The company’s trailer frames and crane sets are made in Olsfors, Sweden for export to over 80 countries around the world. All other components used to make US DOT-approved trailers – axles, hubs, wheels, brakes, suspensions and lighting systems – are sourced in the US by Hammar Lift Inc’s West Coast operation, where trailer manufacturing and final assembly is carried out. All trailer components are also available at most North American trailer repair specialists, while Hammar Lift Inc stocks all crane parts.
As well as normal day-to-day operations, sideloaders are ideal for the many after-market uses to which containers are put when they are retired from service, according to Hammar. Such uses include the household rental and storage market, use on construction sites as offices and tool storage, military transport and disaster relief operations.
The sideloader is a one-man system that is designed to lift and transport containers, loaded and level, with the minimum of handling effort. Hammar SideLoaders are available in a variety of configurations and lift capacities, including a 12-tonne fixed-frame 20 ft system mounted on a truck, and a 12- to 40-tonne lift capacity truck- or trailer-mounted unit that is available in various configurations.
