When evaluating opportunities to improve efficiencies, many operations often overlook the power source of their materials handling equipment. With the introduction of new advanced technologies and improvements on existing power sources, there are compelling reasons to look again at better matching a power source to an application.
To expedite that process, Hyster has introduced the Hyster® Power Match program with a dedicated Power Match team to help customers determine the best power solution based on their application and specific needs. These solutions are field tested, proven, and are currently running successfully in real applications, helping to navigate the complexities of today’s power needs and implement a range of power sources from a variety of brands.
Selecting the best power source involves researching and calculating several variables, including shifts, utility prices, space requirements, and operator discipline. This provides customers with a solution built solely around their unique operational requirements, rather than manufacturer constraints for limited power options and compatibility with a narrow range of lift truck models.
