Materials handling equipment specialist Hyster is expanding its UT Series with the new H5.0-7.0UT range of 5-7 tonne forklifts. This article first appeared in the October 2021 issue of Food and Drink Business.

Compared to its 4-5 tonne range predecessor, the new forklifts allow for additional lifting capacity for loading and unloading heavier goods.

Hyster area business director Pacific Mark Chaffey said to construct the new forklifts, the designers and engineers put themselves in the driver’s seat.

“For drivers to be productive and safe, they need to be confident in their equipment – and the equipment must be designed to respond to diverse site conditions, with the features that global experience tells us are the driver’s choice.

“The result was a robust and quality engineered forklift, designed to be the ideal solution to meet less frequent materials handling needs, while still offering the outstanding performance and service backup that Hyster is known for globally,” said Chaffey.

The forklift maintains high visibility of the load with its wide mast view to optimise safety.
