Hyster Europe has launched a new, compact Reach Truck series with a tilting mast, which the company says is perfectly suited to warehouses where space is at a premium, such as those commonly found in retail, food and beverage applications.
“The new Hyster Reach Truck models are designed for retail, food and drink warehouses operations in mind, lifting up to 1400kg and reaching heights of up to 7.5m,” says Timo Antony, Area Business Director Central Europe, Hyster. “These operations typically have tight spaces, so we have included a mast which can be tilted back.”
By tilting the mast, the Hyster R1.0E, 1.2E and 1.4E Reach Trucks provide greater manoeuvrability, saving all-important centimetres so the truck can handle stock in even narrower aisles. An integral side shift and compact chassis design also help improve productivity, as even in tight spaces, goods can be stored and retrieved efficiently.
An extension of the existing Hyster R1.4–2.5 Reach Truck range, the new compact reach truck series affords the same high level of toughness, visibility, driveability and ease of control, as well as a comfortable operator compartment.
A robust frame, top protection of the load wheels, sealed connectors and critical sensors all contribute to overall dependability, helping to maintain a low Total Cost of Ownership. As with all Hyster equipment, the new compact Reach Trucks are easy to service, helping to minimise downtime.
The new Reach Truck models include a range of ergonomic features as standard to increase driver comfort. However, a wide variety of customisation options, including the Hyster Tracker fleet management system, are also available to enable applications to match the truck to their specific industry needs.
