The RTCH-RT 240 is equipped with several electronic modules, all connected using CAN-BUS technology. The mod-
ules can be diagnosed using the IETM and OEM testing equipment. They assist in the operation of major systems such as
engine, transmission shifting, steering mode, and wheel position, safe working load control, and many related functions that
require data input to operate correctly for the intended uses of the RTCH-RT 240.
LIFTING BOOM AND TOPHANDLER
The lifting boom and tophandler is an electro-hydraulic operated heavy-duty telescoping boom and spreader assembly,
designed to lift, move, and stack/unstack 20 to 40 ft (6.10 to 12.19 m) ISO containers. The operator joystick provides complete
control of the lifting boom and tophandler during container handling operations. The boom provides lifting/lowering and
extending/retracting operations. The tophandler or spreader provides for sideshifting, rotation, forward/rear tilting, left/right
tilting, and load leveling and locking operations. The tophandler also provides interface capability with a forklift attachment.
The forklift kit is attached to the tophandler twistlocks and two hydraulic hose quick-disconnects. Forklift operation is
controlled from the tophandler joystick and includes adjustable fork tines. The fork tines and vertical support beams fold under
the forklift framework for transport.
