HORIZONTAL FLOATING END-POSTS 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. MANUALLY ADJUSTABLE HEADS 586TB is supplied with a manually adjustable head. By manually adding or removing spacer blocks and bottom supports 586TB can handle ISO and Binnen container corner castings positioned at c/c 2258 mm with container widths up to 8’6”. TWISTLOCK SYSTEM The twistlock system is manufactured in a rugged design and is well-proven since many years. Spreader model 586TB is equipped with hardened ISO quick exchange twistlocks, hydraulically activated with electrical and mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking. The vertical twistlock principle offers the following features: • Two twistlocks enter the top corner castings and lock the spreader onto the container. • Spreader model 586TB is shorter than the container meaning that all containers can be block stacked and still remain accessible. 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.
