This series of electric lift trucks is available in the following models: (see Figure 1). J30XNT, J35XNT, and J40XNT (K160) The lift trucks covered in this Operating Manual are equipped with solid rubber tires that look like pneumatic tires. See Wheels and Tires in the Maintenance Section for a description of these tires. The operation of the lift truck is the same for all models. A battery supplies power for the traction motors, hydraulic pump motor, control panel, and display panel. The lift trucks covered in this Operating Manual are manufactured with three motors: two traction motors and a hydraulic pump motor. See Figure 2 and Figure 3. The motors use AC motor and control technology. The traction motors are mounted between the left and right transmissions on the drive axle. The hydraulic pump motor is mounted behind the driver and in front of the counter weight. See Figure 2 and Figure 3.
In addition to dual, hydraulically-operated, wet disc service brakes and electrically-operated disc parking brake, the lift trucks covered in this Operating Manual are equipped with electric braking (plugging) and an auto brake feature. When the lift truck is traveling in one direction and the direction control switch or MONOTROL® pedal is changed to the opposite direction, the plugging function is energized. Auto regenerative braking allows the user to set the distance the truck will coast when the direction control switch is returned to the NEUTRAL position or when the MONOTROL® or accelerator pedal is released.

To OWNERS, USERS, and OPERATORS:
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, pursuant to OSHA 1910.178(l) dated 12/98, in the proper operation of THIS lift truck.
- 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. 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.
Additional information that describes the 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).
- Guide for Users of Industrial Lift Trucks (Hyster Part No. 852930) describes lift truck safety, good maintenance practices, and training programs and is available from your dealer for Hyster lift trucks.
A brake pedal actuates the hydraulic service brakes at the drive wheels. The lift trucks covered in this Operating Manual can be equipped with either standard manual hydraulic levers, or Electro-Hydraulic (E-Hydraulic) mini-levers. Forward or reverse movements can be controlled by either a MONOTROL® pedal or a direction control switch. If the lift truck is equipped with E-Hydraulic mini-levers, the direction control switch is located on the left side of the armrest, in front of the horn button. If the lift truck is equipped with manual hydraulic levers, the direction control switch is located on the left side of the first lever. See Figure 4. All lift trucks are equipped with a Battery Discharge Indicator (BDI) and an hourmeter. The bar graph type of BDI shows the state of charge of the battery. These lift trucks have Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screen. The LCD screen shows the battery bar graph and provides other service information. Hourmeter operating time(s) are also shown on the LCD screen. See Display Panel Features in this section for a more detailed description of how these display panels operate.
