World-renowned spreader design

Port environments are harsh; operators need a container handler that they can depend on 24/7. The proven Hyster® spreader is fast and efficient and allows operators to remain productive in challenging port conditions.

Features such as a +/-800mm side shift, optional powered pile slope and powered dampening all combine to make picking up containers easier.

Operator-friendly cabin

Spacious cabin provides excellent comfort and all-round visibility for operators working in the toughest applications and extreme weather conditions.

Ergonomically designed, the high visibility cab puts greater productivity within easy reach. Inside the cab, clear and well positioned display keep the operator in touch with precision load control and critical engine performance at all times.

The cab is designed to minimise noise and vibration levels for the operator and the superior seating and generous space ensures maximum comfort for the operator and helps to reduce fatigue.

Low cost of ownership

On-demand hydraulics and cooling technologies help to lower the overall cost of ownership by saving fuel, increasing component life and reducing service requirements.

Cycle times are more efficient with fast acceleration required for productivity in a container yard. The 2-speed hoist system also significantly boosts unladen lift speeds.

Whilst it’s right-sized engine and transmission inching provides great control during container stacking.


Simple servicing

All major components are readily accessible for servicing, resulting in shorter downtimes and increased productivity. 500-hour service intervals and parts common to the RS45 makes life easier for service engineers.
