Container handler maker Mobicon
has added a low-profile straddle carrier designed to stack containers two high and to travel under awnings and through low door openings.
Jesse Schultz, Mobicon general manager, says the new model uses hydraulic lifting only, and avoids the use of potentially dangerous and unsafe wire ropes and sheaves, "making the Mobicon extremely low maintenance and safe".
The low-profile unit has a top-lifting spreader, either 20/40 telescopic or a fixed 20 ft. or 40 ft. spreader, making container handling fast and efficient.
"Most of our clients do not have a dedicated operator for the Mobicon
, as typically the unit is used intermittently. Therefore, it is important to have a straddle carrier that is easy to operate. In Australia and most other countries, there is no license required to operate a Mobicon," he adds.
The first and second units have been tested and delivered to a client in Australia who is extremely satisfied with its performance, according to Schultz.
"We are proud to have received several orders for this new unit, proving that the design and value is recognised by our clients," Schultz notes.
