Hyster launches 2-3 tonne forklift series

Hyster is introducing into European production a series of 2.0 – 3.0 tonne capacity forklift trucks, built in the UK – the H2.0–3.0XT series, available with either diesel, LPG or dual fuel engines.

Hyster XT Series“The XT series is perfectly suited to the majority of everyday applications and we anticipate that the wide appeal of this machine will make it a popular choice,” says Karen Calver, product strategy manager for Hyster in Europe.

“The addition of the XT series to the Hyster portfolio gives businesses even greater opportunity to specify a forklift that meets their operational needs and their budget.”

The vehicles use the Yanmar diesel engine which has super quick glow plugs allowing the engine to start quickly and reliably under cold conditions, delivering a cleaner exhaust by advancing the fuel injection timing based on water temperature.

For the PSI 2.4L LPG engine option, there are two engine modes, HiP for maximum productivity and ECO-eLo for the best fuel economy.

The new XT series will be built at Hyster’s factory at Craigavon in Northern Ireland. “The Craigavon factory has been central to producing many innovative Hyster products over the past 35 years. We are proud that our latest product – the XT series – will be manufactured in the UK and exported all over the world,” said Calver.
