Hyster Europe is pleased to introduce an electric tow tractor, the LO5.0T. The new tow tractor can pull 5 tonnes and meets the needs of manufacturing operations to carry material to production lines, making it ideal for the automotive and engineering industries and for any type of line feed operation.
The new Hyster tow tractor provides a 5 tonnes pulled mass capability with powerful acceleration and a maximum travel speed of 7.0 km/h with load and 12.0 km/h without load. Featuring a high performance 2.6 kW AC traction motor, 24V (465 or 620 Ah) battery and regenerative braking, the LO5.0T tow tractors offer excellent energy efficiency and low cost of operation.
The intelligent design includes a universal flange, suitable for many types of connectors, ensuring an ideal solution for a wide range of applications. These include automotive assembly and component supply operations, industries operating parts line feed, mail and parcel distribution services, transport and health care services and wholesale distribution.
The tow tractor design is based on the recently launched low level order picker from Hyster and includes scooter control for the operator, which has received excellent customer reviews. The scooter with finger tip controls is mounted on a tilted plate helping to reduce the operator’s arm and shoulder movement and minimise driver fatigue.
The work platform has a step height of 150mm and a width of 520mm allowing easier pass through, with easy ‘on and off’ access, helping minimise operator movement and saving valuable time. A creep speed button also allows the operator to move the tow tractor to the next drop off location without having to mount the vehicle.
Performance settings such as speed reduction on cornering can be adjusted via a console by a service engineer. The tow tractor performance can therefore be adapted according to the application to deliver the best performance over a full shift. Intensive field tests have demonstrated that the LO5.0T is a highly reliable model with a robust, steel frame, IP65 controllers and excellent service access. Electric components have been mounted on a unique support panel that is fitted with three fasteners for quick access.
The new tow tractor has a wide range of drive wheel options to enable the customer to select what is best for their application and it is available adapted for cold stores. The tow tractor is available with two start systems, a key switch or a key pad, and Hyster offers a choice of chargers with three different lateral battery extraction options.
Hyster products are supported by an extensive network of authorised distribution partners, providing coverage and expert service across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), the Americas and Asia-Pacific, helping to maximise customer’s productivity and efficiency, and reduce overall operating costs.
