Hyster innovation

Hyster has launched its latest high-stacking empty container handlers, the H16.00-22.00XM-12 EC series. The series consists of four models. The H16.00-22.00XM-12 EC features the Hyster “Vista” cab, which offers a range of standard features, designed to achieve maximum productivity in each shift.

The focus is on driver comfort, ergonomics and excellent visibility: for example, an air-suspension seat and air-conditioning are featured as standard.

The dash display is positioned to the driver’s right-hand side, to avoid unnecessary distraction from the operation in hand, and maximise forward visibility. In addition, a newly designed joystick offers the driver intuitive control of lift, tilt and spreader functions and the cab has a comfortably low noise level: 72 dB(A) . The cab also features a powered tilt facility.

The H16.00-22.00XM-12 EC series offers a choice of four “container engagement” systems for handling single containers and double containers, to meet the customers’ needs.

Suspended hooks, hooks and side-clamps and single or double vertical twistlocks are available.
