Why the Hammar 180 Sidelifter?

The Hammar 180 is a Sidelifter dedicated to permanent mounting on a truck chassis. It is designed with low tare weight and usability in mind. It has the lowest tare weight of all truck mounted Sidelifters. Choose between 12 , 15, 20, 25 or 30 tonnes lifting capacity (model 181, 182, 183, 184 or 185) and a large number of lifting options. During operation the support legs extend in a single, diagonal direction to be placed at ground level. The support legs are mounted at a low height relative to the truck chassis, meaning they have a low working height.
