New UTILEV® Class III helps fit customer needs

Retail stores and a variety of other light-duty, pallet truck applications need equipment that is charged and ready to work on demand. However, because space is at a premium, these operations frequently lack dedicated battery changing and charging areas. As a result, many rely on manual equipment that requires increased operator effort and limits productivity. The new UTILEV® UT15WE offers 3,300 pounds of lift capacity, perfect for most light-duty, low lift applications. The convenient on-board charging system keeps the two, 12-volt AGM maintenance-free batteries charged so the unit is ready when needed.

Five purchase options, offering different fork and load backrest configurations, help ensure the UT15WE fits the needs of the application. The UT15WE provides an attractive price point, backed by a 12-month manufacturer’s limited warranty and the support of an extensive network of more than 340 reseller locations throughout North America.

“UTILEV trucks are designed to meet the needs of a market segment that is continuing to increase year after year,” says Mick McCormick, Vice President of Warehouse Solutions with Hyster-Yale Group. “We want to provide our customer with the right solution for their application. For customers using their truck a few hours throughout the day, UTILEV trucks, and the support network behind them, provide an excellent low cost option.”
