New Hoist ECH units ship to Gulf Coast region

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

BEDFORD PARK, IL — With the first ECH Series units shipped to California earlier this year, Hoist Liftruck is shipping three more units to Gulf Coast region. The Hoist ECH‐8 units, sold through Hoist dealer Toyota Lift of Houston, were purchased by Shipper Stevedoring Company.

Hoist Liftruck and Hoist dealer Southeast Industrial Equipment have completed a deal for an ECH‐4, which was purchased by a container storage/repair yard company in Georgia. Two more ECH‐8 units have been sold in Taiwan with several other deals in Asia pending approval.

The advanced modular design on the Hoist ECH Series allows for containerized shipping and reduced setup time that can save a customer as much as 25% on shipping and setup costs. The modular design also provides efficient serviceability, with bolt‐on assemblies for easy part replacement.

Opposite of traditional mast designs, the unique ECH Series mast features a rigid inner mast and telescoping outer, which reduces torsional stresses and increases durability. The wide‐view mast with nested cylinders, coupled with a high‐position cab and angled overhead glass, provides the operator with superior visibility.

Other standard features include 6.7L Tier III Cummins diesel engine; Dana 32,000 automatic transmission; load sense hydraulic system; AxleTech planetary drive axle; stabilizing system preventing lateral movement; side‐post attachment with two (2) ISO rear twistlocks that extend/retract to handle containers up to 53 feet; interlock safety system to insure proper locking and twistlock engagement indicator lights; and RemoteTech® vehicle management system.
