Logistics BusinessHyster double stacker optimises productivity

Hyster has added the new S2.0SD platform double stacker to its range of dependable warehouse equipment to help operations increase productivity, while managing costs.

The new Hyster stacker truck, which can handle loads up to two tonnes, enables double stacking and handling of open sided pallet loads, as well as the transportation and loading or unloading of pallets stacked two high in a trailer. It is particularly well suited to logistics operations, retail, food distribution, and dock loading applications, where productivity in the transport and storage of palletised loads is necessary.

The new Hyster stacker provides increased speed, both when laden and unladen, making it suitable for travelling long distances or for working in loading docks.  It has also been designed for operator efficiency with a new tiller head, a choice of different driving modes, and a side arms design that makes it quicker to move to the desired position.

For operator protection and comfort, the Hyster S2.0SD platform double stacker features a large platform with rubber floormat to provide excellent grip and side/rear operator compartment panels. The truck provides an ergonomic lifting option for shelf replenishment operations with a two-stage NFL mast with lift heights of 1660mm, 2020mm and 2980mm. Applications with tight spaces can also benefit, thanks to the flexibility of a fold-up platform. Models with a fixed platform are also available.

Those opting to use a lithium-ion battery with the truck will also benefit from high uptime across multiple shifts thanks to the ability to opportunity charge during breaks via the convenient side plug. The truck is 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 manage the battery.

“Managing costs is as important as ever, so the new Hyster platform double stacker is designed for dependability as well as productivity, with a low Total Cost of Ownership,” says Monica Radavelli, Product Manager Warehouse, for Hyster. “It features heavy duty components, robust design, a reliable electric system, and simple serviceability that applications can combine with additional options to further match the truck to the specific application.”

Optional extras (dependent on the model) include Hyster Tracker telematics, several light packages, adjustable tiller, a key and keypad start system, a load backrest, load wheels, a range of drive wheels, foot sensor or cold store conversion.  Additional options to enhance the operator experience include multipurpose bars and clamps, clipboard, and a bottle holder.

The Hyster S2.0SD platform double stacker, which replaces the current Hyster P2.0SD model, is available to order now so that businesses can improve productivity, and in turn benefit from cost efficiencies.
