Want to Maximise Productivity? Introducing the New Hyster® Platform Pallet Trucks

10th March 2021

Does your operation involve cross docking? Are you loading or unloading trailers? Order picking in the warehouse? Our three new Hyster® Platform Pallet Trucks can help you get the job done!

Capable of lifting up to 3 tonnes, these dependable Platform Pallet Trucks are equally suited to tough dockside conditions and ideal for maximising productivity in intense industry applications. The new Hyster® Platform Pallet Truck series is built with the same level of toughness and reliability found across the wide range of Hyster® warehouse equipment.

Updated Hyster® platform pallet truck design

The new series includes the P2.0S, P2.5S and P3.0S models and replaces the current P2.0S truck. The operator can benefit from either a folding platform and new side arms, or a fixed platform with new side, or rear, protection design.

The trucks feature:

  • an updated fork design
  • a robust base frame
  • steel battery cover
  • improved ground clearance of pull rods
  • competitive travel speeds
  • a range of different driving modes
  • a choice of fixed or adjustable tiller (for trucks with a foldable platform)
  • Adjustable scooter control (for fixed platform models)

Customisable for your needs

The new Hyster® Platform Pallet Trucks can be customised with a range of innovative options. Depending on the specific model, these may include:

  • a coasting function
  • Hyster Intelligent Lift™
  • soft lowering
  • a foot sensor
  • key or keypad access
  • a cold store option
  • a range of lights
  • a choice of two fork heights – 85mm and 75mm

Save space…or handle more pallets. The choice is yours!

In many operations space is at a premium, so Hyster® Platform Pallet Truck models with a foldable, rather than fixed, platform may 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.

Lithium-ion ready pallet trucks

The new Hyster® platform pallet trucks are 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.

A low cost of ownership

Heavy-duty components and a reliable electrical system contribute to a low cost of ownership. Ease of service access and diagnostics also help maximise truck uptime.
