Hyster Europe has extended its range of electric counterbalance forklifts with the introduction of nine new three- and four-wheel forklift models for lifts up to 3.5 T. The Hyster J1.5-3.5UT four-wheel and J1.6-2.0UTT three-wheel electric forklifts are the latest models to join the Hyster UT series. Designed to be simple to use and easy to maintain, the new electric Hyster trucks provide affordability and reliability across industry. "A familiar automotive layout alongside superb manoeuvrability and control make these uncomplicated electric forklifts well-suited to the needs of many different handling operations," says Rob O'Donoghue, director solutions - Europe, Middle East and Africa for Hyster Europe. "They are ideally positioned to complement the existing range of Hyster lift trucks and warehouse equipment." The new electric forklifts, which are available with lead-acid batteries, also offer a small turning radius and truck footprint to aid effective manoeuvring in warehouse aisles or loading areas, where space may be at a premium. A range of standard features and options, including different masts, forks and carriages, help to further configure the truck to the particular needs of the application. The three- and four-wheel electric UT forklifts are also ideal for operations looking to self-service, according to the company. With simple components and clever design elements, such as an easily removable one-piece floor plate and quick-release battery hood and controller cover, when matched with the right application and operating intensity, the trucks can minimise both service time and costs.
