Hyster delivers container handlers to port

March 24, 2015

Hyster Company has delivered its first container handlers with Tier 4 Final engines to a terminal at California’s Port of Los Angeles. The three Hyster H1050HD-CH trucks are suited for ports and terminals, providing superior lifting capacity and performance.

The H1050-1150HD-CH series features a Tier 4 Final Cummins engine rated at 363 horsepower that is right-sized to lower fuel consumption up to 20%, but strong enough to deliver hoist speeds of 59 feet/minute (fpm) and lowering speeds of 98 fpm (no load).

This series provides an integrated drivetrain with an emission reduction package that includes cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system for nitrogen oxide reduction. An integrated powertrain design includes engine protection from excessive temperatures and pressures and a torque derate strategy.

Engineered for heavy-duty container handling applications, the H1050-1150HD-CH series comes standard with an integral mounted spreader capable of handling both 20- and 40-foot ISO and domestic containers. The spreader allows either mechanical or powered pile sloping while providing power slewing, gantry spreader sideshift, and automatic twistlock functions using four pendular twistlocks that engage containers for hassle-free handling. Intuitive controls deliver immediate response for precise operation of the mast and spreader attachment.
