Hyster’s Yardmaster II reach stackers have the capacity to lift 8.5-ft (2.6-m) or 9.5-ft (2.9-m) containers five-high in the first row.

Designed for material-handling applications, Hyster’s Yardmaster II reach stacker series delivers what the company describes as the tightest turning radius in the container-handling industry.

Powered by a 10.8-L Cummins QSM 11 diesel engine that delivers 300 hp (224 kW), Yardmaster II reach stackers provide a lift speed of 94 ft/min (27 m/min) with no load, and support load capacities up to 101,000 lb (45,813 kg).

Yardmaster II stackers feature a high-strength boom that facilitates lifting 8.5-ft (2.6-m) or 9.5-ft (2.9-m) containers five-high in the first row, with the stabilizer applied. Yardmaster II stackers also feature Hyster’s ComforCab II, which has been designed to optimize driver comfort and visibility for maximum productivity.
