Hyster has launched what it calls a quick and easy solution to the recently introduced SOLAS Legislation on container weighing.

Its own weighing system can be fitted to Hyster ReachStackers to obtain a Verified Gross Mass (VGM) and can be used anywhere where the “Legal for Trade” regulations do not apply.

Hyster said its new static system is quick and easy to use, cost effective and has limited impact on container throughput.

This is because by the touch of a button, the operator can set into action a pre-programmed lift cycle drivers which involves the boom being fully retracted and the container being picked up and raised up to a 25 to 30-degree angle. The weight is verified within 15 seconds.

Using a screen display in the cab, the ReachStacker operator can quickly input container identification and have a time stamped VGM attached to it. 

VGM data can be saved to a USB stick or printed using an in-cab printer and 3G or WiFi options are available on some models to deliver data to the Terminal Operating System. For maximum flexibility, the system display can show Gross, Tare and Net weights.

Whether installed to existing Hyster ReachStackers or factory-fitted to new trucks, both systems are based on hydraulic load sensing technology, offering low maintenance requirements and comply with the OIML R51 class Y(b) guidelines.
