Taylor Machine Works, Inc. launched the XHRS-1000, a new model in its material handling equipment portfolio purpose-built to handle containers in the unique lift situations that barge applications present.

Hal Nowell, Director of Sales of Taylor Machine Works, said the XHRS is specifically designed for inland rivers and waterway customers.

This purpose-built reachstacker is suited to tackle inland waterway barge applications as well as other heavy-duty negative lift applications. The XHR-1000 has a 360-inch wheelbase and features hydraulic stabilizer jacks. It has negative lift capability of 71 inches below grade to the tip of twist-locks. With stabilizers down in Barge Mode, it is designed to stack 99,000-pound containers four-high in the first row, 84,700 pounds four-high in the second row and 72,600 pounds four-high in the third row.

This new model, like all Taylor products, is backed by Sudden Service, Inc. and its trained personnel along with authorized Taylor dealers across the U.S. and abroad.
