Innovative Hyster® container handling trucks for ports and inland terminals will be showcased at Med Ports from 17th – 19th April 2018 in Livorno, Italy.
At the Hyster Europe stand, delegates will have the opportunity to meet with experts and discuss the best Hyster® solutions for their specific port and terminal application needs. Experienced local Hyster® dealer CLS, which provides lift trucks from 1 to 56 tonnes across Italy as well as full service and maintenance in the field, will also be on hand to share their expertise.
One solution under the spotlight will be the new series of Hyster® Empty Container Handlers, with 4 single handlers lifting up to 8 high (8’6”) and 5 double handlers lifting up to 9 high (8’6”) available. Customers with single-handling operations will benefit from highly rugged and durable equipment that is designed for double-handling capability, while the double-handling capabilities for any container type offer inland terminal operations significant productivity advantages.
The new H11XM-ECD9 even 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.
The Med Ports show also provides one of the first opportunities to learn about the innovative, new elevating cabin option for the Hyster® RS46 ReachStacker. Developed in response to the needs of customers in heavy-duty port and terminal applications, the moveable cab is raised on a hinged arm instead of a mast and provides optimised visibility on the second rail when picking containers, for greater efficiency and reduced damage. Containers can even be picked from the second rail when there is another container on the first rail.
With the robust Hyster® cabin design, operators benefit from a comfortable environment with reduced sideways movement, shock and vibration when driving, while the ability to tilt the cabin makes handling high stacks more comfortable.
