Hyster Company announces that it has won a 2015 GOOD DESIGN™ award for its Tier 4 Final RS45-46 ReachStacker. Presented by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, GOOD DESIGN honors yearly achievements of extraordinary design excellence. The Tier 4 Final ReachStacker was selected based on its efficient engine technology and productivity enhancing design.
“At Hyster, we continually examine our products, looking for innovative ways to increase efficiency, reduce emissions, improve fuel economy and lower the total cost of ownership – all while maintaining the level of power and performance needed to move even the heaviest loads,” said Herman Klaus, Director of Big Truck Application Solutions for Hyster. “Receiving a GOOD DESIGN award for the Tier 4 Final ReachStacker is a result of this dedication, confirming our philosophy of design excellence.”
Engineered to be the most maneuverable in the industry, with class-leading lifting
To maintain optimum cooling and lower fuel consumption, the ReachStacker comes with an on-demand cooling system with a hydraulically powered fan that operates only when cooling is required. This is more efficient than direct drive fans which continually draw power during operation.
The series also includes a load sensing on-demand hydraulic system that delivers flow only when necessary. The on-demand hydraulic system’s variable displacement pumps are capable of more oil displacement, even at low pump speeds. This allows the engine to run at lower speeds and extends the life of hydraulic oil and components, while consuming up to 10% less fuel than a typical fixed displacement hydraulic system, and produces less heat and noise. The ReachStacker also includes automatic throttle-up, an innovative feature that automatically increases engine throttle to match desired hydraulic speed, which keeps the engine operating in its most efficient power band, while making operation easier for the driver.
