Sideloader trailer is a specialised vehicle used to loading and unloading ISO standard intermodal containers over longer distances.
As the sideloader trailer is suitable for travelling on general roads for large distances and able to quickly load and unload without additional equipment, it is often used for delivering and picking up shipping containers from within a commercial district. Although these can self load, they are more often loaded or unloaded at the port with a straddle carrier or reach stacker.
Designs and Details of Sideloader Trailer-45 Ton 40ft Sideloader Trailer for Sale in Madagascar
1. Sideloader trailer-type
The traditional container slide rail elevator is a typical in-line model with stabilizer legs in-line and a boom installed. Other models have a double-sided loader and a dagger leg or leg stabilizer.
The container side jacks can also be classified according to the design of the chassis, for example:
Lattice chassis-this is the original design, very unique in nature. This is the most preferred standard design type. It has a low tare weight and high strength.
I-beam chassis-designed to provide customers with another optional chassis benchmark. Therefore, customers can choose this type according to their own needs and comparison with other products.

The side lifter consists of the following functions:
Cranes-also called crane modules. These are hydraulic cranes that can lift cargo/containers from the ground, another vehicle, a loading dock, a railway wagon, or any other platform listed above from the top of a container placed on the ground. Can be lifted on the chassis and on the chassis. The crane is usually located on the top of the Sidelifter chassis and can usually move along a chassis that is moved by hydraulic motors or hydraulic cylinders to load containers and cargo of different lengths.
Drive power unit-Generally, cranes are powered by diesel or gasoline engines mounted on trailers. However, it is also possible to power the crane through the PTO shaft of a tractor or truck.
Stabilize the legs. These are hydraulic outriggers used to lift a fully loaded shipping container while keeping the vehicle in place. They prevent the vehicle from tilting. The stabilizing feet can be adjusted to help operate on uneven ground and increase safety and load limit margins when stacking containers. When lifting a container in a narrow location (such as a trailer deck), the outriggers can be extended and tilted to provide additional functions.
Chain. During the lifting operation, chains are installed on the corner castings from the upper part of the crane to the bottom of the container. There is a special connecting device, when placed between 20-foot containers, the user can lock two 20ft containers together. In this way, the side jacks can haul them like a 40ft container.
Cab/Tractor-This is used to pull the trailer. In some cases, it is powered by PTO. This accessory also provides compressed air for the brakes in the wheels of the side lifter. Generally, if the side lifter trailer is not connected to the tractor, it cannot be operated. This is so because even if the power pack is carried by the side lifter, the tractor provides much-needed compressed air for the trailer brake and provides extra stability during the lifting operation.
Chassis-The chassis is an important structure. It manages the weight of the loaded cargo/container. Not only that, it also supports cranes.
Remote control-This is a device operated by buttons and joysticks, basically connected by multiple pairs of wires or by radio signals. This allows the driver to move around the container and observe the unit from different angles when performing lifting operations.
3. Design of container jacks-precautions
The container sideloader trailer is designed to increase various productivity. As will be discussed extensively in this article, the main content includes fast, safe and flexible container handling operations.
Most importantly, these side-frame trailers will improve your ability to move more containers through fast and safe operations.
This is an innovative design that can increase efficiency, save time and ultimately increase productivity. The following are detailed design considerations used in the construction of the container side lifter.
Container transportation-The process of transferring containers from side lifts to flat-top or skeleton trucks is very simple. When extending the stabilizer, there is enough space for the selected trailer to return to the position under the stabilizer during the loading process. If this is not the case, once the flat top or bone trailers are placed side by side, the stabilizer can be lowered. Generally, there is a clearance of more than 300mm on each side of the transfer trailer.
There is a faster turnaround time from start to finish. Even if the side riser is already equipped with a container, the process is faster.
The load can be transferred to a 4 axle trailer connected to a4 axle tractor without having to jack up the knives of adjacent trucks and four-axle trailers.
Most importantly, for stability considerations, the lifting module does not need to place the stabilizer legs on the adjacent trailer. The sideloader trailer can handle containers up to 9'6'.
Stability-The stabilizer legs and outer arm pivot spans of the container side lifter have a large pivot span, providing fast and safe operation even under difficult settings. Due to its high stability, the side loader can lift a considerable weight of up to 45 tons of balanced containers even under undesirable conditions. The center of gravity of the container is about one meter within the stabilizer support line. This is the most stable position you will find in the market. However, there are other options to keep the container's center of mass outside the stabilizer support line. This makes the setting unstable.
Compared with other leg designs that extend downward from the lifting module in a triangular manner, the leg designs are generally praised for their greater stability.
The latter acts as a pivot point and sometimes causes the container side lifter to tip over when loading heavy containers.
Control-The container side jack can be remotely controlled using a radio remote control. A compact user friendly control device operated with one hand, consisting of a hand-held button control unit, can provide operators with safe working conditions. Using the control system, you can move the two elevator modules with one-button operation and drag the tow bar at a lower speed to achieve fast operation. However, you can control the slower speed when accurately positioning the container. You can also get a fully proportional control system with a handheld toggle remote control system that allows the operator to directly manage the direction and speed of crane movement.
Work space-the container side lifter allows you to work in limited space conditions. The initial station pass option has been specially designed and verified to prevent malfunction during loading and unloading operations in confined spaces. With this feature, you can easily place the container on the wall.
Payload carrying capacity-The range of container side lifts available on the market can provide you with side lifts that can manage huge payload capacity to complete work faster. The ultra-light chassis and lifting modules are light in weight, light in weight, light in design, and well designed to achieve this goal.
