Terex Port Solutions (TPS) presented the Terex Liftace 5-36 reach stacker, the next machine in its line of new-generation lift trucks, at the bauma trade fair (April 11-17 in Munich). Besides Liftace reach stackers, this new generation also includes Terex Stackace empty container handlers. The technologically mature, agile and maneuverable cargo-handling machines of a compact design offer users a high degree of cost-effectiveness, ease of maintenance and ergonomics.
Precise and fast container stacking
The Liftace 5-36 reach stacker offers low fuel consumption and low wear, easy access to all maintenance points and a cab with a particularly user-friendly design. In addition to the 45 t when serving in the first container row, typical for Liftace reach stackers, the maximum load capacity is 36 t in the second row and 18 t in the third. With a wheelbase of 6,200 mm, the Liftace 5-36 reach stacker can stack up to five-high-cube containers (9 ft. 6 in.) in the first row and four-high-cube containers or five standard containers in the second row. For the engines, TPS relies on state-of-the-art technology from Volvo and Cummins that meets the requirements of the EPA Tier 4 Final emissions standard (EU Stage IV).
Developed on the basis of global demand
Since the launch, the new Terex lift trucks have established themselves successfully on the market. Many customers are using the machines in both Europe and North America. Mike Hegewald, Senior Director Global Engineering Terex Port Solutions, says, “Like all vehicles of the new generation, the Terex Liftace 5-36 reach stacker has been developed by an international team based on global customer requirements. The mix of competitive operating costs, ease of maintenance and convenience at the human-machine interface makes the machines efficient overall packages that provide competitive advantages for our customers. We will consistently continue on this course and successively expand the model range of the Liftace reach stacker.”
