Portable air compressor

A single-stage, oil-injected, rotary screw portable compressor, the CPS 250 features cognitive electronics (PACE) technology with which the operator can control machine pressure. The new intuitive XC2003 controller is coupled with PACE functionality and adjusts the pressure in 2-psi increments. The operator can also toggle between two predefined set points. In addition to the new controller, product engineers increased the operating range of the compressor in the 100-150 psi range, making the machine more versatile and user friendly.

Fork positioning, mast rework raise lift truck operator visibility

The Hyster H190-360HD2 series, with four models in the 19,000- to 36,000-lb. capacity range, features a recently redesigned mast and carriage. Lift chains and the mast inner channel have been modified to create a wider window through the carriage, providing greater visibility of fork tips at ground level and trailer height. The mast is also mounted closer to the truck, allowing for a higher load capacity without a longer or heavier chassis.
