Hyster has launched its general-purpose H2.0-3.5UT lift truck series.

Available with diesel, LPG or dual fuel engines, provides strength, reliability and a low cost of ownership, according to the company. “With an uncomplicated design, the 2-3.5-tonne capacity lift trucks are well suited to the needs of many general-purpose handling operations, particularly lower intensity operations,” it said.

A range of standard features aim to help drivers get on with the job, whether stacking in the warehouse or loading lorries in the yard. Various forks and carriages, including integrated side shift options, as well as a range of masts, including tilt options, are available to suit real-world operating needs with maximum fork heights up to 5500mm.

Like the existing FT and XT Hyster lift truck series’, the UT trucks are designed to help reduce damage, and downtime. Auxiliary hoses are centred on the free lift cylinder to eliminate hose twisting and there is positive hose retention with large radius bends to prevent hose scuffing. Tilt cylinders are sealed to minimise contamination and the radiator provides excellent cooling to help keep the truck up and running.

“Maintenance for the UT lift trucks is straight-forward, reducing service time and costs,” says Rob O’Donoghue, Director Solutions – Europe, Middle East and Africa, for Hyster Europe. “With easy service access and no special tools, laptops or PC required, this is an ideal option for operations looking to self-service. Cost-effective replacement parts are readily available, and the truck is covered by our standard Hyster warranty.”
