Forklift truck manufacturer Hyster claims that its three-wheel J1.5-2.0XNT and the four-wheel J1.6-2.0XN forklift trucks will deliver the lowest cost of ownership for companies looking to reduce materials handling costs, amid rising energy prices.
David Rowell, European operations manger of Hyster, said: “The new Hyster electric forklifts have been designed to meet the increasing demands of the current industrial climate.
“Reduced life-time costs, reduced energy consumption, maximum efficiency, maximum productivity, total reliability and flexibility are all key requirements.”
Standard models have between 1.5t-2t lifting capacities with various lift heights and are available in three or four steer-wheel configurations, both with front wheel drive.
According to Hyster the new generation trucks are aiming to offer the lowest energy consumption levels in the industry while still achieving high productivity.
It says that they are also designed to deliver maximum dependability and low maintenance costs, with the easiest serviceability in the industry.
