Mercedes power for Hyster

,

Hyster Europe has chosen Mercedes-Benz/MTU engines to power its forthcoming Stage V compliant big truck range for European customers.

Lift trucks over 8 tonnes, Container handlers and reach-stackers will be equipped with the Stage V-compliant Mercedes-Benz/ MTU Series 1000 and 1100 engines.

The engines have been specially designed for industrial applications such as material handling and further developed to meet EU Stage V regulations. They are based on commercial vehicle engines from Daimler.

“Our heavy industry and port customers in Europe who will require a Stage V driveline, can continue to expect highly efficient trucks with low fuel and DEF consumption, benefiting from high productivity levels and fast operations with the power available.” said Jan Willem van den Brand, director big truck product strategy & solutions at Hyster Europe.
