What is a Reach Stacker?

To operate a reach stacker you need to have an RS high risk work licence (HRW).

The reach stacker licence covers powered reach stackers (with a capacity of three tonnes or more) that have an attachment for lifting, lowering, moving and travelling with a shipping container.

In Queensland, until 31 December 2016, a person who holds a non-slewing mobile crane licence (CN) is also permitted to operate a reach stacker without holding an RS licence. From 1 January 2017, the RS HRW licence class must be held for the operation of a reach stacker.

Note: this licence cannot be used to operate a portainer crane.

Course Description

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to operate a reach stacker safely.

Reach stacker means a powered reach stacker that incorporates an attachment for lifting and lowering a shipping container.

This unit applies to the activities of a person operating a reach stacker greater than 3 tonnes capacity that incorporates an attachment for lifting, moving and travelling with a shipping container (not including a portainer crane).

A person performing this work is required to hold a reach stacker high risk work (HRW) licence.

This unit requires a person operating a reach stacker to plan work, conduct routine checks, prepare reach stacker operations, operate reach stacker, travel reach stacker and mobile container, and shut down and secure reach stacker.
