Hyster equipment on show at the Briggs stand
Marking its 90th anniversary, Hyster showed its J2.5XN electric forklift, featuring a lithium-ion battery and retro décor, which encouraged conversation about developments in materials handling power.

A key topic included reduced emissions. On several of its FT and XT ICE forklifts, Hyster introduced Stage V engines at the beginning of the year, bringing low emission productivity and reliability to ICE operations. Many of the LPG Fortens models of up to 3.5T lift capacity now feature PSI engines with a catalytic converter, while several diesel models have a Kabota 2.4l engine with a diesel particulate filter.

On the stand, Hyster Europe also showed a specially optimised J5.5XN6 electric lift truck which enables paper reels to be loaded down the centre line of a lorry trailer for transport, helping to evenly distribute weight, improve stability and reduce paper reel damage.

Where previously a 7 T truck would be needed, the tilting carriage option and reel clamp attachment make it possible to accurately place reels into a trailer with the 5.5 T capacity truck.

Also on display was a H3.5FT forklift which is a popular model in construction materials manufacturing and DIY retail distribution centre operations. It is often used for handling building materials, such as bricks, tiles, cement bags, aggregate or insulation materials.
