The Hyster RS46 ReachStacker can now be specified with a new hinged elevating operator cabin option, to optimise visibility and help meet the challenges of demanding port and terminal applications.

With the new ‘hinged’ elevating cabin, the Hyster RS46 offers direct visibility of second rail containers even when there is a high cube container on a railcar in the first rail position, said the company. This helps to reduce damage and provides greater efficiency.

The moveable cab is raised and lowered smoothly on a hinged arm and the speed can be adjusted. The container handling truck will continue to operate when the cabin is raised but the speed is automatically reduced to 10Km/h, and both doors must be closed.

Ergonomic environment

With fewer components, as well as reduced sideways movement, shock and vibration when driving, the cab offers an optimal ergonomic driver environment, Hyster emphasised. An optional tilt of up to 10 degrees can also be added to help make handling high stacks even more comfortable.

These design features of the Hyster truck are also expected to reduce wear and tear, and maintenance, to help port and terminal operations to control costs and maximise uptime.

Additionally, compared to a mast, when the cab is lowered, it does not increase the truck height. This offers benefits for road transport while also helping to prevent the rearwards view from being affected.
