Hyster Europe has launched a new 11-tonne empty container handler for stacking up to 9 high (8’6”).
There is a total of 9 new Empty Container Handler models in the new series for Hyster, with 5 double handlers for handling up to 9 high (8’6”) as well as 4 single handlers for up to 8 high (8’6”).
The new Hyster® H11XM-ECD9 enables the operator to handle two 40ft reefer containers with ease, even when both refrigerator units are positioned at the same side, which would normally cause an offset load.
With the total global container fleet growing, as well as the average size/weight of containers, Hyster has been working closely with customers to refine and improve its products and help reduce the cost per container moved, while including various ergonomic features for drivers. The new Hyster® Empty Container Handler range has been developed to again lead the way for customers.
Newly designed reinforced spreaders feature CANbus controls, and there is a choice of different container engagement systems. The mast has also been redesigned to accommodate the heavier weights of containers and double container handling. The Empty Container Handler also offers a reliable and efficient engine with various performance modes to help reduce fuel consumption. This helps the new Hyster® Empty Container Handlers to deliver an excellent return on investment and low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
