Taylor Machine Announces New Container Handler

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

“I am excited to reveal our newest addition to our line of over 100 models of Taylor material handling equipment. We listen to our customers and as a result, we are now offering the new XHRS-1000 that is specifically designed to take care of our inland rivers and waterway customers and their needs,” said Hal Nowell, Director of Sales of Taylor Machine Works.

As a proven and trusted brand in the ports and intermodal industry, the Taylor XHRS-1000 provides exceptional performance while operating in this very specialized negative lift environment. 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 purpose-built Reachstacker is well suited to tackle all inland waterway barge applications as well as any other heavy-duty negative lift application that should arise.

This new model, like all Taylor products, is backed by Sudden Service, Inc. and their specially trained personnel along with our dedicated team of Authorized Taylor Dealers across the United States and abroad.  Our goal is to provide high quality products and immediate assistance to our customers though sales, rentals, service and support.
