Spreader Transporter


  • Designed to transport container spreader bars from maintenance shop to the crane and back and provide a low platform for working on the spreader bar.
  • Typical scenario has a spare working spreader bar stored on the rear of the transporter in the 20’ position.
  • When a breakdown occurs on an operating spreader bar, the transporter is dispatched, goes under the crane and has the disabled bar dropped on the forward half of the trailer. The trailer is pulled 20’ forward and the new spreader bar is fastened to the head block.
  • The broken spreader is then transported to the shop for repair right on the trailer.
