Container handlers delivered to LA

by MM&D Online Staff

GREENVILLE, North Carolina—Hyster Company has delivered its first container handlers with Tier 4 Final engines to a terminal at the port of Los Angeles.

The Hyster H1050-1150HD-CH series uses a Tier 4 Final Cummins engine rated at 363 horsepower. It lowers fuel consumption by up to 20 percent, but delivers hoist speeds of 59 feet/minute and lowering speeds of 98 feet/minute (no load).

The H1050-1150HD-CH series with Tier 4 Final engine 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. This 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-foot 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.

Additionally, intuitive controls deliver immediate response for precise operation of the mast and spreader attachment.
