Intermodal and Port Equipment

Taylor Machine Works has been producing intermodal and port equipment – such as container handlers, reachstackers, and RoRo lift trucks – for decades.

A leader in the space, Taylor is constantly improving the capabilities of their port equipment to fit the needs of their customers. Taylor’s cutting-edge line of container handlers can stack containers up to 8-high.

The Taylor XRS-9972 reachstacker is able to pick and stack containers as far back as the third row, greatly increasing the efficiency of your port operations.

Recycling Industry

An important piece of their ever-growing catalog of material handling machines, Taylor engineers their recycling and scrap equipment to withstand the harsh environments in which they operate.

Consider a Taylor wheel loader, such as the T-1025 Recycler, for handling and hauling large quantities of recyclables across the scrap yard. Taylor wheel loaders are upfitted with a variety of parts and attachments to better handle the daily needs of customers in the scrap and recycling industries.

Also present in Taylor’s line of recycling equipment is the all-new T40-MH material handler, which has an operating weight of 88,000 lbs. and comes standard with a chassis w/ 4-point outriggers, a 51-foot scrap handling boom, and a hydraulic cab riser with an access platform.

Log and Pipe Handlers

The logging and pipeline industries are embedded in Taylor’s DNA, as their first ever lift truck – the Logger’s Dream – was developed to increase the efficiency of the timber industry.

Fast forward more than 80 years and Taylor is still cranking out top-of-the-line timber equipment to streamline customer operations.

Whether it be a sprawling pipeline job or a more traditional lumber operation, these powerful pneumatic lift trucks are right at home in the mud and muck of the worksite.

With a wide variety of available attachments, Taylor log and pipe handlers are second to none in terms of versatility.


Also present in Taylor’s line of scrap and recycling equipment is their all-new line of material handlers.

Manufactured with superior components and engineered to operate in the harshest of environments, Taylor material handlers are available in four ultra-durable builds – the T40-MH, T40MH XD, T50-MH, and the T60-MH.

Each model differs slightly in terms of capacity, but are all extremely versatile in that their 51-foot sticks/booms can be outfitted with a variety of attachments.
