  • Lift modules
  • Trailer or chassis to which the lift modules are fitted.
  • The Swinglift lift modules are constructed from ultra high tensile steel giving extreme strength. They incorporate the outstanding wide reach stabilizer leg and jibs controlled by a hydraulic system powered either from an independent diesel engine (APU), or from the tractors power take off system (PTO). The lift modules slide smoothly in or out for 20’;40’ or 45’ positions on tubular slide rails. Swinglift has engineered the unique Lattice chassis which is the industry preferred standard giving a very low tare weight while maintaining excellent strength. This combination provides the best, safest and strongest Swinglift available in the market. Stability Plus
    The wide span of the stabilizer leg and outboard jib pivot provide fast, safe operation even under difficult conditions. Because of its high stability, the Swinglift is able to lift up to 40 tonne balanced containers under adverse conditions. The centre of the container mass is always at least 1 metre within the line of stabilizer support. In other container side loaders the container mass passes outside the stabilizer support, making it less stable. The unique Swinglift “Leg over design” offers greater stability than other leg designs that extend downwards triangularly from the lift modules and which can act as fulcrum points that tend to tip a side loader over when handling heavy containers. Swinglift is the safest and lightest tare container side loader available in the market place regardless of whether lifting empty 20’ or heavy 40’ containers. Container Transfer - Fast & Simple
    Transferring to and from a Swinglift to a skeletal or flat-topped truck is straightforward. When the stabilizers are extended there is ample room for a truck to back into position under the stabilizers for loading, or the stabilizers can be lowered after the skeletal or flat-topped trailer is in position alongside. Over 300mm clearance is available each side of the transferring trailer. Faster turnaround time from start to finish than other side loaders. Faster transfer from trailer to trailer even when the Swinglift itself is loaded with a container. Can transfer to a Quad axle trailer coupled to a four-axle tractor without having to jack knife the adjoining truck and Quad axle trailer. The lift modules do not need to place their stabilizer legs on the adjoining trailer or rail wagon to obtain stability. Swinglifts can handle containers up to 9’6” high. High Payload
    The HC40/20 Swinglift has the highest payload capacity. The light, well-engineered ultra-high-tensile lift modules and chassis result in an exceptionally low tare weight well below tare of other side loaders. Advantages of this low tare weight are payloads well above those of other side loaders. Radio Control
    Radio Remote Control is standard with all Swinglift models. The control system allows movement of both lift modules with a single button operation with two levels of depression with fast speed for quick operation or slow speed for precise and accurate positioning of containers. Compact, easy to use, one hand operation makes for a safe working environment for the operator. Working in Restricted Spaces
    Swinglifts work well in tight spaces. With the stabilizer arm slightly retracted, the Swinglift can pick up or put down a fully loaded container hard up against another container or against a wall. When loading or unloading at a loading dock the stabililizer leg can be unfolded and leaving the leg completely folded up the stabilizer then kneels by the container resting on a pad at the “knee” of the stabilizer.
      The Swinglift can be defined in two parts:
