Fleet, United Kingdom
Hyster's empty container handlers have several new developments in addition to the XTL axle that it says reduces tyre wear and costs.
The new "lay-back" mast options on the H16.00-22.00XM-12EC enables the truck to pass easily under overhead obstacles, which are commonly found in port and terminal environments, like bridges or pipelines.
Other options include four versions of "hooks and side-clamps", which means there is now a total of nine empty container engagement systems on Hyster's H16.00-22.00XM-12EC machines.
