1.As containers come in different lengths and weights, the cranes can slide along the trailer chassis to move to the best location for lifting, and so that they place the container in the optimum position for the best weight distribution.

2.The 40ft side loader container extends and places outriggers on either side of the container to prevent the trailer from tipping. Once the outriggers are fully extended, the driver is ready to connect the chains.

3.This leg is fully extended. You can see the danger area for the lift zone marked on the leg. The chains are connected to the bottom corners of the container using the fixings. Once the lifting starts, it’s important that the driver stays well clear of the lifting zone.

4.The driver positions the 40ft side loader container next to the container. The power to the side loader is provided by the PTO or power take off.

During operation, do not retract stabilizers.

3.During lifting, make sure the lifter act smoothly and steady, if the container swing being lifted because of abrupt operation, stop the operation at once, restart the operation after quieting down

4.During operation of loading and unloading of the side loader container, if you have not a clear view in foreside, stop operation to check, do not operate blindly.
