”A” stands for Advanced. An extremely short, solid and flexible chassis for 20’-40’ (45' as option) containers. A telescopic chassis with “adjustable” King Pin pressure; i.e. chassis and cranes can be adjusted to fit both 2- and 3-axle tractor trucks. Available as non-stacking (160 A) or stacking, with extra stabilisers for safe stacking operations (160 HA).
The HAMMAR 160-Series is a new generation of the well proven SL 30, our very first sideloader model built in 1974. It was the first sideloader in the world to have a lifting capacity of 33 tonnes SWL as standard and is one of our most popular models.
The 160-series has an outstandingly simple and light construction, making it the world’s lightest heavy duty sideloader. Though not as flexible for transferring as the 150 or 190 series, it’s a perfect choice for ground-to-ground lifting and high payloads. With it’s high lifting capacity of 36 tonnes it can quick and easily handle fully loaded containers.
