Hyster Company’s LO2.5 center rider lift truck eases second-level order picking through a raising operator platform and the unit’s fully adjustable electronic power steering, automatic speed reduction in cornering, and its suspended platform with an operator-sensing floor mat. The electric steering reduces steer effort by 90%.

The control handle of the LO2.5 truck reduces the arm movement needed to change directions, helping to reduce fatigue and increase productivity, and allowing the operator to remain inside the truck footprint for protection. The truck also has coasting and lift/lower function buttons on both sides of the truck, allowing the operator to also walk next to the compartment and lift/lower the forks without being on-board or on one particular side of the truck. The LO2.5 lift truck’s electro-mechanical disc brakes are top-mounted for ease of maintenance or inspection.

The Hyster Tracker system provides a tiered offering of wireless monitoring, wireless access and wireless verifications. With basic monitoring, lift truck operations are able to utilize a variety of tracking capabilities, including hour meter, cost of operations, periodic maintenance, fault code, impact monitoring, operator training, park brake, seat belt violation, and speed alerts.
