VDL Ship to Shore Spreaders (CH6550)

The VDL CH6550 series are quayside crane spreaders designed to handle 20-40FT / 20-40-45FT ISO containers.  The double girder design is structurally well proven and fully dediced to ship to shore applications.
The robust and reliable telescoping system consists of 3-point mounted hydraulic cylinders, impact protected with spring washer packages and hydraulic relief valves. The twistlock- beams are equipped with the quick exchange floating
twistlocks system. The standard spreaders are hydraulically powered by the twin motor/pump power pack, mounted on heavy duty shock absorbers. The VDL CH6550 Long Twin is the dedicated separating twin-lift version of the ship to shore spreader range. Both series are standard equipped with high torque single cylinder actuated corner flippers and are available with several options.
All VDL spreaders are protected with a unique thermosetting powder surface coating. The environment-friendly process (no solvent, no air pollution) provides maximum corrosion resistance and surface hardness and, above all, an outstanding appearance.
