The Bromma TLF40 is a telescopic spreader designed to handle single 20´ and 40´ containers for masted lift trucks equipped with standard or inverted forks.


The spreader is designed with fork pockets to fit standard or inverted forks. It is latched onto the heels of the forks by pivot arms secured with pins.
The TLF40 is equipped with slew, telescopic, reach mechanical pile slope and floating twistlock functions that allows it to easily locate containers. Additional tilt and side shift are provided by the fork lift truck.

All spreader movements are controlled with 24V proportional valves, providing precise and smooth operation.
The spreader is operated from the driver’s cab over serial communication (CANopen) or parallel wiring. Commands are processed by an Electronic Control Unit on the spreader with built in safety logics for container handling.

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.
