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.
Gooseneck for transport of High Cube (9′ 6″) containers is available for for S, C and D chassis. All semi-trailers can be equipped to handle 45′ containers (other sizes on request).
The HAMMAR 160 can also be equipped with an E-chassis. “E” stands for Extendable. Much like the S-chassis it has sliding cranes. The rear crane is however mounted on an extended crane base section, specially designed for carrying 45′ containers. It allows the crane to slide past the rear end of the fixed trailer frame, positioning the rear crane in 45′ mode.
