Hyundai Launches NEW 
10/13/15BTR-9 Series Electric Forklifts

Norcross, GA Hyundai Forklift, a leading material-handling equipment manufacturer, is pleased to announce the launch of their 10/13/15BTR-9 series 24 volt electric counterbalance forklifts. Operators can look forward to outstanding productivity, maneuverability, easy maintenance and comfort with these forklifts, which are ideal for applications requiring a tight turning radius such as distribution centers, loading docks and cold storage. 

Hyundai’s 10/13/15BTR-9 series forklifts were engineered for high efficiency and optimal performance.  All three 24 volt models are designed for ideal drive and lift performance.  Utilizing enclosed, low maintenance AC technology, drive and pump motors ensure greater acceleration, gradeability, faster travel and lift speeds and excellent durability.  The Zapi controller provides smooth operation and protection for high and low voltage, overheating and fault recording.  All three units offer 2 and 3-stage masts to 236” lift and load capacities of 2,200 lbs, 2,750 lbs, 3,300 lbs, respectively, making handling and lifting large loads a breeze.


In addition to power, the 10/13/15BTR-9 forklifts offer an efficient, smooth running and compact design to provide operators with enhanced performance and improved productivity.  The combination of a 3-wheel design and rear wheel drive offers central pivot turning, which allows the driver to work in confined spaces such as the narrow aisles of a warehouse.  This series also has a unique curve control feature, which limits travel speed based on the turning radius, leading to a smooth, precise turning operation for the driver.  An anti-roll back system offers protection against machine roll backs on an incline as well as exceptional ramp start-up capabilities.  Operators have the option of four different performance modes, High, Normal, Economic and Turtle Mode, providing ultimate flexibility in all working conditions.  An electronic directional control handle provides responsive forward/reverse travel.

Safety is a top priority with Hyundai’s 10/13/15BTR-9 series forklifts.  All three units have advanced safety features including an optimized lift cylinder arrangement which gives operators wider visibility on all sides as well as a panoramic mirror that expands the driver’s view when backing up.  A secondary horn button is mounted to the hydraulic lift lever, for easy access and safe operation.  A strong overhead guard exceeding CEE and ANSI regulations offers operators the utmost protection from falling objects above.  When forks are being lowered on the 10/13/15BTR-9 series, a down-control valve maintains a controlled speed and similarly, the down-safety valve prevents forks from dropping down in case of sudden damage of the hydraulic line.  An Operator Presence Sensing System (OPSS) makes most drive movements, including Lift Lock, Tilt Lock and Drive Lock, impossible when an operator is not in the seat.  Halogen headlights and rear LED combination lights offer excellent visibility in all circumstances.  Rear reflectors mounted on the counterweight enhance safety for the driver and anyone nearby.  

Hyundai’s 10/13/15BTR-9 series forklifts are not only productive and safe but also comfortable.  Despite their compact design, these models have ample room for operators.  A low entrance height makes entering and exiting the machine safe and easy.  An adjustable steering wheel enables operators to achieve their most comfortable driving position, necessary for long day’s work.  The angle of the steering column can easily also be adjusted through a lever on the right-hand side of the steering column for added comfort. 

Maintenance on Hyundai’s 10/13/15BTR-9 forklifts is painless with an ideal arrangement of crucial servicing components ensuring easy access.  Each model’s battery compartment is equipped with a side removal assembly making battery replacement quick and convenient.   All three models are also equipped with an advanced LCD monitor with a 3.2 inch graphic smart display allowing the operator to see his speed and accelerator level, steer angle, travel direction, battery discharge indicator, hour meter, working mode and brake oil reservoir.

Hyundai’s 10/13/15BTR-9 series forklifts can easily accommodate various attachments to meet any application need.
