Long-lasting Shell hydraulic oil launched at Hyster Hub 2016

21st November 2016

At the Hyster® HUB 2016, Shell Lubricants launched a new, longer-lasting hydraulic oil, perfect for Hyster® trucks operating across a wide range of demanding industries and operating conditions.

With hundreds of people, including Hyster® forklift dealers, end users and press, assembled at the event in Weeze, Germany from 4th – 7th October, it was the ideal opportunity to launch the new lubricant.

At the event, Maarten J Beckers, Technical Specialist Automotive from Shell Lubricants explained “Specially formulated to cope with a variety of operational conditions, the new hydraulic oil has been developed to provide the best possible results in tough applications. Formulated with higher quality base oils, combined with specific additive-technology, this hydraulic oil can help provide longer oil change intervals.”


All Hyster® trucks across Europe are factory filled with high-quality Shell oils and lubricants. To ensure the trucks remain in good condition and perform as expected, it is recommended to use Shell lubricants throughout the lifetime of Hyster® forklift trucks.

The use of Shell oils and lubricants not only allows forklift owners to ensure the products they use are specific to their needs, but also enables oil performance to be monitored. In combination with Hyster® trucks, this can contribute to low cost of ownership.
