Hyster Introduces the New Reachstacker to Support Container Handling Applications

Hyster, one of the leading global brands of materials handling equipment has introduced its ground-breaking ReachStacker for handling laden containers up to 45 tonnes at the official launch event at Meydan Racecourse in Dubai, held on 4th April 2017.

The customer event started with an introduction about Hyster by Mr. James Newman (Area Business Director, Middle East and Africa, Hyster-Yale Group), together with Mr. Rainer Marian and Mr. Daniel Heap with topics, 'Why Hyster', 'Hyster Capabilities', 'Hyster Product Portfolio', 'Hyster Container Handling Solutions' and 'Hyster Dealer Network'.

Subsequently, Hyster presented a product demonstration of the new Hyster® RS45-27CH and RS45-31CH ReachStackers, boasting unique and innovative design features in addition to the existing Hyster® RS46 ReachStacker range, which has been developed specifically to meet the demands of ports and other tough container handling applications in growing markets.

The new trucks will be available exclusively to customers in the Middle East and Africa/Latin America/Asia Pacific with Stage IIIA/Tier3 emissions regulations, which are especially designed for excellent productivity in the first, second and third rows using proven Hyster® components for maximum dependability. For durability, the new ReachStacker has been tested to the extreme, both in the Hyster test facility and in tough customer applications, to be able to withstand the most demanding applications. Container handling operations, such as ports, rely on equipment to perform day after day, month after month.

Over 200 existing and new customers were invited to the launching event. Kanoo Machinery's participation was spearheaded by Mr. David Atkinson, Country Manager-UAE and organised by Mr. Girish Nair, Sales Manager. Apart from the Kanoo Machinery Team, among those present from The Kanoo Group Management were Mr. Fahad Kanoo (Executive Director-UAE), Mr. Ahmed Fawzi Kanoo (Deputy Managing Director of YBA Kanoo), Mr. Bob Curtis (CEO, UAE & Oman), and Mr. Matt Cooper-Bradfield (Head of Human Resources - UAE & Oman).

The event was also a platform to speak to industry experts from Hyster, plus a showcase of products from Houcon – Trailers, Bolzoni Auramo Attachments, and Shell Lubricants.

The new products will be supported by Kanoo Machinery's highly trained technicians to provide responsive local service, as one of Hyster's global network of strong partners across the Middle East and Africa.
