All models of the Hyster H16-22XM-12EC series share some excellent features, such as lifting speeds up to 0.51 m/sec, a rear mounted cab for a comfortable view angle during high stacking and a tropical cooling package for working in ambient temperatures of up to 50°C. These machines are exceptionally stable with a weight of 32 to 36 tons, a wheelbase of 4.0 or 4.5 m, and a width of 4.12 m.
The H16-22XM-12EC series is equipped with a Cummins 6.7 liter Diesel engine conforming to strict EC Tier 3 emission regulations. It has a 3-speed auto-shift transmission with protective lockout on forward-reverse shifting. The strong and wide AxleTech drive axle has oil-immersed (wet) disc brakes.
The series is equipped with side-lift 20’-45’ container spreaders, standard ‘reefer correction’ (+/- 600 mm sideshift movement) and twistlock indicator lights on the spreader and in the cab roof (not on ‘Suspended Hooks’ version). For safety, a mast over-lowering interrupt prevents the mast from being lowered further when the spreader is landed on a container. Lift is also interrupted if the twistlocks are not in a fully closed or open position.
The telescopic spreader is available in four different configurations:
For single containers
– Vertical twistlocks
– Suspended hooks
For double (and single) containers
– Hooks and side-clamps
– Double horizontal twistlocks
Powered Pile Slope function is optional. This provides additional hydraulic powered sideways articulation of the spreader, with +/- 6 degrees, on top of the normal mechanical articulation.
