Spreader Model 8915 is a telescopic top spreader for handling of laden ISO containers up to 41 tonnes. 8915 is designed for mounting on Mobile Harbor Cranes.
The strong and basic concept offers distinct advantages, such as two parallel telescopic beams, assuring max overlap. Beam sections dimensioned to absorb not only the vertical, but also the very considerable horitzontal forces.
The twistlock system is manufactured in a rugged design and is well-proven since many years. 8915 has hardened, pendulling ISO quick exchange twistlocks, hydraulically activated with electrical and mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking.
Telescoping is powered by one hydraulic cylinder inside each beam.
CENTER OF GRAVITY ADJUSTMENT
Center of gravity adjustment is executed by one hydraulic cylinder on top of the mainframe.
The six sideflippers are each powered by two hydraulic cylinders mounted well protected.
Double electric motor- and pump assemblies assure simultaneous telescoping of both beams. Spreader can be operated with one electric motor and pump.
CONTROL AND PROTECTION SYSTEM
Control voltage on the spreader is always converted to 24V DC for safety and reliability. 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. Each signal is a precondition for the important protection functions of the spreader. Such as twistlock activation, telescoping and lift interrupt.
