YTS45E is an all-electric twin-lift yard crane spreader. With this spreader a larger percentage of above-deck containers can be transported in twinlift mode.

Possible container combinations: 20´, 30´, 40´, 45´, 2×20´

The twinlift spreader can move two 20´containers from a spacing of 0 to 1.6 meters (0 to 5 foot) under full load while suspended under the twistlocks. Two containers can be moved synchronized towards one another and apart from one another. The movements can be done at any time in the crane cycle and are mechanically controlled to be symmetrical. There is no stopping time to change the container spacing. The telescopic spreader YTS45E is of rectangular frame construction enabling easy location on containers. The spreader is as standard equipped with 4 x10 metric tons lifting lugs in the corners of the end beams for heavy lifts and for handling damaged containers.

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.

Major Features

These are all-electric spreaders and they will help ports make additional strides toward “greener” operations. As all Bromma all-electric spreaders they have clear operating advantages:


  • Light
  • Quiet
  • More energy efficient – as much as 85% lower spreader energy consumption
  • Fast, easy and less costly than many other spreaders to service
  • Low service materials cost (for oil and filters)
  • Reduced scheduled service time, thereby increased spreader uptime
  • Reduced un-scheduled service time, due to the elimination of many of the “nuisance” downtime events that occur due to spreader hydraulics (bad hose connections, etc.)
  • Eliminate the clean-up costs associated with oil spills
  • Two 20’ containers can be moved apart from 0 to 1,600 mm (0’–5’) under full load.
  • Fulfils the design criteria of EN13001, DIN 15018 H2B4, FEM 1.001 and British Standard BS 2573


Lifting capacity (SWL)

  • 51 metric tons evenly loaded
  • 51 metric tons ±10% eccentric loading
