• Lowering operating costs

    Customers active in the recycling industry transport wood chips in containers using trains and lorries. At the rail terminals, containers full of wood chips need to be emptied in an efficient way for further transportation.

    To empty the wood chip containers into lorries, they need to be pivoted at full height, allowing the correct flow of the bulk goods from one container into another. Together with suppliers, Hyster developed an attachment fitted on an RS 45-31 CH ReachStacker which enables the customer’s 20” containers to be lifted and pivoted up to 45 degrees.When pivoting the container is positioned off centre to enhance stability.This results in an easy, efficient and cost effective trans-shipment of the wood chips.
