Ever since 1976, Taylor Machine Works has built, engineered and marketed empty container handlers. The "Big Red" line of empty handlers reflects the knowledge and experience gained during those years. The Taylor empty handlers are known as "All American" units because they are designed and manufactured within the USA. Taylor is consistently on the cutting edge of industrial technology. The corporation strives to maintain their devotion of designing and building the most dependable, most productive and best container handling machines around, anywhere in the world.
The company's empty container handlers are outfitted with a huge range of masts and attachments so as to better meet your specific requirements. The following is a list of models with their basic mast and attachment.
The TECDS-150H Attachment expands in order to top pick 20 feet throughout 53 feet empty reefer containers and empty ISO standard containers. Any containers measuring over 40 feet should have standard 40 feet ISO pickup points. The attachment has 4 corner twist-locks as well, electrical signal lights in the cab, 2 work lights and hydraulic slewing.
The ELME attachment is engineered to handle 2 20 foot or 40 foot empty ISO standard containers simultaneously. This simultaneous ability can be done with the containers stacked on top of each other. Also, this type of attachment is available with 4 horizontal twist-locks which insert into the side apertures of the upper containers bottom corner castings and the lower container's top corner castings. The extremely specialized design of the twist-locks enables block stacking to be carried out.
