HY Shield Protect

Take control of maintenance costs for years to come

The extended protection plan that keeps costs low, uptime high, and maintenance on schedule


Your Hyster® lift truck is built for years of hard work and dependable service. Now there’s an Extended Protection Plan that goes the distance:


HY Shield Protect is an enhanced Extended Protection Plan that combines comprehensive equipment coverage with up to one year of periodic maintenance (PM). It’s an all-in-one program that gives you control today over maintenance costs in the future.

  • During the first year, up to four scheduled maintenance services are provided at no additional cost.
  • Customers commit to a HY Shield Maintenance periodic maintenance package to keep the protection program active for the remainder of the term.
  • Equipment is dealer-serviced, which reduces downtime and adds warranty value.
  • Covers more heavy-duty applications than other lift truck manufacturers.


HY Shield Protect lets equipment owners take a lower cost of ownership approach to service. These advantages go right to your bottom line:

  • Packaged plan delivers a standardized spend on forklift maintenance.
  • Original equipment recommended maintenance is completed on schedule, to minimize service costs and increase uptime.
  • Helps avoid unnecessary repair expenditures after standard warranty expires.
  • Reduces out-of-pocket expenses since PM costs are covered by the HY Shield Maintenance PM program.


Customer contracts for PM services as outlined in the Hyster Service Maintenance manual.

Dealer will perform up to four PMs during the first year.

OE parts are installed by Certified Hyster Technicians.

Cost of the HY Shield Essential PM plan will be quoted by the dealer.

HY Shield Protect plan does not cover normal-wear items not included under the Extended Protection plan or PM Services.

Forward-thinking coverage that protects your investment

Coverage under the HY Shield Protect plan includes parts and labor with no deductible. Please note that plans are not transferrable.
