The RS Series features an independently powered moveable cab; inclination and optical distance sensors; and robust boom and attachment structure designed for 1 million cycles. The RS Series offers models and options to accommodate several applications, including front stabilizers for second and third rail operations, and wide twist-lock, pin-style and trailer attachments.

While focusing on robustness and comfort, we also understand that time is money. That’s why the RS Series is engineered to provide optimal operating and fuel efficiency. The high-performance Cummins diesel engine are powerful, yet offer reduced fuel consumption and emissions. Features such as variable pumps adjust oil flow accordingly to provide quicker lifting cycles while also reducing fuel consumption.

As with all Hoist Material Handling equipment, the RS Series is forged in the USA. More than 75% of each truck is manufactured at our Midwest factory with the remaining components sourced from reputable companies, such as Dana, Cummins and Parker.

Hoist Material Handling’s line of BIG TRUCKS starts with a strong foundation. The modular design of the RS Series provides excellent serviceability without sacrificing strength or durability. The RS Series has been designed and tested to meet or exceed current, worldwide regulations for stability, sound levels and safety.

Anchoring the RS Series is the 100%-welded steel chassis, which boasts heavy steel cross supports to distributing weight evenly throughout the truck. Bolt-on components, such as fuel and hydraulic tanks, provide additional durability and optimal heat dissipation, as well as easy removal and attachment for repairs or shipping. Integrated lifting points also allow for safe handling and transport.

We understand the importance of being able to service your lift truck easily and efficiently. Whether it’s routine maintenance or on-site service call, the RS Series is designed to allow easy access to all integral components to minimize downtime.

Reach the entire drivetrain, hydraulics and filters via hinged panels and hoods supported by gas shocks. The popular hydraulic diagnostic multi-gauge provides operators and technicians various hydraulic pressure readings with just a twist of the dial, eliminating the need to tap into individual hydraulic lines.

Every component on the RS Series is sourced from a reputable vendor or manufactured by Hoist Material Handling. Utilizing the same domestic components throughout our product lines provides you with not only cost savings, but also a large inventory of parts available for immediate shipment.

The RS Series comes with a standard 12-month/2,000-hour warranty (parts and labor) with optional extended warranties up to 12,000 hours.


Utilizing CANbus technology, RemoteTech is a vehicle management system incorporated into the RS Series that provides onboard diagnostics and vehicle functions through a master digital display unit. RemoteTech’s master digital display unit replaces gauges, such as speedometer, fuel and engine temperature, allowing comprehensive vehicle monitoring from a central hub.

Vehicle functions, such as lifting and vehicle speeds, can be quickly adjusted remotely in just a few minutes. Service technicians can also quickly detect issues through RemoteTech’s master digital display unit and view or download the vehicle’s fault code history.

  • Unlike similar systems that rely on third-party companies to program and troubleshoot the system, RemoteTech is programmed and operated by Hoist Material Handling.
  • Automatically detects issues such as clogged filters, overheated engine, vehicle overload and more
  • Decreases downtime and repair costs by detecting and resolving issues early
  • Parameters such as lifting speeds and fingertip control functions can be quickly and easily customized to fit operator preference
