Superior Safety & Ease of Operation

Safety is of paramount importance for Combilift when designing all its handling solutions and the Combi-SC is no exception. Its optimum centre of gravity, broad wheelbase and exceptional 3-wheel manoeuvrability mean maximum load stability.

The centrally located, ground accessible cabin is designed for operator safety and comfort with 360° visibility from the cab meaning they can transport loads in confidence.

The user interface is intuitive and all functions can be carried out from within the cab reducing the need for operatives to work at height, which ensures the highest levels of operator safety and productivity.

Faster turnaround

The Combi-SC offers unbeatable turnaround speed with safe stuffing/de-stuffing at ground level. It can lift, transport and set down 20’, 30’, 40’ and 45’ high cube containers, reefer and flat rack containers.

360˚ visibility from the driver position and 2 minute off-loading from trailer to ground mean faster loading times without the need for trailers waiting to be loaded.

Lighter Footprint

The Combi-SC’s much lighter unladen weight, at only 17 tonne compared to comparable heavy duty forklifts which can reach 80 tonne, makes it extremely fuel efficient.

The low service weight and large puncture proof flotation tires greatly reduce ground pressure, enabling operation on poor and semi-rough terrain, avoiding the need for costly investment on ground resurfacing or improvement.

SOLAS Compliant Weight Measurement System

Combilift has responded to the new SOLAS Regulations which came into force from 1st July 2016, by offering a fully compliant weight measurement system on the Straddle Carrier.

The regulations mean that the Verified Gross Mass (VGM) documentation will be required prior to loading cargo onto ships.

The new system allows the Straddle Carrier to weigh loads once, in real-time, to an accuracy of +/-1% effectively making it a mobile weighing system.

This system is much more efficient than a weighing bridge which must weigh the load multiple times, measuring the same tractor unit with load and without.
