Forklift trucks from Hystandard Handling Equipment come in all shapes and sizes.
Hyster has a range of over 138 different models and is continuously developing its forklift truck range. From hand pallet trucks to giant container handling forklift trucks and everything in between, Hyster has a solution.
When Tactical Cargo Solutions had a specific challenge with over height container cargo, Managing Director, Chris Brooks turned to Hyster’s extensive range of forklift trucks for a solution.
General purpose cargo can be handled by standard forklift trucks, but it takes a special machine to handle over height cargo containers. Typically Chris would use a crane instead of forklift trucks to handle these loads.
The Hyster H50.00XM – 16 CH forklift fitted with a fully hydraulic over height spreader frame has the ability to drop down two purpose built arms at each end of the attachment extending the twist locks a further 1600mm. This allows them to get past the over height cargo and secure the container safely for lifting and stacking.
When not in use the legs hydraulically retract and are folded such that the unit can be used as a standard container stacker.
The resolution of this over height cargo issue is typical of how Hyster can supply forklift trucks with innovative features and benefits for all applications.
