VDL Fully Electric Spreaders

  • CH6450E
The VDL electric seriess are crane spreaders designed to handle 20-40ft / 20-40-45ft ISO containers. The double girder design is structurally based on the VDL ship-to-shore crane spreaders and is made out of high-quality steel in order to reduce the weight of the spreader.
The robust and reliable telescopic system consists of two electric motors (both 2,2 kW) powering two timing belts, equipped with shock absorption through spring washer packages. The twistlocks system works with one electrical
motor (0,37 kW) per end beam which powers a rotating system. This system is connected with the different “quick exchange floating twistlocks“ by a bar. Flippers are moved by one 1,1 kW electro motor per flipper which powers a
transmission. Between the motor and the transmission a clutch is installed which will open in case of high external pressure. 
VDL Electric Spreaders are available as single-, twin- and separating twin-lift version. The series are available with several options and different guides/flippers combinations.
