Hyster Europe customers will be able to cut emissions with the company's forthcoming EU Stage V compliant Big Truck range for European customers powered by Mercedes-Benz/ MTU engines.

Lift trucks over 8t, container handlers and reachstackers will be equipped with the Stage V-compliant Mercedes-Benz/ MTU Series 1000 and 1100 engines. The engines have been specially designed for industrial applications such as material handling and further developed to meet EU Stage V regulations. They are based on commercial vehicle engines from Daimler.

“Our heavy industry and port customers in Europe who will require a Stage V driveline, can continue to expect highly efficient trucks with low fuel and DEF consumption, benefiting from high productivity levels and fast operations with the power available.” says Jan Willem van den Brand, director of big truck product strategy & solutions at Hyster Europe.

The engines are expected to support the durability of Hyster Big Trucks. They have been optimised to work well in intermittent duty applications, resulting in lower engine temperatures, less component wear and reduced noise levels. Sufficient power reserves also result in less stress and parts wear.

Mr van den Brand explained that the power ratings range from 129kW to 280kW depending on model.

“With the optimal match of engine sizes to the trucks and applications, customers can handle the heaviest of loads all day long, with quick turnaround times,” he says. “Customers can expect to boost productivity with more power available for faster operations whether it is handling containers in the Swedish winter or steel pipes in the hot Italian summer.”
