The support legs are extending and tilting, making its positioning very versatile. An excellent quality when you have a wide range of different operations. The Hammar 151 is an all-round model, excellent for both ground level lifts and transferring to/from another chassis. It is the best choice when you want to maximize lifting capacity or require the advanced lifting options available together with the versatile support legs.

Hammar 151 Side loader Lifting

Lifting from/to ground

The Hammar 151 Sideloader lifts containers to/from the ground with maximum safety and ease. A full handling cycle takes 3-4 minutes. The versatile positioning of the support leg gives more options for handling containers where space is limited.

Hammar 151 Sideloader Transfer

Transfer from/to another chassis

The Hammar 151 can transfer to/from another chassis, including rail wagons. The versatile support legs can be placed behind/in front of the companion chassis, or on top or under it. When handling a lighter load, they can also be placed vertically down.

Hammar 151 Sideloader Stacking

Stacking option

The Hammar 151 can be equipped with 30 tonnes stacking capacity, enabling stacking of two High cube (9’ 6”) containers. Two extra support legs are mounted on the non-lifting side for extra stability and safety.

Hammar 151 Sideloader Supportleg

Versatile support legs

The support legs of the 151 model are extendable and tilting. They have up to 1.9 meters outreach when placed on ground level and can tilt to stand vertically (with reduced lifting capacity). This allows multiple different support positions, enabling the 151 to handle almost any situation with ease.
