Why the Hammar 160 Sideloader?

The Hammar 160 is a proven Sideloader model, designed with simplicity and reliability in mind. With 36 tonnes lifting capacity it can easily handle fully loaded containers. It has the lowest tare weight on the market for any Sideloader model with a lifting capacity over 30 tonnes, from 7.1 tonnes with 20’-40’ capacity and 3 axles. The support legs move in a fixed arc. They can be placed in two positions: on ground level or on top of a companion chassis or rail wagon. The Hammar 160 is the best choice when you want to maximize your payload. It is excellent at lifting to/from the ground, and works well when transferring to/from some companion chassis.

Lifting from/to ground

The Hammar 160 is fast, easy and safe for lifting containers to/from ground level. A full handling cycle only takes 3-4 minutes.

Hammar 160 Sideloader Transfer

Transfer from/to another chassis

Hammar 160 can transfer to/from a number of other chassis types. The support legs are both placed onto the companion chassis or with one support leg behind or in front of it.

Hammar 160 Sideloader Stacking

Stacking option

Hammar 160 can be equipped with 30 tonnes stacking capacity, enabling stacking of two 8’6” containers. Two extra support legs are mounted on the non-lifting side for safety and extra stability.

Hammar 160 Lightest Sideloader

Maximum payload

The Hammar 160 is the lightest heavy duty Sideloader in the world, providing lower emissions, less wear and maximum payload on the road.

Hammar 160 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 - 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.

Fixed Sliding (S) Animation

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 Combination (C) Animation

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 Advanced (A) Animation

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.

Chassis adaptions

Sideloader Axle Configuration

Axle configurations

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.

Hammar Gooseneck Adaption

Gooseneck chassis

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

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.

Hammar Dropdeck

Dropdeck 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.
