Possible container combinations: 20´, 40´, 45´, 4×20´, 2×40´, 2×45´, 2×20´+ 1×40´, 2×20´+ 1×45´
The Tandem Quattro spreader also offers another advantage: the capability to do side shift on individual spreaders, which is useful when the chassis or containers on the ground are not fully lined up in the longitudinal direction. As the Tandem Quattro will never telescope into 20´, the main frame of the individual Tandem spreaders are longer than on a standard telescopic spreader.
The limitation on the Tandem Quattro is that it cannot lift a single 20 ´container alone. As a result, if a 20´container is positioned so that it can only be handled by itself, the Tandem Quattro will need to be changed-out for another spreader that can perform this single-lift. Due to this limitation, the Tandem Quattro is especially well-suited for container terminals that have a high percentage of 40′ and 45′ containers, and a low percentage of 20′ containers that are located in such a way that they need to be loaded/unloaded in single lift mode.
The spreader is designed in accordance with EN13001. As all Bromma spreaders it is made from European high quality steel, which ensures a light and robust design. The spreader has a user friendly design and all components are easily accessible for inspection and maintenance.
