Customers asked for it and Hyster Company is delivering—a lift truck designed to operate in a variety of applications at a lower cost of acquisition and ownership.
Hyster recently unveiled its new H50XT truck, which outperforms the competition in fuel efficiency and productivity, while also offering extensive options, proven dependability, ease of serviceability, and a lower total cost of ownership.
“Understanding the needs of our customers is an important pillar of our global strategy,” said Michele Corini, vice-president of counterbalanced development for Hyster. “The new series addresses what our customers have asked us for: a competitively priced lift truck that operates in a variety of applications, but is still Hyster tough.”
Available for order soon, the new XT truck series will be offered in 4,000-, 5,000-, and 6,000-pound models. The series incorporates key design and component elements of the premium Hyster Fortis truck series, ensuring that the new trucks deliver superior dependability.
The new truck will be available with a PSI 2.4L dual-fuel engine featuring Hyster Variable Power Technology, which includes selectable performance modes that allow users to maximize productivity or fuel economy to fit specific application requirements. It delivers power at low speeds with accurate and responsive traction and hydraulic controls, allowing operators to place loads quickly where intended.
Hyster offers 130 lift truck models configured for gasoline, LPG, diesel, and electric power, with a capacity range from 2,000 to 105,000 lbs. Supported by a large and experienced dealer network, Hyster builds tough, durable lift trucks that deliver high productivity, low total cost of ownership, easy serviceability, and advanced ergonomic features, accompanied by parts, service, and training support.
