Things to consider with your next purchase of a container lifter

Be specific about what you want to achieve with your container lifter. Determine how many containers you’re moving each day/week. What type of containers do you need to move? Look at your operation and determine what space you have for storage of your container, do you need your lifter to move inside warehouses or under awnings? Take a look at the ground surface of your operation, how much weight can it take, how much weight do you need to move across the yard?

All of the above questions and more can be answered quickly and easily with a Mobicon Straddle Carrier.

What is a Mobicon Straddle Carrier?

The Mobicon is a patented two-tower Gantry Crane or Straddle Carrier of unique design.  When no container is being carried, the two towers are connected by draw-bars.  When a container is handled, the rear tower carries the rear of the container, and the front tower carries the front of the container.  The container then becomes part of the Straddle Carrier structure.

As the Mobicon Straddle Carrier attaches itself in the side holes of the container corner castings, it can handle all types of containers, including flatbeds, bolsters and half high containers and tank containers.
