GMH will supply new Hyster container handling forklifts to KiwiRail.
New Zealand-based Gough Materials Handling has won a contract to supply rail network operator KiwiRail with four new Hyster forklifts and renew its nationwide fleet.

The 48-tonne container handling forklifts are capable of lifting containers of up to 40 tonnes and stacking up to four containers high for both 20 foot and 49 foot.

According to Gough’s general manager Darren Allen, the partnership is based on the back-up and 24-hour support provided by the company along with the quality of the product.

"The Hyster brand has clearly established itself as a market leader, particularly in the container handling market.

"They are highly evolved and extremely user-friendly. This brings significant operational and safety benefits – a priority for KiwiRail and the nation’s sea-ports where Hyster is prevalent."

The new forklifts are equipped with state-of-the-art safety features with fully automatic speed control and load control systems. Features include an air suspension seat, full airconditioning and fingertip joystick control.
