The ELME Spreader Model 582LT is a telescopic side lift spreader for the simultaneous handling of two empty ISO containers.

Model 582LT is the only double handling spreader on the market that enables block stacking and it's designed to be integrated on the carriage in the mast of a forklift truck. The spreader can handle one or two ISO or Binnen containers, with corner castings in 20ft and 40ft. With an ELME 582LT, it's possible to handle one or two tank containers. The spreader has a low profile main beam resulting in excellent visibility towards the spreader’s engagement points, particularly at high lift heights.

Model 582LT has a generous sideshift movement of ±600 mm (1200 mm in total) for operational flexibility provides for ‘reefer correction’ possibility.

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.

The twistlock system is manufactured in a rugged design and is well-proven since many years. Model 582LT is equipped with hardened ISO quick exchange twistlocks, hydraulically activated with electrical and mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking.

An ELME patent covers the innovative horizontal twistlock principle which offers the following features:

• Four purposely designed twistlocks enter the side apertures of the containers top and bottom corner castings, safely locking the spreader onto the containers.

• The upper twistlocks are extendable/retractable to ensure pick up from a misaligned container stack.

• 582LT is shorter than the container, meaning that all containers can be block stacked and still remain accessible.

• When handling tank containers, the driver is allowed to retract the upper twistlocks an additional 55 mm for container stack line up.

• Manually adjustable bottom support

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.
