NACCO Materials Handling Group has announced the introduction of a range of UTILEV brand forklift trucks into certain markets, which provides an attractive option for users across many industries who require materials handling equipment but may not need advanced functionality.

These IC-powered counterbalance lift trucks offer an uncomplicated approach to materials handling, providing affordable, reliable and cost-effective materials handling solutions in applications, where materials handling equipment is needed intermittently during the working week. The range of UTILEV products includes multiple models in diesel, LPG or dual-fuel power.

What differentiates UTILEV forklift trucks from similar offerings available on the market today is that these trucks will be backed up by a network of specially chosen, experienced, independent distributors who offer a wide range of support services to their customers.  Offering a solution, which will reliably meet productivity targets, while keeping operating costs low, the UTILEV forklift trucks have been designed to be easy to operate and maintain, delivering “Utility you can trust”.
