Lithium-ion ready trucks launch
07 April 2021
THE THREE platform pallet truck models by Hyster Europe are designed for maximising productivity in intense industry applications.
The new series includes the P2.0S, P2.5S and P3.0S models and replaces the current P2.0S truck. They feature an updated fork design, a robust base frame, steel battery cover and improved ground clearance of pull rods. For the operator, the new models are available with either a folding platform and new side arms, or a fixed platform with new side, or rear, protection design.
“Whether it’s cross docking, loading and unloading trailers or order picking in the warehouse, the new Hyster Platform Pallet Trucks get the job done.” says Hyster Europe product manager – warehouse, Monica Radavelli. “Capable of lifting up to 3 tonnes, these dependable Pallet Trucks are equally suited to tough dockside conditions.
“In many operations space is at a premium, so models with a foldable, rather than fixed, platform are a popular choice and support manoeuvrability in narrow aisle widths or congested areas. Other applications may want to optimise productivity by specifying a truck with longer forks, allowing transportation of two pallets per journey, or more, if handled crossways.”
The truck is designed to be ‘lithium-ion ready’, with a controller that automatically recognises the chemistry of the battery (lithium-ion vs. lead-acid) so there is no need to change any parameters to enable effective battery management if lithium-ion suits the application. Top and side battery charging options are available.
The trucks feature a choice of fixed or adjustable tiller for trucks with a foldable platform. Adjustable scooter control is also available for fixed platform models.
Options, dependent on model, include a coasting function, Hyster Intelligent Lift, soft lowering, a foot sensor, key or keypad access, a cold store option, and a range of lights. A choice of two fork heights, 85mm and 75mm, and a variety of fork lengths up to 2850mm are available.
