Versatile Semi-Trailers Are Handled By Fork Lifts —Literature Available

Lift-Loaders are a unique family of fork-lift t r u c k operated semi-trailers. They are engaged by a fork lift in a matter of seconds and become very maneuverable truck-trailer combinations.

Each Lift-Loader can be used as a conventional trailer or as a self-loading and unloading trailer.

The uniqueness of the Lift-Loader is based on its capability to load and unload itself when used in conjunction with simple trestles, stands, loading tables, or other fixtures.

The Lift-Loader series consists of 18 models with load-carrying capacities ranging from 5 to 330 tons. In most circumstances, these trailers can extend the normal load-handling capacity of a standard fork-lift truck by a factor of 10 or more.

Their versatility enables them to be effectively utilized for general and specific purpose handling assignments as well as for transporting any type of load, ranging from palletized goods to complete ship sections.

Originally developed in Sweden during the early 1950s by Linkopings Transportindustri AB of Linkoping, Sweden, these t r a i l e rs have proven themselves in Europe and have been widely adopted in the shipbuilding, offshore oil, steel stockholding, steel fabrication, and heavy metals industries.

Total Transportation Systems, Inc. has obtained the exclusive rights to manufacture and market the Lift-Loader series. TTS is a subsidiary of Total Transportation Systems (International) A / S of Norway, a company that has a worldwide reputation in the fields of marine and industrial material-handling technology.
