If you’re currently using hand pallet trucks in your warehouse, switching to the new Hyster® PC1.5 ultra-compact lithium-ion pallet trucks can bring greater efficiency. Here are four reasons why.
1. Lithium-ion delivers power
Simple to use, the new pallet trucks, powered by a lithium-ion battery, offer significant benefits to the operator compared to a hand pallet truck, with powered travelling, lifting and lowering.
With a small and lightweight design, the Hyster® PC1.5 can lift up to 1.5 tonnes and helps overcome manual handling concerns when pushing or pulling heavy loads. The motorised pallet truck design can work at a higher intensity than a hand pallet truck, helping to reduce the strain on operators.
2. Perfect for lean fleets and tight spaces
The ultra-compact PC1.5 pallet truck from Hyster is designed to be tough and reliable enough to stand-up to daily operational challenges, but with a low cost of ownership. Operations with lean fleets will benefit from these dependable pallet trucks that are ready to go when needed.
The tough and robust frame is extremely compact for use in tight spaces, and the truck is designed to give good performance on gradients, helping to support operator productivity.
3. Supports continuous operation
When the lithium-ion battery needs replacing on this lithium-ion pallet truck, operators get a re-charge alert. It takes just six seconds to exchange it, keeping the operation running with minimal interruption.
A spare battery to support continuous operation and a large battery with three-hour fast charger are available options if your application demands it.
4. Simple maintenance requirements
The new Hyster® PC1.5 brings efficiency gains, without complex maintenance requirements. It is easy to service, with simple maintenance requirements, similar to a hand pallet truck.
The model features maintenance free components, such as a brushless drive motor and lithium-ion battery, as well as a durable steel frame and protective cover, and 60-second drive wheel replacement.
