The hinged elevating operator cabin for the Hyster® RS46 ReachStacker has been announced as a finalist in the safety and innovation award categories for the 2020 FLTA awards (Fork Lift Truck Association Awards for Excellence).
The tough Hyster® RS46 ReachStacker with a hinged elevating operator cabin that helps to optimise visibility has been recognised in both the safety and innovation categories in the 2020 FLTA Awards shortlist.
Reduce damage and improve visibility
With the ‘hinged’ elevating cabin, the Hyster® RS46 offers direct visibility of 2nd rail containers even when there is a high cube container on a railcar in the first rail position. Operators have direct visibility of the top corner pockets on second rail. This helps to reduce damage and provides greater efficiency.
Plus, compared to a mast, when the cab on the Hyster® ReachStacker is lowered, it does not increase the truck height. This offers benefits for road transport while also helping to prevent the rearwards view from being affected.
Design features help control costs
With fewer components, as well as reduced sideways movement, shock and vibration when driving, the cab offers an optimal ergonomic driver environment. These design features also reduce wear and tear, and maintenance, to help port and terminal operations to control costs and maximise uptime.
