Liebherr straddle carriers are custom built in two standard heights, 3 containers high (1 over 2) and 4 containers high (1 over 3). The straddle carriers are designed for single and twin lift operation. 8 wheels mounted on four steering axles when coupled with the superior response of the Liebherr drive and control system offers the ultimate in manoeuvrability and stability. The innovative design feature of positioning the hydraulics at low level results in a more dynamic response from the steering and braking system. Design improvements over alternative models ensure the Liebherr straddle carrier benefits from lower maintenance costs, increased fuel economies with increased productivity. The Liebherr carrier has been developed from over 40 years experience in container handling and brings new and innovative features to this market.
