Hyster extends Fortens range

Hyster has extended its Fortens forklift range with the introduction of an 8-9 tonne capacity series. The new H8.0-9.0FT Fortens series is designed for industries such as paper, wood, beverage, metals, ports, automotive or construction materials. The high capacity, compact design also benefits operations with high attachment usage.

Hans Seijger, managing director for Hyster Europe, Middle East & Africa said: “This series wraps up the introduction programme for the entire 1-9 tonne Fortens diesel/LPG truck range, which started back in 2005. This new series allows us to compete strongly in the 8-9 tonne segment and demonstrates that we can offer flexible materials handling solutions with low cost of operation for almost every customer application.”

The H8.0-9.0FT has a compact design, ensuring that space, loads moved per hour and on-site efficiency is maximised to maintain low operating costs. It shares many features with the successful H6.0-7.0FT series, including the frame construction, low maintenance oil immersed brakes, leak-free hydraulics and drivetrain.
