The ELME Spreader Model 582LT INNOVATION is the New Generation telescopic side lift spreader with 11 tonnes capacity for handling two empty ISO/reefer containers simultaneously. The containers are engaged by four horizontal twistlocks inserted into the side apertures of the container’s top and lower corner castings.

The spreader is designed to be integrated in the mast of a forklift truck and can handle one or two ISO/reefer and Binnen containers in 20 to 40ft. Special for 582LT INN. is that the spreader can double handle tank containers.

582LT INN. can double handle 45ft containers in 40ft’s corner castings and drive in free speed.

The spreader has a low single profile type mainframe which enhances visibility when high stacking.


INNOVATION’s unique 11 tonnes capacity designed for heavy duty double handling applications, combined with handling eccentric load, makes it possible to handle double reefer containers with the refrigeration units aligned.

The new and improved design implies a reinforced spreader with an increased structural strength, enhanced durability, beneficially designed Power pile slope (PPS), optimized hydraulic system, increased visibility for the driver and numerous other improvements for an outstanding functionality.

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


582LT INN. has hardened ISO quick exchange twistlocks, hydraulically activated 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, locking the spreader onto the containers positively and safely. . Upper twistlocks are extendable/retractable to ensure pick up from a misaligned container stack.
  • 582LT INNOVATION’s width is adapted to the dimensions of the container, which means that all containers can be fully 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


The ELME Neuron CAN bus system, designed for maximum robustness, monitors 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.

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.
