Port firm selects Hyster

Port and logistics company Zuidnatie has placed an order for for seven high capacity Hyster forklift trucks for its work at the port of Antwerp, following its satisfaction with two Tier 4i/Stage IIIB compliant Hyster empty container handlers introduced last year.

The new fleet includes two H18XM-12 forklift trucks with 18,000kg lift capacities, also powered by the Cummins 6.7 engine.  Zuidnatie also ordered H25XM-12 forklift trucks with 25,000kg capacity and an H32XM-12 forklift with 32,000kg lift capacity. 

All the trucks feature  Hyster’s Vista Operator Compartment, and deliver rapid boost at low engine rpm and then maintain high boost at higher rpm, independent of engine speed, due to their variable geometry turbochargers.

Hyster Big Trucks over 16 tonne lift capacity include Tier 4i / Stage IIIB engines Exhaust Gas Recirculation technology, so the operators can fill the fuel tank as normal. The customer can also select either an HiP “high performance” or ECO-eLo “fuel efficiency” mode.
