Our long-term, close collaboration with customers provides us with deep and unique knowledge of container handling and the different needs found in the world’s ports and rail terminals. That’s why we can offer the broadest range of Reach Stackers – adapted to your needs. No matter which model you choose from our new Reach Stacker series, it features an array of innovative solutions such as the box-type chassis, load-sensing hydraulics (power-on-demand), electronic controlled low-emission engines, electronic overload protection, and a newly designed cabin with improved ergonomics. Combined with fuel efficient engines that deliver high torque at low revs, you can be sure that the trucks will do the heavy work for many years to come.
Wide range of heavy lifting products
We offer a complete line of powerful Reach Stackers for handling empty and laden containers, for trailers on railroads with multiple tracks, and for loading barges at waterways. We also have Reach Stackers for industrial handling of steel slabs, steel coils, pipes, heavy machinery, concrete, stone, and similar goods.
Fully equipped Reach Stackers for container terminals
With the intensive pace in ports, SMV Reach Stackers are best suited for loading, unloading, and stacking empty and laden containers. With our modular system we can always offer the ideal truck model for your needs that meets the requirements in your terminal. Our trucks are usually delivered more fully equipped than trucks from other manufacturers.
Large Reach Stackers for rail terminals
Railway handling usually requires larger trucks with higher lifting capacity and a longer reach. To load and unload on more than one track you need a flexible truck with more functions and larger lifting capacity. These trucks usually have "combi-attachments", which lift both containers (top lift) and trailers bottom lift). Other common options are hydraulically movable cabin or adjustable height cabin, remote control, and support jacks for increased capacity. This setting also requires trucks with a longer wheelbase.
Heavyweights to load and unload barges
The waterways of the world are becoming increasingly popular for transporting containers. This trend places new demands on flexible loading and unloading of ships and barges that travel the rivers and traverse the seas. Since Reach Stackers also load goods other than containers, they need high capacity, a large reach, and flexibility. Barges are loaded below the level of the dock, which places new demands. Usually a truck adapted for negative lifting is used, but a spacer frame can be used that is also suitable for easier handling. Konecranes Lifttrucks produces the biggest Reach Stackers in the world.
Handling steel, concrete and other heavy goods
Our Reach Stackers are delivered equipped with a tool carrier that makes it possible to use different types of equipment. You can easily adapt the truck to handle different types of industrial goods and/or containers. A Reach Stacker can rotate, turn, sideshift, and lift above different levels – movements which are impossible with a fork lift truck. This capability is one of the major advantages of a Reach Stacker.
Maximum strength in perfect balance
Our trucks are built on unique, heavy-duty box chassis in combination with well selected components and engines that deliver high torque at low revs. To take maximum advantage of the power the trucks have well-tested load-sensing hydraulics that provide increased efficiency and better performance.
Power-on-demand reduces wear, fuel consumption, and environmental impact
The Reach Stackers are equipped with load-sensing hydraulics to adapt the lifting power to the weight of the goods and the truck only provides maximum power on demand, when it’s really needed. In other words, the truck consumes less power and fuel while reducing emissions and noise. This technology offers many advantages: more easier lifts, smoother drive, and decreased wear on the engine, gearbox, and hydraulics.
Customisation increases productivity
We know that every customer has special requirements for the truck’s functionality and equipment. Our modular trucks are built based on your needs and requirements, which means the trucks can be tailored to your operation. You will appreciate the truck’s high performance, excellent handling, and outstanding service.
We focus on the driver
Drivers must have a good workplace in order to work safely and effectively for long shifts. To meet this need, the cabins of our trucks are probably the best on the market, with unbeatable comfort, visibility, and ergonomics. The cabin features low noise levels and minimum vibration. The driver is not disturbed by vibrations from the engine or chassis. Large glass screens provide optimum visibility and the powerful ventilation system creates a pleasant climate. All instruments and adjustable controls are located at a comfortable distance from the driver. All Reach Stackers are equipped with joysticks and electronic overload protection, which makes the driver more efficient and the work safer. Wouldn’t you like to take a test drive?
