Hyster updates Reach Truck range with tilting mast feature


Hyster Europe is simplifying warehouse operations where space is at a premium with a tilting mast fork lift.

Extending the range of its Reach Truck series, the new, compact machine provides improved manoeuvrability, even in narrow aisles.

“The new Hyster Reach Truck models are designed for retail, food and drink warehouses operations in mind, lifting up to 1,400kg and reaching heights of up to 7.5m” said Timo Antony, area business director for Central Europe, Hyster. “These operations typically have tight spaces, so we have included a mast which can be tilted back.”

An integral side shift and compact chassis design also help improve productivity, storing and retrieving goods even in tight spaces.

The titled mast now features on the R1.0E, 1.2E and 1.4E models of the range with Hyster able to maintain the same durability, as well as visibility and driveability for the operator.

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.
