Equipment Type
Container Handlers

Innovative Hyster Reach Stackers are available in a wide range of configurations and options providing unprecedented flexibility to perform tasks in many different applications including 2nd rail handling, container dumping, windmill blade and tower handling, steel handling and barge handling. A Hyster ReachStacker can be equipped with a toolchanger attachment giving the operator the ability to more easily and quickly switch between different attachments (ie: slab tongs & magnets, c-hooks, pipe clamps) and enable a leaner, more productive fleet for steel operations.

By using a reach stacker, mills can use a single piece of equipment for a variety of tasks handling a variety of steel shapes and sizes - tasks traditionally divided up between several types of equipment like gantry systems, terminal tractors and lift trucks.

  • Lightweight, aluminum floor plates and sliding cab provide quick access to major components for service technicians.
  • The hydraulic oil tank features a sight glass for the oil level, as well as magnetic drain plugs.
  • CANbus on-board diagnostics with fuses centrally located in the side console make for easy servicing and troubleshooting.
  • Major engine and drivetrain components are engineered to operate on 500-hour service intervals.

The durable 2-stage boom design is constructed from T-1 steel, with two plane welding for additional strength. The one-piece frame features reinforced welding of the main sections with heavy duty rear supports.

The heavy-duty steer axle is engineered for long life and outstanding steering capability.

The unique and patented Hyster stabilizer utilizes dynamic pressure, meaning approximately 24% of the front loading will remain on the front axle, giving extra side stability and lower ground loading. The heavy duty, innovative stabilizer has rapid deployment, increases stability and reduces tire wear on the rear axle.


The operator cab provides excellent comfort for operators working in the toughest applications and extreme weather conditions. Equipped with an armored glass top window, curved front and rear windows and steel doors with tempered glass, the operator cab provides excellent all-around visibility.

Ergonomically designed, the high visibility cab puts greater productivity within easy reach. Inside the cab, clear and well positioned displays keep the operator in touch with precision load control and critical engine performance at all times.

The cab is designed to minimize noise and vibration levels for the operator and the ergonomically designed superior seating and generous space provides maximum comfort for the operator and helps to reduce fatigue.

A harmonized system design which includes automatic throttle-up, on-demand hydraulics, on-demand cooling and hibernate idle help to reduce fuel consumption on Hyster trucks under varying load conditions. These Hyster solutions can provide significant savings in fuel consumption and maintenance costs over the life of the truck.

Innovative ECO modes: Hi-P and e-Lo (Tier 4 Only)

  • Hi-P provides maximum performance and good fuel economy
  • e-Lo provides minimum fuel consumption without losing productivity
