SB450 Sidelifter

45 Tonne Lifting Capacity sidelifters

The SB450 Standard Sidelifter is the ticket when you need to safely and efficiently transfer heavy loads.

A rigid chassis self-loading trailer, the SB450 features dependable technology, robust construction and user-friendly control systems. Safe to operate and simple to maintain, the SB450 lets you place your heavy loads with precision even in tight operational situations.

Features:

  • 45-tonne lifting capacity.
  • 3.9 m outreach.
  • Handles 20′, 40′ and 2×20′ containers.
  • Load and unload the container from the ground, double stack and trailer or rail wagon transfers.
  • Lowline cranes to minimise wear and tear.
  • Stable, accurate foot positioning – underneath or on deck of companion vehicle.
  • Dual speed proportional control allows for controlled, fast and precise container placement.

The SB450 Gooseneck Sidelifter semi-trailer brings you all the benefits of the SB450 Standard, but with a low chassis frame – making it the optimal solution in countries where height is an issue.

Containers sit just above the truck coupling height. This makes it easier to access warehouses, safer to drive under bridges or through tunnels, and minimises the risk of hitting low hanging power lines. The SB450 Gooseneck self-loading trailer is also ideal for carrying high cube containers.

Features:

  • 45-tonne lifting capacity.
  • 3.9 m outreach.
  • Handles 20′, 40′ and 2×20′ containers.
  • Load and unload the container from the ground, double stack and trailer or rail wagon transfers.
  • Lowline cranes to minimise wear and tear.
  • Stable, accurate foot positioning – underneath or on deck of companion vehicle.
  • Dual speed proportional control allows for controlled, fast and precise container placement.

The SB450 Trombone Sidelifter has been designed to give operators maximum flexibility.

It features an adjustable trailer chassis which can be either extended or retracted in order to handle shorter or longer containers (where regulations allow). This innovative “trombone” function makes it easier and safer for drivers to navigate difficult areas when carrying a single 20’ container – yet it can expand to carry larger containers or 2 x 20’ containers when required.

Features:

  • 45-tonne lifting capacity.
  • 3.9 m outreach.
  • Handles 20′, 40′ and 2×20′ containers.
  • Options include trombone 20’ to 40’ or 20′ to 45’ positions.
  • Load and unload the container from the ground, double stack and trailer or rail wagon transfers.
  • Lowline cranes to minimise wear and tear.
  • Stable, accurate foot positioning – underneath or on deck of companion vehicle.
  • Dual speed proportional control allows for controlled, fast and precise container placement.

The SB450 20’ Compact Sidelifter is ideal for tight situations or difficult to negotiate areas.

Its shortened chassis length makes delivery to small yards easy. Built to accommodate just one 20′ container, the SB450 20′ Compact Sidelifter offers superb manoeuvrability making it our recommended choice for situations where access is challenging and the 20′ container is dominant.

Features:

  • 45-tonne lifting capacity.
  • 3.9 m outreach.
  • Handles 20’containers.
  • Load and unload the container from the ground, double stack and trailer or rail wagon transfers.
  • Lowline cranes to minimise wear and tear.
  • Stable, accurate foot positioning – underneath or on deck of companion vehicle.
  • Dual speed proportional control allows for controlled, fast and precise container placement.

    We found that the unit reduced operating times and is easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces like the pits where a conventional crane often has limitations of both space and weight.

  • Hexagon reaches haulage ‘highs’ in East Malaysia
    19 Feb 2020

    Hexagon Highs is one of the East Malaysia’s leading logistics and freight companies. When Hexagon recently decided to beef up its operations and invest in more sidelifter equipment, they were keen to partner with the best possible supplier. The enduring quality and durability of their two older Steelbro Mark 6 sidelifters, led Hexagon to confidently invest in five more Steelbro sidelifters to add to its growing fleet.
