling operations before the new operator attempts to operate the lift truck alone. Hyster H40-60XT Operating Manual,Hyster H40-60XT User Manual,Hyster H40-60XT Owner's Manual.

It is the responsibility of the employer to make sure that the operator can see, hear, and has the physical and mental ability to operate the equipment safely. Various laws and regulations require the employer to train lift truck operators. These laws and regulations include:

  • Occupational Safety and Health Act (USA)
  • Canada Material Handling Regulations

NOTE: A comprehensive operator training program is available from Hyster Company. For further details, contact your dealer for Hyster lift trucks. This Operating Manual is the original instruction and contains information necessary for the operation and maintenance of a basic lift truck. Optional equipment is sometimes installed that can change some operating characteristics described in this manual. Make sure the necessary instructions are available and understood before operating the lift truck. Some of the components and systems described in this Operating Manual will NOT be installed on your unit. If you have a question about any item described, contact your dealer for Hyster lift trucks.

Additional information that describes safe operation and use of lift trucks is available from the following sources:

  • Employment safety and health standards or regulations (Examples: "Occupational Safety and Health Standards (USA)", "Canada Material Handling Regulations".
  • Safety codes and standards (Example: Industrial Truck Standards Development Foundation, ANSI/ITSDF B56.1, Safety Standard for Low Lift and High Lift Trucks).
  • Publications from government safety agencies, government insurers, private insurers and private organizations (Example: Accident Prevention Manual for Industrial Operations, from the National Safety Council).

Operator Protection Equipment
The LOAD BACKREST EXTENSION is installed to keep loose parts of the load from falling back toward operator. It must be high enough, with vertical openings small enough, to prevent parts of the load from falling backward. If a load backrest extension that is different from the one installed on your lift truck is required, contact your Hyster lift truck dealer.

The OVERHEAD GUARD is intended to offer reasonable protection to the operator from falling objects, but cannot protect against every possible impact. Therefore, it must not be considered a substitute for good judgment and care when handling loads. DO NOT remove the overhead guard.

The SEAT BELT AND HIP RESTRAINT provide additional means to help the operator keep the head and torso substantially within the confines of the lift truck frame and overhead guard if a tipover occurs. This restraint system is intended to reduce the risk of the head and torso being trapped between the lift truck and the ground, but it cannot protect the operator against all possible injury in a tipover. The hip restraint will help the operator resist side movement. It is not a substitute for the seat belt. Always fasten the seat belt.

The capacity is specified in kilograms (kg) and pounds (lb). The capacity is the maximum load that the lift truck can handle for the load condition shown on the Nameplate. The maximum capacity for the lift truck, at full load height, must be shown on the Nameplate. Special capacities with the load height reduced or with optional load centers, may also be shown on the Nameplate. The lift truck serial number code is on the Nameplate. The serial number code is also stamped on the right-hand side of the lift truck frame, under the floorplate.

When a lift truck is shipped incomplete from the factory, the Nameplate is covered by an INCOMPLETE label as shown in Figure 2. If the equipment on the truck is changed, the Nameplate is covered by a NOTICE label as shown in Figure 2. If your lift truck has either of these labels, do not operate the lift truck. Contact your dealer for Hyster lift trucks to obtain a complete correct Nameplate.
