Equipment manufacturer Terex Cranes has delivered two of its TFC 46MS HC reach stackers to Brazilian port handling operator MultiRio Operaçoes Portuarias.
The units were manufactured at Terex Cranes’ Montceau-les-Mines facility, in France, and delivered by Terex’s distributor Equiport.
The cranes were specially adapted to meet the needs of a specialised cargo handling contract awarded to MultiRio for operation in Terminal II in the Port of Rio de Janeiro.
Built to operate in both container handling and hook block applications, the Terex TFC 46MS HC combines the benefits of multi-attachment versatility and the accuracy to access and handle bulk and containerised cargo smoothly and efficiently.
It provides end-users with longer reach and higher lifting capabilities than other reach stackers currently available when equipped with a top-pick spreader.
The units have a maximum lifting capacity of 15 t at an 11 m radius, and can stack up to seven full ISO dry containers on the first row and up to five full high cube containers on the third row.
Equipped with an easily interchangeable hook block, this newly customised model offers the ability to handle bulk cargo of up to 60 t.
“Thanks to MultiRio’s con- fidence in our team’s expertise and ability to respond to their challenging requirements, the Terex TFC 46MS HC opens new doors to all end-users in the containerised port handling sector worldwide,” says Terex Cranes reach stacker design and development manager Manuel Teixeira.
He adds that the unit’s gross weight and the use of standard Terex components has enabled the manufacturer to increase operational cost efficiency, while reducing maintenance costs.
