When stacking empty containers only three or four high, the lighter and more compact Hyster® H6XD-EC3 and H7XM-EC4 empty container handlers can help reduce costs even further.

Based on the H13-16XD forklift, the series has proven reliability and strength for the most intense applications where single stacks only reach three or four containers high.

Robust, heavy-duty design

The robust frame and wide drive axle provide rock solid stability and long-term durability when handling empty containers at full height. The truck is also equipped with a heavy-duty Vista mast and side lift spreader with movable vertical twistlocks. With a spreader to suit every application, Hyster Empty Container Handlers are engineered to offer outstanding solutions with highly advanced mast lift spreaders.

Spreader options include;

  • Model 586TB is a telescopic side lift spreader with vertical twistlocks for handling of one single empty ISO and Binnencontainer with a width up 8’6”.
  • Model 588TB is a telescopic side lift spreader with vertical twistlocks for the handling of single empty ISO containers.
Ergonomic cab

The ergonomically design high visibility cab puts greater productivity within easy reach. Equipped with an armoured glass top window, curved front and rear windows and steel doors with tempered glass, the new operator cab provides excellent all-around visibility.

Inside the cab there is more space with the largest entry area in the industry, more control with a full-colour screen displaying performance data at the operator’s fingertips and more comfort with an exclusive lateral sliding seat, adjustable steering column and foot pedal, plus ergonomic controls.


Performance optimisation developments include on-demand cooling, load sensing hydraulics, RPM management and alternate engine idle speed to help reduce the total fuel consumption in most applications.

Simplified service

Unobstructed access to the engine compartment and conveniently located checkpoints enables rapid and efficient maintenance.

All major components are readily accessible for servicing, resulting in shorter downtimes and increased productivity.

500-hour service intervals and parts common to the H13-16XD makes life easier for service engineers.
