Promoting fuel savings
Ports and terminals can reduce container handling and reachstacker fuel consumption by up to 25% just by choosing the right equipment, says Hyster.
The company has been collecting and analysing data from its customers who have switched to using its latest super low emissions Stage IV/Tier 4final (T4f) compliant trucks.
Speaking at a press conference where the 100th Hyster ReachStacker had just come off the production line, Jan Willem van den Brand, product strategy manager, Big Trucks, spoke about how Hyster has worked hard to ensure its equipment provides significant fuel savings for customers.
Mr van den Brand said: “Our goal was to continue our profitable low emissions strategy reducing the total cost of operations and ownership while meeting the new standards for a cleaner environment.”
The latest Hyster Big Trucks feature Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technologies to meet the Stage IV/T4f legislation.
They also feature the ECO-eLo Fuel Efficiency Mode which can be used to reduce the maximum engine speed and further optimise fuel efficiency.
When it comes to the Hyster ReachStacker, the Cummins QSL9 (up to 370 hp, 276kW) provides power, which is also used on the Hyster 36-48t forklift trucks, and Hyster laden container handlers.
The engine's EGR technology reduces NOx formation during combustion, and the SCR removes the remaining NOx from the exhaust stream.
For particulate matter, high pressure fuel injection reduces formation at source and a diesel oxidation catalyst removes remaining PM from the exhaust stream. There is no diesel particulate filter, no additional operator intervention or ash cleaning service required.
