When buying a Hammar you always get a high quality Hammar designed Sideloader chassis, optimized and made for Sideloader operations.
We have a number of different Sideloader trailer models to fulfil our customers’ requirements, which are then adapted to suit local regulations and the customer’s needs.
Fixed Chassis/Sliding Cranes (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 (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 (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 (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.
Models 110, 130, 140, 155, 180 and 195 can be mounted directly on a truck chassis. Truck mounting the Sideloader provides unbeatable manoeuvrability where 20’ container handling is required.
We offer different axle configurations to your Hammar chassis; different numbers 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 with low overall height restrictions. Max 36 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 Sideloader.
Low bed chassis
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.
