Thanks to Anna for providing 45 ft container sidelifter trailer. Very suitable for my business. The main reason is that the beam is very strong, and the body is still automatically welded to be safe and reliable.

Our company is mainly responsible for container logistics at the terminal. So the side lifter is very suitable for us. It integrates container handling and transportation functions. When arriving at the port, it is wrapped with rain cloth to prevent seawater erosion. Very professional manufacturer.

1. What is the container side loader?

When we work in specific locations, sometimes there is limited space in the front and back of the container to load and unload the container, and the container side loader is the perfect solution. It is ideal to use the container side loader for delivery after transporting the container to the designated location. We can use the container side loader by placing the container parallel at half a meter and landing between the outer lifting feet.

8. How to operate the container side loader?

Container side loader work can be directly controlled by remote control. We have to ensure that the ground is hard and flat. Otherwise, problems are likely to occur. Usually, the PANDA container side lifter is equipped with wireless remote control, but the Container side loader must fix the receiver on the side loader truck. The receiver needs to be well protected. Although it is robust, it would be better to put it in the electric control cabinet, which will salt the receiver’s life.

9. Structure

Side loader trailer welding structure using high-strength steel, try to ensure the high strength of the case and reduce its self-weight, which needs to make a good design. Each side loader truck container has a 2-stage telescopic boom operated by a double-acting telescopic cylinder integrated into the boom gear.

Crane module – The crane module is an important part of the container side loader work. It uses hydraulic power. Through the crane, the container/goods can be transported from the ground, another vehicle, dock, warehouse, etc. to the designated location. The crane is on the top of the container side lifter truck trailer chassis and moves on the chassis track through hydraulic motors and hydraulic cylinders so that goods or containers of different widths can be loaded.

Drive power unit – The power unit is generally powered by a separate diesel engine, but some are also powered by a truck tractor, also known as a PTO.

Stabilizing legs – The stabilizing legs are hydraulic, their main function is to support the ground through the stabilizing legs so that the vehicle body remains stable when the container side loader is working, and there will be no rollover, especially in some uneven inside In some places, the role of the stabilizing leg is very important, and the extension of the outrigger can provide additional support when lifting in some narrow positions.

Tractor – Usually used to pull the container side loader, but sometimes it is also used as a power unit, and it also provides compressed air for the trailer’s brakes. Only after the tractor and the side loader truck are connected, the side loader trailer can work safely, because the tractor ensures the normal operation of the brake after supplying compressed air, and also plays a very important role in the stability of the container side lifter.

Chain – There will be a special linking device at the bottom of the container to link the chain to the container, and then start loading or unloading.

Chassis – The role of the chassis is very huge. It carries the weight of the crane and the cargo/container, so the requirements for the strength of the chassis are very strict, and only high-strength steel can do the job.

Remote control – When the side lifter trailer is working, there is a certain danger. When we are in control, we use the remote control, which can effectively avoid the occurrence of danger. It is more convenient to view the cargo/container from multiple angles through button and joystick operation, using a wire or radio signal connection.

  • 1. We need to dock the side loader trailer next to the container, parallel close, the distance is about 0.5m best, container side loader power is provided by the tractor or diesel engine.
  • 2. spread the crane legs and brace them on the ground. Side lifters should note that the environment must be hard and flat to prevent the legs from overturning when the force is applied.
  • 3. after propping on the ground, you can use the chain to connect to the container. The chain will be fixed in the dead corner of the container using a selected device.
  • 4. Then start lifting. When lifting, pay attention to the driver to stay away, and use the Side loader trailer can control the remote control.

Tip: Sometimes, we will transport 20ft and 40ft containers. They are of different sizes. We are loading. First of all, the crane will slide along the chassis to a more suitable position before working so that the loading process is more accessible and safer.
