Why the Hammar 155 Sideloader?

The Hammar 155 is designed with high strength and stability in mind. With its Step-Over support leg it can safely and efficiently transfer containers and cargo to/from another chassis or rail wagon. The 155 can be equipped with more advanced lifting options, such as top spreaders, extendable reach cranes and high cube stacking. During operation, the Step-Over support leg unfolds and extends 3.2 meters outward in a ”step-over” motion. Due to the legs great outreach the 155 has excellent stability and very low ground pressure during operations. When transferring the legs are placed at ground level, on the opposite side of the companion chassis. The Hammar 155 is excellent for transferring and special operations. With a lifting capacity up to 42 tonnes, it is the strongest transfer specialist. It is the best choice when you are looking at multiple transferring operations and extra heavy duty lifting.

Hammar 155 Sideloader Groundlift

Lifting from/to ground level

Easy, safe and extra stable handling to/from ground level. It is an excellent choice for environments where low ground pressure is a requirement. A full handling cycle takes 3.5-4.5 minutes.

Hammar 155 Sideloader Transfer

Transfer from/to another chassis

The Hammar 155 is a specialist at transferring containers or other cargo to/from another chassis or rail wagon. The Step-Over support legs are placed on the opposite side of the companion chassis or rail wagon. This makes transferring operations easier, safer and more efficient.

Hammar 155 side lifter stacking

Stacking option

The Hammar 155 can be equipped with 30 tonnes high cube 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.

Alternative support positions

The 155 support leg can also be placed on top a chassis or rail wagon while folded, or be placed on the ground partly folded - useful if there is not enough space to extend it to its full length.

Hammar 155 chassis options

When buying a Hammar Sideloader you always get a high quality Hammar designed chassis, optimized and made for Sideloader operations. We have a number of models to fulfil our customers’ requirements, which are then adapted to suit local regulations and the customer’s needs.

Fixed Chassis/Sliding Cranes - 155 S

The S-chassis is a fixed length, and has sliding cranes meaning it can handle multiple container sizes. It has a straight forward design and the lowest tare weight of all Hammar chassis. It is the most common model used world-wide. Also available with fixed cranes for single size containers upon request.

Fixed Sliding (S) Animation

Telescopic chassis, Combination - 155 C

The most common telescopic chassis is the C-chassis (Combination). It combines sliding cranes with a telescopic chassis, and has a low tare weight. The sliding cranes enable optimized weight distribution of your load. A telescopic chassis is a requirement in some countries for transporting 45' or longer containers on the road.

Telescopic Combination (C) Animation

Telescopic chassis, Advanced - 155 A

The A-chassis (Advanced) is a unique chassis from Hammar and, as the name suggests, the most advanced. It is made of three moving chassis parts and has sliding cranes. This makes it possible to optimise the weight distribution for both 2 and 3-axle trucks, as well as for different container sizes. It is also possible to make it shorter than a C-chassis in its shortest position (20’).

Telescopic Advanced (A) Animation

Telescopic chassis, Trombone - 155 T

The T-chassis (Trombone) is the simplest telescopic chassis. The chassis extends and retracts between 20’-40’ modes and has fixed cranes. The T-chassis can be built to the shortest length, providing a high level of manoeuvrability when transporting 20’ containers.

Telescopic Trombone T-animation

Truck mounted - 155 B

The Hammar 110 can be mounted directly on a truck chassis. This provides the Sideloader with unbeatable manoeuvrability where 20’ container handling is required.

Chassi adaptions

Sideloader Axle Configuration

Axle configurations

We offer different axle configurations to your Hammar chassis; different number of axles, optimized weight distrubution and more. All conforming to your operations and local regulations.

Hammar Gooseneck Adaption

Gooseneck chassis

Our trailer chassi models can be built as a gooseneck chassis. A gooseneck chassis is designed to transport 40'+ High Cube containers in countries where height restrictions makes this a requirement.

Road Train Options

Road train options

Hammar chassis can be built with a 5th wheel for pulling a semi trailer behind, or a drawbar coupling for pulling a trailer. This allows you to have a road train that you can load with the Sideloader.

Hammar Dropdeck

Dropdeck chassis

A Hammar trailer chassis can be built as a dropdeck chassis, giving a significantly lower load bed. Excellent for extra high loads or other situations restricting the height of the vehicle.
