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 including ISO, WTP and domestic 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 H180-230XD container handler provides particularly powerful advantages as organizations scale to handle growing demand while maintaining targets for efficiency and cost.


Hyster H180-230XD-EC/D container handling trucks deliver high productivity with 4-mode average speeds of 107 ft/min (0.54 m/s), competitive in the industry at rated laden container handling capacities.

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
Optimized powertrain

The Tier 4 Final Cummins QSB 6-cylinder diesel engine delivers 231 peak HP and 770 lb-ft of maximum torque, featuring cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) technology with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and an integrated diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) delivery system.

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

On-demand hydraulics keep oil temperature lower to protect hydraulic components.

Ergonomic cab

The ergonomically designed high visibility cab puts greater productivity within easy reach. Equipped with an armored glass top window, curved front and rear windows and steel doors with tempered glass, the 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-color 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.
