Yardmaster II reach stackers support load capacities up to 101,000 lb and are claimed to have the tightest turning radius in the container handling industry. Built with a Cummins 10.8L QSM 11 300 horsepower engine for an unladen lift speed of 94 ft/min, the Yardmaster II reach stackers can move the heaviest loads quickly and efficiently. In addition, the truck’s boom allows for lifting 9’6″ or 8’6″ containers five-high in the first row. The Yardmaster II series utilizes a combination of engine, transmission and hydraulic technologies. Improvements in cycle speeds enable the movement of more containers per hour, while an improved hydraulic system increases dependability and minimizes maintenance time. The series also features the Hyster ComforCab II, designed to optimize driver comfort and visibility for maximum productivity.

Models: RS46-29CH and RS46-33CH (D222)

Subject: Enhancements and New Model Names for D222 Reach Stackers


Hyster Company proudly announces product enhancements for the series code D222 ReachStacker line-up.

RS45-27CH and RS45-31CH models will see 1st and 2nd row capacity increases to 101,000 lbs (46,000 kg) in the first row. The RS45-27&31 models will carry new model names: RS46-29&33. The chart below clarifies the capacity improvements for both models. All of the larger models maintain existing capacity ratings and model names. This product family will be referred to as the RS46 series from now on.


This capacity increase brings even more flexibility and productivity, allowing heavier loads with a Hyster® Reach Stacker.


A total of seven container-handling models in the RS46 series are available (up to the RS46-41XLS 2nd rail machine), all allowing capability for stacking and storage of containers in the first row for up to five or six containers high and up to three container rows deep. In addition, a wide range of options and special solutions are available to ensure an excellent match of the truck to almost any application.

New features on all trucks

The standard truck configuration has been upgraded:

  • LED brake, backup and strobe lights
  • LED cabin dome light; optional reading light is LED
  • Joystick requires less rotation, improving ergonomics and control
  • Coat hook inside the operator compartment

New options available LED and High-Performance LED work lights – 

New LED and high-performance LED work light package options are now available, enhancing operator productivity with better visibility at night and in low-light areas. These high-performance LED lights (HP-LED) deliver the same luminosity as the HID Xenon lights, but provide substantially longer life. With the introduction of these new lights, HID lights will no longer be available.

Rear view camera –  A rear view camera is now available, enhancing visibility and awareness for the operator when driving backward. The system is available in two configurations:

  • With display mounted behind the operator (just under the rear window) for the operator to see when they are facing rearward, or
  • With display mounted in front of the operator when they are forward facing. This option is not recommended for reverse driving, as the operator should always look in the travel direction.

The display location can be tailored to the customer’s preference and requirements, providing the best solution for the application.

The camera is mounted on top of the counterweight, providing an optimal view angle. When reverse gear is selected, the monitor is automatically activated.

Seats & seat belts –  RS46 seat offerings have been updated:

  • A deluxe seat with vinyl cover has all the excellent ergonomic features of the current deluxe (cloth) seat.
  • Non-deluxe air suspension seats are no longer available.
  • All seats are equipped with a red, high-visibility, two-point seat belt as standard.

All deluxe seats can be ordered with either a two- or three-point seat belt.
