BLTWORLD – Taylor XRS-9972 reach stackers for container handling

BLTWORLD’s extensive range of container handling equipment encompasses Taylor loaded and empty container handlers, as well as reach stackers – designed for versatile operation, enhanced performance and improved safety in busy container handling environments, particularly port operations.

“The Taylor XRS-9972 reach stacker, with a high-strength telescopic boom, is designed to handle loaded containers stacked up to five high in the first row, four high in the second row and three high in the third row,” says Ken Mouritzen, managing director, BLTWORLD. “This container handler, which is built on a 6 550 mm wheelbase, is able to stack 2,9 m containers (up to 45 T) five high. The XRS-9972 is built to handle at least a million cycles, where the market standard is about 400 000 cycles, which means greater profitability for the user. High-yield T-1 steel is used throughout the manufacture of each truck, enhanced by horizontal/full penetration welding techniques and heavy-duty components working together to deliver high productivity and ensure extended service life.

“This robust truck features a 388-HP Tier 4 certified turbocharged diesel engine, a top-pick four-point spreader, hydraulic cab positioning for precise control and end-user diagnostics that allow users to customise operating parameters, without the need for a service call. The TICS (Taylor Integrated Control System) provides a safe and reliable service, utilising CANbus technology for accurate control and diagnostics. For operator convenience, data is clearly displayed on a dash-mounted full-color display screen.”

This spreader attachment includes hydraulic side shift and slew, as well mechanical pile slope adjustments. Hydraulic motors enable 95° counter-clock-wise and 185° clock-wise rotation. This design feature separates control of the spreader cylinders, giving the operator greater maneuverability, which results in quicker lift cycles.

The all-welded steel cab can be moved electrically at the touch of a button – forwards or backwards – for easy access to engine, transmission, radiator and pumps, allowing for quicker maintenance checks for reduced downtime.

The open design of this series enables easy access to hydraulic cylinders, valves, hoses, and electrical components, allowing quicker preventative maintenance and service diagnostics. No components are hidden within the attachment structure.

Over-sized windows and a T-shaped dashboard provide excellent visibility for the operator. A low-effort multi-function joystick, with integrated directional shift control, is mounted on a large adjustable armrest, to provide easy control of lift/lower, boom-in/boom-out, attachment rotation and twistlock operation functions. These ergonomic advantages provide a more comfortable, stress-free environment, allowing the operator to concentrate on the task at hand.
