Hyster has unveiled two new lithium-ion battery-powered forklifts, the three-wheel J32-40UTTL and four-wheel J30-70UTL.
Hyster says the new models will help companies meet sustainability targets
The UTTL is available in capacity ranges of 3,200 lb. (1.5 T) to 4,000 lb (1.8 T), while the UTL is available from 3,000 lb. (1.4 T) to 7,000 lb. (3.2 T).
Hyster says the two new models provide a new avenue for electrifying forklift applications with less demanding requirements in industries such as chemicals and plastics, third-party logistics and trucking.
“The counterbalanced forklift market is seeing an accelerating shift towards electric, signalling electrification and sustainability as priorities across industries and in materials handling in particular,” says James Nielson, Hyster’s senior business product manager for motive power and electrification.
“Advances in motive power, especially lithium-ion, are the catalysts driving the transition.
“These new UT models deliver a competitive value that makes lithium-ion more accessible to more applications, without complex warranty or support limitations.”
Hyster says the new models’ advanced electric power source, including zero tailpipe emissions, fast charging times, consistent power delivery and zero battery maintenance, will help companies meet sustainability targets and productivity goals.
The lithium-ion battery can fully charge in about two-and-a-half hours and opportunity charging allows the trucks to work for the majority of a full day.
The trucks also have a number of ergonomic features, including a low step height, a small, adjustable steering wheel and a wide-view mast that helps maximize visibility and supports operator comfort.

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.
Shanghai HYSTER has been active in China for many years. Our commitment to serving our customers has led us to make a major investment in China.
