Hysters for Vale

A big pair of Hysters arrived by ship the other day. The name Hyster has long been associated with forklifts, but these two certainly push the envelope.
Type 46-41s CH They are in fact container reach stackers (minus their loading booms) and are rated at 45,000 kg for five high stacking.
See more in Hyster's brochure:

Hyster is now part of Gough Materials Handling and has a large European presence including a factory in Nijmegen, the Netherlands where these may have been built.
The window stickers on the two cabs state that they are for Vale, the large mineral producer.
