Product range


The ELME spreader range includes spreaders for cranes, straddle carriers, lift trucks and reach stackers for ISO container handling and spreaders for intermodal handling, allowing the spreader to handle swap bodies, trailers and bottom lift containers.

Special Equipment

ELME Spreader offers a wide range of slave attachments and special equipment for cranes and trucks, e.g. tool changer, slab handler and spreaders with tilting function.


Our piggyback slave attachments are removable units for the handling of trailers, swap bodies and bottom lift containers. The attachments can be mounted under one of our spreaders or onto the forks of a lift truck.

ELME Servicebox

Our service box facilitates service job and preventive maintenance of the spreader by boxing up selected genuine parts. The box includes all the parts we consider needed to be replaced at service.
