To help customers decrease total cost of ownership, Hyster Co., Greenville, N.C., deployed the new Kubota 2.5L premium LPG engine on its S40-70FT 4-wheel Hyster H50FT inbodycushion tire and H40-70FT 4-wheel pneumatic tire Fortis lift truck series.

The new Kubota engine also matches Hyster’s need to deliver extreme durability to its customers by featuring the main components from a diesel engine without using a lot of fuel. The new engine also reduces unit vibration for operators and noise levels for those working around the lift trucks—nine decibels less than the previous engine.
