The RPC Corp. has introduced the Grassshopper, a multi-purpose container spreader featuring telescoping arms to pick up trailers from the bottom of rail cars or tractors. When not used as a trailer lift, the arms stow tightly to reveal a 20- to 40-foot expandable container spreader. Designed for four-point suspension from gantry, boom or mobile crane, the unit has a working load of 88,000 pounds. RPC also offers a complete line of container spreaders, including the radio controlled Rad-Con 20-40 expandable spreader, which eliminates umbilical cords and special power hook-ups.
