Barge handling reach stackers

Konecranes Lift Trucks offers a wide range of specialized reach stackers for barge container handling. Their remarkable flexibility and performance have made them popular with leading intermodal operators around the world. 

Lifting with exceptional power and stability, our intermodal reach stackers can handle containers up to the third row across rail tracks, road lanes or the hull of a barge. They are heavy duty machines with a long wheelbase, large lifting capacities and excellent maneuverability. Surprisingly smooth and easy to operate, your drivers and your business will enjoy outstanding productivity.

Did you know that we were first in the market with the modular nose distance concept, back in 1998? Konecranes 1st 9-m long barge handler dates back to 1998, delivered in Germany.

Barge handling is a special kind of intermodal because containers on floating barges can be below ground level. This requires an unusual downward angle for the boom, resulting in a negative lifting height. Support jacks are available for extra stability in case of a fourth row. 

Improve your drivers’ visibility with front twist lock cameras, help them lift straight with synchronized vertical lifting and use mechanical reverse speed limits for extra safety.
