Dock-to-stock and everything in between.

Built to enhance productivity in manufacturing by transporting material to and from production lines.

Offering excellent manoeuvrability and proven performance, this range of rider tow tractors ensures just-in-time requirements are achieved with optimum efficiency.

Compact construction

Capable of towing up to 7000kg or 8000kg respectively, the Hyster® T7.0HS3 three-wheel and T8.0HS4 four-wheel tractors are ideal for any type of line feed operation, particularly in the automotive and engineering industries.

The tractor’s compact, solid frame construction and reliable components ensure long-term reliability and durability.

Adjustable controls

Acceleration, travel and braking speeds can be adjusted by a service engineer to the unique needs of the application via the console. Anti-roll back software control also makes starting on ramps easier.

The four-wheel tow tractor is designed to offer good stability over rough, uneven or broken surfaces, and features power-assisted steering with a heated cab option.

Operator-friendly design

High level driver control, adjustable suspension seat, reduced torque steering point and an impressively low step height all help reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity.

Power assisted steering is available on the 4-wheel model and a heated cab and slam locking doors are also available on the 4-wheel model.

Low cost of ownership

Advanced control features, such as easy diagnostics via a handheld controller, allow the tractor to be tailored to the unique needs of the application resulting in a lower cost of ownership.

Minimised service downtime

The low maintenance AC traction motor with built-in thermal protection minimises service downtime.
