Hammar Sideloaders in the Antarctic
Hammar Lift in USA has recently delivered a HAMMAR 195 HB for attachment onto a 20’ sledge for transport and handling of 20’ ISO containers in the Antarctic. The sledge is pulled by a snow cat and two containers can be transported at the same time. One on the HAMMAR and one on an accompanying (B-double) sledge. This is an unusual unit, but a perfect way to handle containers in one of the most remote areas on our planet.
The support legs are painted white, to avoid the sun heating them up. This prevents the snow and ice on the ground to melt from heat, avoiding supports from sinking into the ground.
