Container Handler Forklift for Sale

Container handlers and reach stackers for sale

If your business involves the movement and storage of heavy cargo, a container handler or reach stacker is the type of heavy duty materials handling equipment you need to get the job done.

Whether it’s shipping containers or steel, timber or mining equipment, container handlers and reach stackers offer material handling capacities of up to 50 tonnes, travel speeds of up to 25 km/h under load and the ability to stack up to a height of five standard containers.

A container handler is a large vehicle with a vertical mast or boom and a spreader which attaches to the four corners of the container. Instead of a vertical mast, a reach stacker has an extendable boom, which allows it to reach further and stack containers several rows deep.

Lencrow Forklifts stocks a good range of new container handlers and reach stackers, and our materials handling experts can help you identify the equipment that best suits your business requirements.

Container handlers vs reach stackers

Container handlers and reach stackers each have their own particular advantages, and the type you opt for would depend on the size and nature of your freight handling operation. Some key differences include;

  • Reach stackers can stack several rows deep, increasing potential storage density
  • Container handlers are generally faster and can lift heavier loads
  • Reach stackers have superior longitudinal stability
  • Container handlers can restack containers faster than reach stackers
  • Reach stackers have better forward visibility
  • Both types are available in lighter models designed to handle empty containers only.
