When Tactical Cargo Solutions had a specific challenge with over height container cargo, they turned to Hyster for a flexible solution. Tactical Cargo Solutions typically use a crane instead of forklift trucks to handle overheight loads. Hystandard Handling Equipment are authorised Hyster dealers.
Hyster’s solution was a Hyster H50.00XM – 16CH forklift fitted with a fully hydraulic over height spreader frame. The machine has the ability to drop down two purpose built arms at each end of the attachment. This extends the twist locks a further 1600mm, thus allowing them to get past the over height cargo and secure the container safely for lifting and stacking. The legs hydraulically deploy and retract at the touch of a button on the operator’s joystick control.
