Benefits of Hyster Robotics

Dual Operating Modes

Can run autonomously on the programmed path and can switch to manual mode with the touch of a button, helping accommodate changing operational needs.

Infrastructure Free Navigation

Integrates into existing operations by mapping structural features to self-locate and navigate; does not require laser reflectors, guide wires or magnets.

Local Support

Hyster has an extensive network of exclusive dealers who service and support robotic solutions locally for fast service with less downtime.


Has the ability to take on small tasks and expand as operational requirements grow.


Hyster Robotic Reach

Automation to gain independence from skilled labor shortage

The dual-mode, pantograph robotic reach truck from Hyster is the first of its kind, capable of autonomously storing and retrieving loads from locations just over 400 inches (33 feet) [DG1] high to maximize vertical storage space and address labor shortages. The robotic solution can serve both single and double-deep pallet storage and offers a 3,500-pound capacity rating, ideal for distribution centers challenged with inventory growth.

  • Autonomously Charged
  • Deposit or remove pallets from just over 400 inches high
  • Operates within vast temperatures and integrates with variety of warehouse management systems
  • Ideal fit for distribution centers

Hyster Robotic Tow Tractor

Free up labor with smart resource allocation

The robotic tow tractor offers an autonomous solution specifically for long, repetitive tasks such as milk runs, parts sequencing and garbage hauls with a 15,000-pound capacity rating. Ideal for tasks that typically lead to higher operator turnover, automating these mundane, repetitive tasks can help retain talent by promoting your skilled operators to more engaging, value-added tasks. If needed, the robotic tow tractor can also be used in manual mode for immediate task adding to the flexibility of the solution.

  • Standard trailer handling configurations
  • Kitting and sequencing in assembly operations
  • Stock replenishment and material hauling 
  • Fully autonomous trailer hitching, battery charging
