Hysters for Vale
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: http://www.hyster.co.nz/Site/Files/8/1a1cbd455e6e13d7537b3aee6bfe019/d995967d18e86ef33ba209969c39b083/Reach-Stacker.pdf
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.
