Hyster 3-wheel electric lift trucks join 4-wheel models and complementary tow and pallet trucks.

The economical new Hyster UT electric range now includes 3-wheel forklifts in 1600-2000kg capacity; pallet lift trucks in 1500kg capacity; and stand-up and sit-down tow trucks in 3000-6000kg capacity, respectively.

"The new UT lift trucks include the latest driver safety, comfort, manoeuvrability and drive features to meet the needs of emerging and growing applications in customer segments such as warehousing, logistics (including 3PL), hypermarts and retail stores," Hyster-Yale Area Business Director Pacific Mark Chaffey says.

"These latest additions to the UT family join Hyster’s 4-wheel UT forklifts in economically bringing the performance of electric forklifts to emerging and growing market sectors seeking optimum cost-efficiency for their materials handling needs – while still gaining Hyster’s long-established strengths of toughness, reliability, safety and strong service backing."

"Product releases of the expanded family of UT electric lift trucks (UT Tow tractors and Walkie Pallet trucks) also brings the broad range of Hyster brand advantages to these markets, without paying for features users do not need in their particular businesses."

Features of the new three-wheel electric lift trucks incorporate an ergonomically designed operator compartment; smooth performance provided by AC traction and hydraulic motors with electronic control; European-designed AC controllers coupled with AC traction and hydraulic motors allow for precise controllability.

Compact dual-drive motors – one for each front wheel – feature precision-cut gears for reduced wear and lower noise levels;  a small steering wheel to facilitate fine control, with eight degrees of adjustment and low steering effort for operation in confined spaces. 

Power options include wet cell batteries with single point watering, or maintenance-free Lithium-Ion technology.
