Hyundai electric forklift launch

Hyundai has launched a new series of three-wheeled electric forklifts. The 10/13/15BTR-9 series trucks have rear-drive and 24 V AC-power for both lifting and travelling.

Michel de Weert, European sales manager forklift and warehouse-equipment, said: “These new premium lift trucks with powerful motors and extended battery capacity ranging from 625 to 1,000 Ah are the result of a long development process supported by key customers through-out Europe.”

Hyundai’s BTR’s range from 1,000, 1,300 and 1,500 kg at 500 mm load centre. Depending on the capacity the wheelbase differs from 1,065 to 1,220 mm. The trucks are 990 mm wide and weigh, equipped with standard mast, about 2,390 to 2,850 kg.

They come with duplex and triplex masts for good visibility and have lifting heights up to 6,035 mm.
