GREENVILLE, NC (November 5, 2018) – The materials handling industry is ever-changing with new technologies being introduced in increasingly shorter intervals. The new Hyster® End Rider series embodies the future of warehousing and materials handling, integrating innovative technologies and forward-thinking design so customers can be better prepared for the changes of the future.

The Hyster B60ZAC2 and B60-80ZHD2 End Rider series is available in single-, double- or triple-pallet 6,000 and 8,000 lb. capacity, and these lift trucks are engineered to take on demanding, heavy-duty applications in a multitude of operating conditions, including home centers, food distribution and food processing. These pallet trucks are equipped with revolutionary features and durable components that allow operations to run faster, leaner and more efficiently.

Some of these features include:

  • Operator interface – an extended operator platform provides more usable space (the most usable foot space in the industry), allowing operators to adjust stance to provide postural relief, and the cushion reduces shock and vibration during operation
  • LED lights – industry-exclusive fork lights and platform lights allow for optimized task lighting and help give operators and pedestrians a heightened awareness of the truck location and platform edges in particular applications
  • Variable bidirectional coast – industry-exclusive and patented coast control allows the operator to control forward traction or slow down and reverse direction while order-picking
  • Intelligent suite –Intelligent lift/lower, Intelligent acceleration, Intelligent slow downTM and Intelligent cruise help provide operators the flexibility to adapt to task and application conditions for improved productivity, load stability and ergonomics.
