35,000-lb. forklift

One of 24 models in the company’s high-performance, diesel forklift line, the 160D-7E suits concrete product handling. Built with a six-cylinder, turbo-charged Cummins QSB6.7 Tier III engine, rated at EP-Hyundai-400
162 hp, it provides optimum power, low noise and fuel efficiency.

The Hyundai 160D-7E features an engine control mode, which according to operator preference, can be adjusted from Standard Mode, for fuel-wise, light-duty operation, to Power Mode, for heavy-duty or slope operation. A fully automatic transmission offers handling and soft, smooth shifting while also allowing operators to select between two kinds of automatic modes. The robust, high-output engine offers acceleration, gradeability and travel speed on tough terrains or slopes. Additional features include cruise control, transmission control switch, plus front, mast and rear work lamps for night work. 

In addition to providing power and fuel efficiency, the 160D-7E offers comfort levels aimed at reducing operator fatigue and increasing efficiency; operator-friendly gauges; water-resistant monitor panel; and, adjustable suspension seat. The model also features high-output air conditioning mounted on the upper side of the cabin to maximize space and ensure a good operating environment. 

An Engine Start Limit feature makes engine starting possible only after operator password verification. A rearview camera monitor supports four channels making operation safer and easier. Also included are a centralized instrument switch panel, MP3/CD player and remote control, quick response operating control levers, ergonomically positioned pedals, and an adjustable steering column.

The 160D-7E has a carriage of rugged, high tensile structural steel construction. An up-to-date cooling system contributes to fuel economy and noise reduction by applying the hydraulic fan, sensing intake air, transmission oil, coolant and hydraulic temperatures. The forklift also features an Operator Presence Sensing System, which allows mast tilting, lifting and lowering only when the operator is in the normal position. A hypoid-type planetary reduction drive axle smoothly delivers desired torque to the drive wheels, while an auto parking feature automatically engages when the transmission is in neutral and the operator leaves the seat. The 160D-7E is also equipped with a wet disc brake system, fitted protector for hub bolts, a cylinder guard, plus a large footboard and handle for improved convenience and safety. 

The 160D-7E forklift features a large engine hood with a highly accessible engine compartment. An automatic cabin tilting system makes servicing of all powertrain components quick and easy, electronically allowing tilting of the operator cabin to the left side, approximately 65 degrees. The truck is also equipped with an easy change air filter and clogging sensor alerts; cabin air fresh filter; compact fuse box for easy inspection; automatic self-locking gas spring; large toolbox; pressure gauge port; and, easy maintenance oil check. — Hyundai Forklift, 877/509-2254; www.hceamericas.com
