Not all light-weight Straddle Carriers are created equally.


Not all light-weight straddle carriers are created equal and weight distribution is a very important issue to consider before purchasing.  Whether the weight of the machine, plus a container, is distributed across two or four axles can have a dramatic impact on your concrete. When purchasing a light-weight straddle carrier you will need to determine whether the concrete in your yard is thick enough to withstand the weight.  In order to provide our customers with more clarity regarding this matter, Mobicon Systems commissioned an independent study on this issue.
