Hyster's new Li-ion pallet truck
Hyster Europe has launched an ultra-compact lithium-ion pallet truck for loads up to 1.5 T.
The new PC1.5 Pallet Truck, powered by a lithium-ion battery, can deliver greater efficiency than a hand pallet truck.
"For those currently using hand pallet trucks in the warehouse, switching to the new PC1.5 brings efficiency gains, without complex maintenance requirements," says Matt Hardy, solutions manager - EMEA for Hyster Europe. "Operations with lean fleets will benefit from these dependable pallet trucks that are ready to go when needed."
The new lithium-ion pallet trucks offer significant benefits to the operator compared to a hand pallet truck, with powered travelling, lifting and lowering. Despite the small and lightweight design, the Hyster PC1.5 can lift up to 1.5 T and helps overcome manual handling concerns when pushing or pulling heavy loads.
When the lithium-ion battery needs replacing, operators get a re-charge alert and, in just six seconds, can exchange it, keeping the operation running with minimal interruption. A spare battery is included to support continuous operation, while an optional large battery with three-hour fast charger is available where the application demands it.
The model features maintenance-free components, such as a brushless drive motor and lithium-ion battery, as well as a durable steel frame and protective cover, and 60-second drive wheel replacement.
