Towing for tough loads

This hardworking model is based on the successful Hyster® low level order picker, and offers benefits such as low cost of operation and high-performance acceleration.

The Hyster® tow tractor helps manufacturing operations transport material to production lines and is ideal for the automotive and engineering industries and for any type of line feed operation.

Durable and reliable

The solid frame construction and reliable components ensure long-term reliability and durability.

The sturdy wraparound bumper plate protects the truck against impacts and damage and minimises repair costs.

Protected electronics, including the enclosed AC traction motor, sealed combi-controller (with IP65 rating), sealed electrical connectors and hall effect sensors and switches ensure excellent reliability and reduced servicing costs for maximum productivity.

Low cost of operation

CAN bus technology provides reduced wiring complexity and easy access to components. The tractor’s solid frame construction also ensures long-term reliability and durability.

Advanced control features, such as adjustable performance settings allow the truck to be tailored to the needs of the application, reducing energy consumption.

Regenerative braking reduces use of service brake and dissipates heat of traction motor, ensuring the longer life of key components.

Fast travel speeds

With a maximum travel speed up to 13km/h, travelling time is reduced on long runs between docking and picking areas.

Acceleration, travel and braking speeds can be adjusted by a service engineer to the unique needs of the application via the console.

Effortless electrical steering and automatic speed reduction on cornering also ensures excellent control and high productivity.


Scooter control and electric steering reduces the arm movement required to change direction, keeping the driver within the truck footprint at all times. This provides added protection and reduces operator fatigue resulting in increased productivity.

The platform sensor, which detects when the operator is on board, covers the entire platform floor, which along with the high, soft touch, back rest, allows operators to locate the most comfortable driving position.

The wide and long operator platform provides increased comfort allowing easier passage through to optimise picking on both sides of the truck.

A foot controlled lifting platform option facilitates up to second level picking and limits the amount of reaching the operator has to do from rack to pallet, reducing operator fatigue.

Intelligent on-board diagnostics

The truck’s low maintenance AC traction motor with built-in thermal protection is fully enclosed for protection against damage and debris, minimising service downtime.

CANbus system and diagnostic control is monitored via the console or a single plug-point plus fault codes can be displayed on the console for easy service identification.

A one-piece hood provides easy access to key components and the AC motor cover is easily removed by two screws to provide full access to all the main components.
