Green upgrade for Hyster ReachStacker
Hyster has upgraded its ‘green’ ReachStacker series to help ports and terminal experiencing increased container throughput further reduce costs and emissions.
The Hyster ReachStacker is known for its lift speeds, combined motions of lift and boom extension while driving and reliability, especially in 24/7 operations. Hyster has enhanced the series with a new Cummins QSL9 engine and other technologies to meet the Stage IV/Tier 4 final (T4f) emissions legislation.
“More than 25% fuel savings, which could be more than four litres per hour, can be achieved with the new Hyster ReachStacker when compared to our Stage IIIA 2010 trucks and many of our competitor models,” said Jan Willem van den Brand, product strategy manager, big trucks.
“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,” he added.
Hyster has used heavy exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) combined with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to achieve Stage IV/T4f compliance. The company says this has resulted in around 96% less soot particles and 94% less NOx compared to Stage IIIA/T3 equivalents before 2005.
EGR reduces NOx formation during combustions, followed by SCR which removes the remaining NOx from the exhaust system. This combination requires low diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) usage, with no risk of crystallisation. For the particulate matter (PM) reduction, Hyster says high pressure fuel injection reduces PM formation at sources and the DOC removes the rest from the exhaust stream. There is no diesel particulate filter, no additional operator intervention or ash cleaning service required.
In addition to the new Cummins engine technologies, the new ReachStacker has optimised performance features such as cooling on demand, ECO-eLo mode, RPM management and alternate engine idle speed, which it says help to further reduce the total fuel consumption. Load sensing hydraulics also allow a high lift speed at low RPM.
The frame and boom design supports first, second and third stacking and, depending on the machine, up to 41 tonnes in the second row and six-high in the first row. Models are available with container handling or intermodal handling spreaders, or a number of different attachments for other industries such as metal or wind power.
