New Zealand forklift dealer Gough Materials Handling recently supplied three container handlers and a five tonne forklift to Port Taranaki. The Hyster equipment includes two reach stackers, an empty container handler and a counterbalance forklift. The reach stackers have the ability to stack laden containers five-high in the first and second row and three rows deep. The container weights can be up to 45 tonnes in the first row and 31 tonnes in the second row with 16 tonnes in the third row. The evaluation process for the new equipment was very detailed, involving assessment of a variety of manufacturers with a focus on quality, track-record, performance and ongoing service and support.
