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 - 160 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.
Telescopic chassis, Combination - 160 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 chassis, Advanced - 160 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 chassis, Trombone - 160 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.
We offer different axle configurations to your Hammar chassis; different number of axles, optimized weight distribution and more. All conforming to local regulations and your needs.
Our trailer chassis 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. Max 33 tonnes lifting capacity.
Road train options
A Hammar chassis can be built with a 5th wheel/turntable or a drawbar coupling for towing another semi-trailer or full-trailer behind. This allows you to have a road train that you can load and unload with the Sidelifter.
A Hammar trailer chassis can be built as a low bed chassis, giving a significantly lower overall height when loaded. Excellent for extra high loads or other situations that restrict the height of the vehicle.
A centre container beam with 4 twist locks is mounted. With the 2 twin-locks (joiners) included you can connect and lift 2 lightly loaded 20' containers simultaneously. Heavier can be transported.
Raise & Lower function
Allows the operator to adjust the height of the trailer when loading/unloading. Extremely useful when operating on uneven ground, or when transferring from/to a higher or lower companion chassis.
The Hammar is equipped and adapted for handling of dangerous goods according to local regulations.
The Hammar can be equipped with two different weighing systems; a load indicator system with an accuracy of ± 400 kg and/or a SOLAS certified scale with an accuracy down to ±50 with optional printer.
Composite foot plates
Two foot plates of recycled composite material. Placed under the support legs or trailer landing legs, they drastically reduce the ground pressure. Comes with storage brackets on the Hammarlift.
Adjustable container stops
Adjustable container stops allow for transport of over-wide containers, e.g. tank or pallet wide containers.
Equip your Hammarlift with the capacity to stack two containers high, from ground level. N/A for model 130 and 140.
Replace one of the support legs to the extending underslung leg. Excellent when support positions are below a chassis, rail wagon or similar. Available for model 110, 130, 151, 155, 160, 195.
Automatic container twist locks
Automatic crane twist locks for more efficient operations and less room for human error. Connected to automatically open/close when the crane power is engaged/disengaged.
Central Lubrication System
Automated centralized lubrication system supplying all greasing points on the crane and trailer. Reduces maintenance time and costs, and increases the product life time.
Hammar Optical positioning equipment
“HOPE” - Optical sensors reading the position of a container next to the Sideloader when lining up, alerting with a green light when cranes are in correct position for lifting. Increases efficiency.
Alloy toolbox mounted on the non-lifting side of the Hammar Sideloader.
Lifting one axle when driving with less load. Saves greatly on tyre wear. Lowers automatically when maximum legal load is reached on the other axles.
Radio remote control
Cordless radio remote for all Hammar functions. The operator can control the lifting from any position outside the hazard zone, increasing usability, efficiency and safety. Choose a 1 or 2 hand unit.
A high quality, PLC based monitoring system that provides maximum safety. The mass and position of the load is continuously monitored. Includes a display that shows a number of useful variables.
A camera or reverse sensor is installed in the rear of the Hammarlift. Increases efficiency, usability, safety and prevents damages.
