Container Handling Equipment

A HAMMAR sideloader/sidelifter allows one person only, who both drives a truck and operates the sideloader, to load, transport a fully loaded 20' or 40' ISO-container. The HAMMAR is even designed to stack two loaded containers high on the ground. It can be used in soft/rough terrain, as well as in paved container yards and depots.

Independent of the load distribution, the HAMMAR will always lift the container level and will allow it to be handled with precision. The HAMMAR is ideally suited for transporting and grounding hospital shelters, containerised command centres, fuel tank tainers and field workshop shelters, when perfect control of the contents is necessary.

Defence Line Sideloaders

Hammar Maskin has been a supplier to the commercial container transport industry since 1974 and defence forces and aid organisations since 1985. The HAMMAR Defence Line sideloaders are well proven and very flexible equipment for transporting and handling all types and sizes of ISO-containers, including dry bulk containers, flat racks, tank containers and NATO standard A-frame racks, on and off road.less
