The workhorse

Made to work hard, and smart

Low cost of operation

Optimized for your demanding 5000 lb. applications, the CT2 forklift doesn’t carry the added weight of components that are designed for heavier capacity trucks. This weight optimization, coupled with a solid performing powertrain and our electronically controlled powershift transmission, make this truck a spirited performer.

The CT2 forklift provides excellent balance of fuel consumption and productivity, as well as outstanding value and impressive savings.

Utilizing a documented industry standard test cycle, the CT2 model used less fuel than the major competition. This translates into lower costs and an improvement to your bottom line.

Efficient and productive

Hyster® Variable Power Technology™ provides adjustable performance mode that offer the flexibility to maximize fuel economy or productivity to match application needs. With two selectable performance modes, the CT2 series can be tailored to achieve a balance of enhanced performance and superior fuel economy, or to maximize productivity during peak business periods when moving more loads is integral to the success of your operation.

Easy to service

You haven’t fully tested the CT2 series until you’ve serviced it for the first time. That’s when the “cowl-to-counterweight” access and one-piece floorplate reveal other engineering advantages made to keep your truck running smoothly. Configured so you don’t have to remove the LP tank to open the hood, the CT2 lift truck is easy to service, so you can get back to being productive. And when needed, your Hyster dealer is ready with fast, cost-efficient support.

Operator comfort

The operator compartment features a low step height, ample foot room and a fully adjustable seat and steering column. Vibrations are minimal, due to the isolated powertrain. The Hyster CT2 series has been designed with a low-profile counterweight and LP tank mount which can lessen operator fatigue in operations that require significant rearward travel.
