Reach stackers are material handling vehicles used for moving and stacking ISO containers in ports, rail yards, and other intermodal terminals. Reach stackers are valued for their ability to create container blocks six high and four wide, depending upon the attachments with which the reacher is outfitted. A telescoping boom provides the extension, and a container spreader locks onto the cargo. Attachments such as hooks and forks increase a reach spreader's material handling versatility.
