Tow tractor introduced by Hyster

Hyster is now offering an electric tow tractor which can pull loads of up to 5 tonnes and is designed for transporting materials to and from production lines.

Maximum speed is 7km/hour when loaded and 12km/hour without load. The tractor has a universal flange suitable for many types of connectors, so it can be used for a range of applications.

The L05.0T is easy to get on and off with a step height of 150mm, and a creep speed button enables the operator to move the tow tractor to the next location without having to get back on the vehicle.

Performance settings can be adjusted by a service engineer so the vehicle can be adapted to suit each application.
