Our latest development

The Straddle Carrier is a carrying vehicle that carries the bundle underneath by "straddling" it, rather than carrying it on top like a conventional truck. The advantage of the straddle carrier is its ability to load and unload without the assistance of cranes or forklifts. The lifting apparatus under the carrier is operated by the driver without any outside assistance and without leaving the driver's seat.

It's suitable for transporting max. 25T bundles on pallets with a diameter up to 1,8 mtr.  For improved transport the entire cabin is adjustable in height and the driver’s seat is air suspended. The Straddle carrier is equipped with a mechanical suspension and has 4 wheel, mechanical, steering. The wheels are propelled through hydraulic power. The lift and ‘arm’ cylinders are manually controlled through balancing valves. 

The Straddle carrier comes with CE certification including all required documentation. Both air-conditioning or centralized greasing system are optionals and do not come as standard.
