Whether the challenge is the size and weight of the load, or dealing with heat and dust, Hyster has a range of solutions to help support steel handling applications.
At the recent Hyster® HUB event, an impressive demonstration showed just two of the available options for handling 20 tonne steel coils. Different operations may have different requirements even when handling the same load type.
For applications that want to use a high capacity Hyster® forklift, a coil ram attachment can be an effective way of handling heavy steel coils. At the Hyster® HUB, this was demonstrated by the 25 tonne capacity Hyster® H25XM-12 with a rotating seat for efficient driving in reverse.

Other steel applications may prefer to use a Hyster® ReachStacker for placing the coils in the second or third row. A 20 tonne steel coil was handled with ease using a La Cisa C-Hook attachment at the Hyster® HUB. This can also be changed to enable handling of containers.
