Hyster updates Matrix

Hyster has upgraded its Matrix reach truck to increase traction speed by eight per cent, and to deliver better performance, particularly for intense logistics and FMCG businesses.

Enhanced traction, pump and steer motors are designed to provide faster cycle times, especially over long distances, and with no change between laden and unladen speeds.

There are additional mast height options, and a redesigned overhead guard to improve visibility of the fork tips to minimise stock damage.

Robert O’Donoghue, senior product strategy manager, said: “Visibility is a major factor influencing an operator’s attitude towards warehouse equipment and is repeatedly cited in our discussions with end users.”

The 1,400kg – 2,500kg capacity Matrix series also features a new seat to further reduce vibration.
