Hyundai unveiled the 13BTR-9, part of a new line of battery-powered forklift trucks, at ProMat 2013 this week. The newly designed three-wheel forklifts are engineered for smooth running, increased productivity, and ease of maintenance. The ergonomically designed driver's space makes operating more comfortable, the company says.

The 24-volt forklift's features include a self-diagnostic LCD monitor, suspension seat, strong overhead guard, and durable rear drive unit.
