Hyster brings UT series to Asia-Pacific for warehousing and logistics applications

Hyster has introduced the new UT series of four-wheel electric forklifts to the Asia-Pacific market. Available in capacities from 1-3.5 tonnes, the UT series features an ergonomically designed operator compartment to enable operators work across a range of applications, including food and beverage, frozen produce, manufacturing, distribution and truck and transport centres.

Suresh Kuttaiyan, area business director, Asia, Hyster-Yale, added: “Power options including wet cell batteries with a single point watering or maintenance-free Lithium-Ion technology. Smooth, progressive high performance is provided by AC traction and hydraulic motors with electronic control. European designed AC controllers are coupled with AC traction and hydraulic motors to allow for precise controllability.

“A small steering wheel facilitates fine control, with eight degrees of adjustment and low steering effort for operation in confined spaces. The low steering effort without kick-back facilitates precise positioning.”

Other features include a wide view mast to enhance operators’ forward view field, high strength profiled steel overhead guard for added protection coupled with low step height for easy access, and full suspension seat that reduces driver fatigue. Performance features include display of speed, power, error code and working hours to keep operators fully informed. Colour displays are also integrated with functions such as performance selection to configure the truck for different applications.
