ELME Spreader Model 817 is a telescopic top lift spreader for handling of laden ISO containers weighing up to 45 tonnes. 817 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. Spreader model 817 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. Sideshift is executed by two hydraulic cylinders on the outside of the mainframe. Rotation is done by a slewing ring with double transmissions for turning and brakes 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 unlocked. Each signal is a precondition for the important protection functions of the spreader, such as twistlock activation, telescoping and lift interrupt.
