Hyster has launched a new indoor-outdoor reach truck that can lift up to two tonnes.
The RO1.6-2.0 Reach Truck models feature Super Elastic tyres for load and drive wheels for use on uneven, outdoor ground conditions, as well as in indoor warehouse operations. Optional cabs are also available for applications requiring frequent outdoor usage.
“With the new Hyster Outdoor Reach Truck, we have created a two-in-one truck to help … sites with mixed indoor and outdoor operations,” says Monica Radavelli, Hyster warehouse product manager.
“You can retrieve pallets indoors and then load them into lorries outside, or you can efficiently unload lorries with varying floor conditions, before putting the pallets away in the warehouse – all with the same truck.”
The new models have a more compact design compared to most counterbalance lift trucks for use in warehouses with narrow aisles.
The reach trucks have three-stage full free lift masts, with tilting and side shifting forks, support a lifting height of up to 7.5 m in the warehouse.
The new models are available with a lithium-ion battery option.
“No gassing or watering is required, and there is no risk of acid spills,” Radavelli says.
“Depending on local regulations, space may also be maximised as, instead of a designated charging room, the truck can be simply plugged in to top up its charge throughout the day. Multi-shift operations may also be able to reduce their battery fleet.”
The trucks can be customised to suit different working environments. The options include telescopic forks, semi and full cabs, lights as well as different seat, steering and display options.
The new outdoor reach truck is available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
