Hyster has released its new UT Series of counterbalance lift trucks, pallet trucks and stackers in the Asia-Pacific region aimed at customers seeking cost-effective solutions for simple everyday materials handling tasks.
The UT Series is available with diesel or dual-fuel options in six different capacities from 1.5 to 3.5t. It is billed as an affordable and uncomplicated range for industries including food and beverage, warehousing, manufacturing and logistics.
The value proposition “Meets the need. Makes the move” relates to customers who don’t need particular advanced functionality, but prefer proven materials handling solutions backed by a supplier they can trust.
Hyster says this uncomplicated approach to materials handling - backed by 24/7 service - is particularly attractive to customers whose materials handling equipment is required to work intermittently over a working week, on an as-required basis, typically up to 4000 hours a year.
“Hyster’s Asia-Pacific network of especially chosen, experienced, independent dealers with outstanding service backup offers a wide range of support services delivering reliability and productivity to their customers,” says Hyster-Yale Asia-Pacific Managing Director, Tony Fagg.
“The advantage the new range brings with its ‘meets the need’ value proposition is fine-tuned responsiveness to customers’ individual needs, including varying hours of service, different applications, cost of ownership, capability, strength and dependability of the product,” says Fagg.
Rather than pigeonhole basic utility needs – or offer one-size-fits-all solutions – the UT Series philosophy opens a discussion with customers on “What are your specific needs and how long do you need to use it for on a daily basis.”
“Then our established Asia-Pacific dealer network can bring their extensive expertise to deliver cost-effective, quality solutions for individual customers,” says Tony Fagg.
The ergonomically designed operator compartment, with a familiar automotive layout means that drivers will be able to work comfortably, preventing tiredness during handling operations. A range of standard features and options help to ensure that the truck is configured to the needs of the application.
Thanks to the simplicity of the components and specification, servicing can be carried out quickly and easily, even when PCs, laptops or diagnostic tools are not available.
The use of proven high-quality components, as well as efficient filtration and excellent cooling, results in the reliable operation of the trucks and lower wear and tear. This, together with a standard warranty and the fast availability of cost-effective replacement parts, helps to reduce service and maintenance requirements and costs.
