The ELME Spreader Model 588TB is a telescopic side lift spreader with vertical twistlocks for the handling of single empty ISO containers.

The spreader is designed to be integrated on the carriage of a forklift truck. 588TB has a low single profile main frame which enhances visibility when high stacking.

SIDESHIFT
A generous sideshift movement of ±600 mm (1200 mm in total) provides operational flexibility.

VERTICAL FLOATING END-POSTS
For easier pick up and fast handling of containers, the end-posts have a sideways floating distance of ±36 mm.

HORIZONTAL FLOATING END-POSTS
The head and bottom of the spreader end-posts are integrated, and the end-posts have a a floating distance of 200 mm. Floating end-posts facilitates handling of containers on/from a sloping surface.

TWISTLOCK SYSTEM
The twistlock system is manufactured in a rugged design and is well-proven since many years. 588TB is equipped with hardened ISO quick exchange twistlocks, hydraulically activated with electrical and mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking. The vertical twistlock principle offers the following features:

• Two twistlocks enter the top corner castings and lock the spreader onto the container.

• 588TB is shorter than the container meaning that all containers can be block stacked and still remain accessible.

• ISO containers and Binnen containers can be picked up without any modification of the spreader.

CONTROL AND PROTECTION SYSTEM
Electrical systems monitor the state of the spreader at all times. Indicator lights advise the operator when the spreader is correctly seated, locked or unlocked. Each signal is a precondition for the important protection functions of the spreader, such as twistlock activation, telescoping and lift interrupt.

All specifications are subject to change without notice. A list of options enables you to adapt the product more precisely to your needs and further information is available on request.
