PPM Cranes To Produce First U.S.-Built Container Reach Stacker

PPM Cranes, Inc., of Conway, S.C., has introduced the first U.S.- made container reach stacker, a 44- ton capacity unit for five-high stacking of 8-foot 6-inches high cube containers.

Called the P&H Superstacker, the machine will be produced in Conway where the company manufactures a broad line of P&H mobile cranes.

Specifically designed to meet the requirements of U.S. container yards, the new Superstacker will be made with U.S.-sourced components, including: a drive train with a Cummins engine, Clark torque converter and Rockwell wet disc brake drive axle; weldment structures, such as the main chassis, telescope boom and frame; and the majority of hydraulic and mechanical systems including valves, hoses and cylinders.
