STRADDLE V. SIDELIFT--ROOM FOR ALL IN TERMINAL OPERATIONS

The choice of the correct type of equipment for a particular operation depends on the ability to segregate those types of specialist equipment which are in direct competition and then to assess the pros and cons of each competitor. Modern container handlers fall conveniently into three basic divisions. Straddle carriers and sidelifts, rail mounted and wheeled gantry cranes, and frontlift trucks. These are discussed and compared. Order from NSFI as No. 16700.
