ELME Spreader Model 857 is a container and trailer handling spreader for the handling of all laden ISO containers weighing up to 45 tonnes. 857 is designed for use with 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 857 is equipped with hardened, pendular ISO twistlocks, hydraulically activated with electrical and mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking. GRAPPLE ARM SYSTEM The ELME patented load clamping system involves all four foldable grapple arms in an automatic sequence. This feature enables the spreader to be lowered between containers that are block stacked front to front and side to side. The feet are designed according European standard and made of HARDOX® material in order to extend lifetime. Sensors (integrated in the feet) detect when the trailer is clamped and send signals to the indication system. To avoid unclamping, a signal is also sent as soon as the container/trailer is lifted off the ground. TELESCOPING, SIDESHIFT AND ROTATION SYSTEM Extension is powered by one hydraulic cylinder inside each beam. Sideshift is executed by two hydraulic cylinders on the outside of the main frame. 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 not locked, clamped or not clamped. Each signal is a precondition for the important protection functions of the spreader such as twistlock activation, telescoping, grapple legs and lift interrupt.
