These heavy duty and large forklifts are designed for efficient handling of loaded and empty containers. Moreover this container handling equipment is a good choice for moving containers to and from commercial lorries and trucks. You can also find them at terminals unloading and loading ships and trains. They are designed for maximum strength and stability. Huge attachments such as side spreaders (single stacking) or hooks (double stacking) are used to face the time pressure on today's container terminals. Driver performance is a key factor to increase terminal profits and productivity. The difference between a container handler and a reach stacker is simple. Reach Stackers can stack up to 3 rows behind each other, while container handlers are designed to stack full or empty containers in 1 single row. The weight of a container handler can reach up to 70 tons.
Empty container handlers are able to carry up to 10 tons. Full container handlers usually have a capacity of 40 tons. Most of the models run on diesel engines.
Well known brands for this type of forklifts are Hyster, Linde, Kalmar and Konecranes. In Forklift you will find actual offers for used container handlers according to your specific needs.
