In order for ports and terminals to operate smoothly, containers need to be transported quickly and safely. The LCH Series of loaded container handlers is engineered for fast lifting cycles, reliable operation and efficient serviceability.
The LCH Series is designed to quickly and safely stack/unstack loaded ISO containers with models that can handle up to 6-high stacking of 9’6” loaded containers with single-stacking attachment.
The modular design allows for reduced freight cost, easy assembly, and efficient parts replacement, ideal for transportation between terminals. The elevated cab position and angled glass roof provide the operator with superior visibility at all load elevations.
While focusing on robustness and comfort, we also understand that time is money. That’s why each LCH Series is engineered to provide optimal operating and fuel efficiency. The high-performance Cummins diesel engine are powerful, yet offer reduced fuel consumption and emissions. Features such as variable pumps adjust oil flow accordingly to provide quicker lifting cycles while also reducing fuel consumption.
As with all Hoist Material Handling equipment, the LCH Series is forged in the USA. More than 75% of each truck is manufactured at our Midwest factory with the remaining components sourced from reputable companies, such as Dana, Cummins and Parker.
