RAM6900 – Hydraulic Twin Lift Spreader

STS Spreader

The 2nd Generation of our successful 2900 series telescopic separating twin lift spreader series is here. The RAM 6900 telescopic twin lift spreader with “CentreSpread” is the ideal choice for heavy-duty STS container handling operations and is also a “Tandem Operation Ready” spreader, for those wishing to handle multiple containers using the RAM SingFlex Headblock.

Our latest bespoke separating twin lift ship to shore container spreader series incorporates the latest in spreader design and technological advancements.

With a clever balance of increasing structural strength where needed, and reducing the number of components by 10% with the new telescopic twin lift design, plus longer flipper gathering distance, lower spreader height and reduced power consumption, this 2nd generation spreader certainly delivers high performance for twin lift STS container handling.

The spreader is ideal for both traditional and automated terminals. It is also the perfect spreader (Model No: 6940) capable of matching the high-performance needed for tandem lift operations with RAM SingFlex for multiple container handling.

The RAM 6900 series is designed to EN13001 and are suitable for the latest high-speed ship to shore cranes.

With improved telescopic speeds between 20’ – 40’ – 45’, the 2nd generation spreader is also capable of gap adjustments of up to 1600mmm between two 20’ containers. Positioning sensors detect gaps of 0mm, 76mm and 1600mm, with linear transducers adjusting the gap automatically to any position between 0mm and 1600mm.
