Single and double handling spreaders

A comprehensive selection of single and double handling spreaders are available, featuring vertical twistlocks or hook & side clamps, to suit your specific application. These spreaders allow
operations to handle most common types of containers.


Hyster empty container handling solutions can help port operations reap time and cost savings by handling two empty containers simultaneously. The double-handling capability of the H9-11XD container handler provides particularly powerful advantages as organisations scale to handle growing demand while maintaining targets for efficiency and cost.

Heavy duty productivity

Hyster H8-11XD-EC/D empty container handling trucks deliver high productivity with 4-mode average lifting speeds of 0.54 m/s, competitive in the industry.

For optimal performance and durability, the variable lap mast features:

  • significantly lower load roller forces
  • less mast deflection
  • higher torsional rigidity
  • heavy duty 2 chain system with large diameter sheaves

This design enhances structural strength, contributing to lower costs and reducing downtime.


Hyster trucks have been designed with the service technician in mind. Easy access to the engine, hydraulics and other major components are enabled with a large hinged hood and lift off front covers. The tip back cabin provides ample service access to components located under the cabin.

  • Broad, slip resistant running boards
  • Optional utility toolbox and storage compartment
  • The hydraulic oil tank features a sight glass and magnetic drain plugs for ease of maintenance
  • Clean hydraulic hose and electrical harness routing and clamping
Optimised power train

With the H8XD-EC6 - H11XDECD9 range you will move more empty containers in less time. You will also have the benefit of longer service life of components, and less downtime due to unplanned repair requirements.

Innovative selectable ECO performance modes, plus the 5-speed transmission and variable displacement pumps, offer excellent fuel economy.

On-demand hydraulics, on-demand cooling and selectable performance modes contribute to fuel savings, extended component life and reduced noise levels.

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.
