With a comprehensive range of rugged forklift trucks tailored to the needs of the building materials industry, Hyster has solutions to support performance, efficiency, and sustainability in materials handling operations.
WHAT’S YOUR CHALLENGE?
Hyster offers a range of forklift trucks designed for various building material handling tasks.
FOR INDOOR PALLETISED HANDLING
Hyster® four-wheel electric cushion tyre forklifts excel in indoor environments, efficiently loading, unloading, and transporting palletized materials. With load capacities ranging from 2200 to 5500 kg, they are built to provide reliable performance in tight spaces, such as warehouses storing building materials.
FOR SPECIAL LOADS
Hyster internal combustion engine lift trucks are equipped to handle diverse building materials, meeting the needs of an industry where customers may demand products in many different shapes or sizes. They can also be fitted with attachments like multiple forks or clamps, enhancing their adaptability for handling variable loads.
FOR HEAVY DUTY TASKS
Hyster high-capacity forklift trucks and container handlers have the power to take on heavy-duty tasks like handling stacks of blocks, precast elements, and pipes. With load capacities exceeding 8000 kg, these trucks can be equipped with attachments to handle heavy and awkward materials.
5 REASONS TO CHOOSE HYSTER LIFT TRUCKS FOR HANDLING BUILDING MATERIALS
1. Rugged Performance in Tough Environments
Operations, manufacturing, storing, or transporting building materials expose lift trucks to extreme temperature variations, dust, and dirt. Hyster lift trucks are engineered for reliability in arduous conditions. For example, the Hyster A Series features robust powertrain components that thrive in industrial applications. The optional on-demand cooling system provides optimal operating temperatures, while various protective features safeguard the truck components from rugged conditions.
2. Achieve Sustainability Goals
Many businesses in the building materials industry are dedicated to driving sustainability in their operations. Transitioning from internal combustion forklifts to Hyster electric trucks helps significantly reduce emissions while also improving air quality for operators and other workers. When matched with the right application and operating intensity, lithium-ion batteries for Hyster forklifts may not only have a longer lifespan but also reduce waste and energy consumption.
3. Support Specific Health & Safety Processes
Safety is paramount for many materials handling applications. The optional Dynamic Stability System (DSS) on Hyster A Series lift trucks aims to enhance stability, helping to prevent incidents that could disrupt operations and lead to higher insurance costs. Operator assistance features like enhanced lighting, camera systems, and load weight systems are also available to support operators depending on the specific application needs and may help contribute to safe operations.
4. Efficient Handling of Variable Loads
Building materials come in various shapes, sizes, and weights. Hyster A Series lift trucks offer versatility and performance while handling challenging loads, at the same time reducing fuel consumption and maintenance costs. Hyster high-capacity forklift trucks and container handlers, for loads of 8 tonnes or more, are also compatible with a range of attachments designed for efficient handling of diverse materials, helping to minimise damage and enhance operational efficiency.
5. Precision and Efficiency through Telematics
With the ability to grant truck access exclusively to trained operators, Hyster Tracker telematics helps minimise errors and supports safety. By tracking training updates, the wireless asset management system also has the ability to reinforce desired behaviours among operators. This aids operational efficiency and may reduce overall materials handling costs. The Hyster telematics solution also provides real-time impact monitoring and incident data, offering insights for route optimisation and operational enhancements. In a sector where precision matters, telematics may not only refine operator performance but also have the potential to elevate the entire materials handling process.
