The ELME Spreader Model 582LT is a telescopic side lift spreader for the simultaneous handling of two empty ISO containers.
Model 582LT is the only double handling spreader on the market that enables block stacking and it's designed to be integrated on the carriage in the mast of a forklift truck. The spreader can handle one or two ISO or Binnen containers, with corner castings in 20ft and 40ft. With an ELME 582LT, it's possible to handle one or two tank containers. The spreader has a low profile main beam resulting in excellent visibility towards the spreader’s engagement points, particularly at high lift heights.
Model 582LT has a generous sideshift movement of ±600 mm (1200 mm in total) for operational flexibility provides for ‘reefer correction’ possibility
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
