Combilift SC3 Standard Straddle Carrier

Manufacturer: Combilift

The Combi-SC is much more economical option compared to heavy handling forklifts, reach stackers or mobile cranes and offers complete independence when moving very large fully laden containers, infact if an operation handles just six containers a week the return on investment in a Combilift Straddle Carrier is quickly achieved.

A key benefit of the Combi-SC is its much lighter unladen weight compared to heavy duty forklifts capable of lifting comparable loads. Weighing in at around 15,800 kg depending on the specific model, the greatly reduced ground pressure of the Combi-SC and its large flotation tires enables operation on poor and semi rough terrain, avoiding the need for costly investment on ground resurfacing or improvement.

  12. The load stabiliser can be added to an Straddle Carrier when lifting large pipes.

This prevents any swinging when travelling with the load.
