ELME Spreader Model 816 is a telescopic top spreader for the handling of laden ISO containers. 816 is designed for use with straddle carriers. The well-proven basic concept offers distinct advantages, such as two parallel telescopic beams, assuring max overlap. The beam sections are dimensioned to absorb not only the vertical, but also the very considerable horizontal forces. TWISTLOCK SYSTEM The twistlock system is manufactured in a rugged design and is well proven since many years. 816 is equipped with hardened ISO quick exchange twistlocks, hydraulically activated with electrical and mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking. EXTENSION SYSTEM Extension is powered by one hydraulic cylinder outside each beam. CONTROL AND PROTECTION SYSTEM Control voltage on the spreader is always converted to 24V DC for safety and reliability. Electrical systems monitor the state of the spreader at all times and gives signals 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, extension and retraction and lift interrupt.
