ELME Spreader Model 818 is a telescopic top lift spreader for handling of laden ISO containers weighing up to 45 tonnes. 818 is designed for use under a gantry at the front of a lift truck.

The strong and 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. 818 is equipped with hardened ISO quick exchange twistlocks, hydraulically activated with electrical and mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking.

GANTRY MOUNTING WITH MECHANICAL PILE SLOPE
Gantry mounting is used for lift trucks, dedicated to container handling only. Compared to fork mounting, the system increases the residual capacity of the truck and is thus a more economical solution. Four telescopic hangers connect the spreader to the gantry. Gravity assures the level position of the spreader, with or without load. However, the hangers will allow the spreader to automatically adapt to containers on trailers or on uneven ground.

TELESCOPING, SLEW, REACH AND SIDESHIFT SYSTEM
Telescoping is powered by one hydraulic cylinder inside each beam. The slew and reach motions are possible thanks to two hydraulic cylinders that connect the spreader to the gantry. By powering either one or both cylinders, the slew and reach functions are activated. A third cylinder between spreader and gantry provides the sideshift motion.

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.
