A Sideloader consists of two side lifting cranes combined with a trailer or truck. There are four basic Sideloader operations: lifting from/to ground level, transfer from/to another chassis or rail wagon, stacking containers and road transport. A full handling time is 2-4 minutes.
From/to ground lifting
A Hammar Sideloader can load/unload a shipping container or other cargo directly from/to the ground. Once the goods are on the ground the Sideloader can continue to the next job, and the container can be packed/unpacked in a safe and efficient manner.
From/to another trailer or rail wagon
A Hammar Sideloader can transfer a container from/to a trailer, truck or rail wagon. This means it can serve as a mobile lifting device or as part of a convoy, loading/unloading other trailers or wagons. This also means the Sideloader can serve as an intermodal tool.
A Sideloader allows to safely lift a container and transport it by road in accordance with all regulations. No other equipment has the ability to both transport and lift with the same cost-efficiency and performance as a Hammar Sideloader.
A Sideloader can be equipped with a stacking function, which allows you to put a container on top of another placed on the ground. By double-stacking the customer can save valuable space. Containers stacked on top of each other also enable higher cargo security.
