10 Tonne Swing Thru

Container Handling System

This Self Loading Container Trailer was designed for both the road transport and military sectors for handling empty containers and full containers weighing up to 10,000kg.  
The popular demountable model 10 Tonne Swing Thru can be easily attached or detached from a truck or trailer in under 10 minutes. Operators can utilise their existing vehicle fleet and continue to use their trucks or trailers for duties other than container handling.   
Robust and simple to operate, the reliability of the 10 Tonne Swing Thru has been proven in military operations around the world for both logisics chain and emergency management applications.   
Swing Thru equipment is built of high quality steel and manufactured to the AS1418 crane code.  

27 Tonne Swing Thru

Container Handling System

The 27 Tonne double-sided Swing Thru has been designed to offer maximum operational flexibility and provide the most efficient and stable platform for both pick-up-and-carry and transfer applications. This model is fitted with two Swing Thru slam-down legs on one side of the machine and two overdeck legs on the opposing side.   
The rapidly deployable slam-down side is for pick-up-and-carry applications, whilst the overdeck side is for transferring containers to and from other trucks, trailers and railway wagons as overdeck legs have by far the best stability and also allow transhipment to other vehicles without the legs having to be placed on the second vehicle by deploying over the deck of the second vehicle to reduce the risk of damage to the second vehicle.   
The 27 Tonne Swingthru sideloader has been purchased by both Road Transport operators and Military customers.

35 Tonne Swing Thru

Container Handling System

Developed for and in conjunction with the Rail industry, the 35 Tonne Swing Thru is also utilised by the mining industry because of its robust construction and ease of operation. This model Swing Thru is an alternative to large and heavy traditional container lifting methods in areas of seasonal or low container volumes.   
The double-sided nature of the Swing Thru enables it to be positioned between a truck and rail wagon and used as a mobile crane. A full container can be delivered to one side of the Swing Thru and an empty container picked up from the other without having to reposition the vehicle. This cannot be achieved with a single-sided side-loader.   
The Swing Thru operates wherever the host vehicle can travel and does not require sealed yards. As it is truck mounted and road legal it can easily be repositioned between multiple sites making it ideal for handling seasonal or peak container volumes such as agricultural harvests or factory outputs. Additionally the same Swing Thru unit that can load or unload rail wagons can also deliver containers door to door.
