ELME Spreader Model 517 is a telescopic top lift spreader for the handling of empty ISO containers weighing up to 8 tonnes. 517 is designed for mounting on reach stackers. 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. Model 517 is equipped with hardened ISO quick exchange twistlocks, hydraulically activated with electrical and mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking. TELESCOPING, SIDESHIFT AND ROTATION SYSTEM Telescoping is powered by one hydraulic cylinder inside each beam. A generous sideshift of ±800 mm is executed by one hydraulic cylinder on the outside of the mainframe. Rotation, +105°/-195°, is performed by a slewing ring with single transmission for turning and brake for holding. 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 not locked. Each signal is a precondition for the important protection functions of the spreader, such as twistlock activation, telescoping and lift interrupt.
