US company Fast Lane Transportation has placed an order for two 6‐high Hoist ECH (empty container handler) units for its Wilmington and Oakland, California locations with delivery scheduled by year end, and Shippers Stevedoring Company has ordered three 8‐high ECH units to operate in the Houston area with delivery scheduled in the first quarter of 2009.

Hoist Liftruck receives first orders on new ECH

The modular design on the Hoist ECH allows for shipping in containers and the reduced setup time can save up to 25% on shipping and setup costs. The design also provides efficient serviceability, with bolt‐on assemblies for easy part replacement.

Unlike traditional mast designs, the Hoist ECH 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; stabilising 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.

“The Hoist ECH has gained worldwide interest, particularly in Asia and South America, with many scheduling visits to the United States to view the new units. Coupled with the modular design, standardised premium components, technology and aftermarket parts support, the anticipation of our ECH line has been tremendous,” said Marty Flaska, Hoist Liftruck’s president.
