We’re on a mission to elevate the experience of owning and operating terminal tractors. When we set out to renovate the terminal tractor, we focused on maximizing both efficiency and the overall operator experience. In order to achieve these goals, our heavy-duty vehicle design team went to work. We have added serious value without raising costs.
The Hoist TE-Series, along with the three other models in Hoist Liftruck’s container handling series, offers customers a “one-stop shop” solution in port, intermodal and distribution applications.
Terminal tractors are used round the clock, so durability and up-time are critical. The Hoist TE-Series is designed from the ground up to get the job done over and over again. Built to withstand constant contact with heavy trailers across rough yards, the Hoist TE-Series features a high strength steel frame and military grade AxleTech drive axles.
The Hoist TE-Series’ fifth wheel reduces vehicle stress by providing smoother hook-ups with trailers and distributing the load more evenly throughout the chassis.
In addition to increased operator comfort, the Hendrickson Air Ride suspension provides significant rollover protection, an industry first. The chassis is mounted on “airbags”, providing constant ride height control, even while making sudden, sharp turns when braking.
Manual diagnostics of competitors’ terminal tractors are time-consuming and therefore, costly due to downtime. Rather than checking each individual fuse, relay and connection to diagnose an electrical problem for example, the Hoist TE-Series comes standard with our Smart Screen Technology onboard diagnostics which allows operators and technicians to immediately identify which component is faulty. The Smart Screen Technology also includes additional functionality such as error history logs, onboard operator and service manuals, passcode protection, icon library as well as full instrumentation and warnings.
All vital components, such as air filter, oil filter and dipsticks are placed in easily accessible areas around the terminal tractor. Operators can quickly get to problem areas after reviewing the issues in the Smart Screen Technology onboard interface and have the terminal tractor running again.
