Hyster Europe has launched an ultra-compact lithium-ion pallet truck for loads up to 1.5 tonnes. The new PC1.5 Pallet Truck, powered by a lithium-ion battery, can deliver greater efficiency than a hand pallet truck.
“For those currently using hand pallet trucks in the warehouse, switching to the new PC1.5 brings efficiency gains, without complex maintenance requirements,” says Matt Hardy, Solutions Manager EMEA for Hyster Europe. “Operations with lean fleets will benefit from these dependable pallet trucks, that are ready to go when needed.”
Simple to use, the new lithium-ion pallet trucks offer significant benefits to the operator compared to a hand pallet truck, with powered travelling, lifting and lowering. Despite the small and lightweight design, the Hyster® PC1.5 can lift up to 1.5 tonnes and helps overcome manual handling concerns when pushing or pulling heavy loads.
The tough and robust frame is extremely compact for use in tight spaces, and the truck is designed to give good performance on gradients, helping to support operator productivity. The motorised pallet truck design can work at a higher intensity than a hand pallet truck, helping to reduce the strain on operators.
When the lithium-ion battery needs replacing, operators get a re-charge alert and, in just six seconds, can exchange it, keeping the operation running with minimal interruption. A spare battery is included to support continuous operation, while an optional large battery with three-hour fast charger is available where the application demands it.
“The ultra-compact PC1.5 pallet truck is designed to be tough and reliable enough to stand-up to daily operational challenges, but with a low cost of ownership,” says Matt. “It is easy to service, with simple maintenance requirements, similar to a hand pallet truck.”
The model features maintenance free components, such as a brushless drive motor and lithium-ion battery, as well as a durable steel frame and protective cover, and 60-second drive wheel replacement.

HYSTER has been building lift trucks for over 70 years. The HYSTER story began in 1929 in the North American Lumber industry, with the supply of logging winches. The name HYSTER came from the cries of the workmen-"hoist'er".
The company then began to look for ways to improve general materials handling, and in 1934 built their first piece of mobile lifting equipment called a "cranemobile" which would later become known as the "karry krane".
The first HYSTER lift truck was built in 1935 and by the end of 1940's, HYSTER lift trucks, of various types could be found on ports and docksides, and loading timber yards throughout the U.S.A. and other parts of the world.
In the 1950s, HYSTER established its European headquarter in England, and then built its forklift manufacturing plants in the Netherlands, Scotland, Ireland and Italy, as well as in Australia. In late 1950s, HYSTER invented "Monotrol Pedal Technology" which controls both directions and acceleration. This technology was one of the most advanced technologies and has been used in forklift industry till now. With the developing of its business, HYSTER has built 14 manufacturing plants all over the world with a 16% world market share.
HYSTER Company is the first U.S. lift truck manufacturer to receive ISO9002 registration. The Testing Center which was built in 1960s in Portland is the biggest and best equipped lift truck testing center in the world. Today customers consider the word "HYSTER" and "lift truck" to be synonymous. We, HYSTER China with such a proud heritage will strive hard to make sure that doesn't change.
