The ‘masted’ H40-52XM-16CH trucks represent a refreshing concept, purposely developed to deliver these high ‘box-rates’ in first row stacking operations, at the lowest possible operational costs.
Constructed using proven components, these trucks feature the chassis and the complete drivetrain of the Hyster Reachstacker.
The rear-mounted cab position offers an optimum level of all-round visibility that is unique in this product segment. The driver is able to maintain a complete 40ft container in their line of sight, during the entire handling operation with minimal head movement.
The driver has an excellent view of the job at hand, not only thanks to the cab position itself, but also the extensive glass area and the position of the dash display (mounted on the right hand side). Upward visibility is also virtually free from obstruction, thanks to a clever overhead guard design.
Fast, economic handling is the prime benefit of the Hyster ‘first row stacker’ container handler. Due to the simplicity of the ‘straight lift’ mast movement and high lifting speeds, these container handling machines perform ‘container-shunting’ operations faster than most reachstacker type machines.
The fastest spreader (dis)engagement to/from containers is enhanced by the spreader’s floating twistlocks, free mechanical articulation and sideshift movement. Automatic twistlock locking, the lift and overlowering inhibitor and spreader rotation and reach are all important standard features that help boost productivity.
Automotive style driver layout and logical joystick type combi-control help the operator to sustain a high performance level.
Endurance is also provided through the truck’s cooling system that is suitable for operation in ambient temperatures up to 50°C. The hydraulically driven cooling fan only operates on-demand, consuming less energy, improving fuel economy and reducing average noise.
Building a Hyster Big Truck
Every Hyster Big Truck is built to last, with detail and care going into every stage of the build process.
