Project Focus: Hyster H650C Forklift Repower
We recently performed our latest repower on a Hyster H650C Forklift.
This equipment is designed for cargo handling, and is used primarily for moving ship containers for the South Jersey Port Corporation. Upon receipt, the forklift was originally equipped with a V8 200 HP Perkins, and a Funk 1500 series transmission.
The existing engine, transmission, cooling package, engine mounts, transmission mounts, wiring, and plumbing were all removed from the vehicle, and a new drive train package, which utilized a remanufactured transmission, was designed. The redesigned package featured a new John Deere 6068HF285, 200hp, tier-3 engine and cooling system, centered around our in-house, newly remanufactured FUNK Transmission.
The engine and transmission were then mated using updated technology from the folks at FUNK drive train and prepped for installation. New mounts, plumbing and wiring were installed throughout the machine, creating a new sense of reliability and life for the vehicle.
Next, the engine and transmission assembly were installed and a custom exhaust and air induction system were fabricated to ensure the new power plant would receive proper, unrestricted air flow.
The machine was further complimented with a refinished dash, which now includes a state of the art, full electronic engine monitoring system, as well as new analog gauges for all other vehicle operating systems. Upon completion, the drivetrain package received extensive performance testing, to ensure quality and product reliability.
At Melton Industries, we stand behind our products and our quality. Therefore, a 2 year, 2000 hour engine warranty, and a 1 year 1,000 hour transmission warranty accompany all of our products; giving the customer a complete sense of comfort should anything go wrong.
Since its return to South Jersey Port Corporation, this vehicle has been a hit with the operators at the port, who are most impressed with the responsiveness of the vehicle, making them an extremely happy customer.
