Multi tool Hyster ReachStacker handles varied loads

The Hyster® Special Projects Engineering Department has delivered a flexible solution to enable a Hyster® ReachStacker to overcome the challenge of handling varied load types.

“The customer needed to use the same ReachStacker to handle many types of loads such as standard 20ft and 40ft containers, high top/curtain containers, cargo trailers and steel coils,” says Chris van der Werdt, Commercial Manager for Hyster Big Trucks. “To maintain productivity, it was important that the customer could easily switch between different attachments quickly and reliably.”

Hyster developed a solution where a unique tool changer is fitted to the Hyster® RS46-41XLS CH ReachStacker to allow easy exchange of attachments.  When a different tool is needed, the mast can simply be lowered into the required attachment.  

 “This Hyster® ReachStacker can now be used with a standard container spreader, an intermodal spreader or a C-hook attachment offering maximum flexibility with minimal fuss,” he says. “The wheelbase was also extended to 7.5m for extra capacity on long load centers.”

The tough Hyster® RS45-46 range of 12 heavy duty ReachStackers offers outstanding maneuverability and superior handling speeds with no loss of power at full capacity for demanding loads, and the capability to lift in excess of 33 tonnes in a third row.

“While a range of Hyster ReachStackers exist to suit a number of different applications and even the most rugged environments, this bespoke solution has added real value to the customer and allowed them to overcome a very difficult challenge in their operation,” says Chris van der Werdt, Commercial Manager for Hyster Big Trucks.

“To handle various types of loads a number of different trucks may sometimes be needed.  However, with this solution a large number of different activities can be performed with just one ReachStacker, resulting in significant savings in operating costs,” adds Chris. “That is also why the reliability offered by a Hyster® ReachStacker is essential to ensure maximum truck availability.”

The Hyster Special Engineering Department is located at the Nijmegen plant in the Netherlands, the global centre for Hyster Big Trucks design, development and testing.
