NEW AND USED SIDE LOADERS : SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS AND CHOICE STRATEGIES.
A side loader is a kind of material handling equipment, a group of loaders with the lateral placement of masts of the loading mechanism.
The term "side loaders" refers a group of machines which are fundamentally different, but united by a common structural feature – lateral placement of the hoisting mechanism. This means that the masts and pallet forks are oriented perpendicular to the axis of movement of the vehicle (unlike the other types of loaders, whose forks are oriented along this axis). The loading platform is equipped in one plane with the pallet fork.
When it comes to the other features, the side loaders can vary greatly. They can have significantly different dimensions, as well as the maximum load capacity. Depending on the specific model, the power unit of these machines may be based either on an internal combustion engine or on an electric motor.
Specific construction of the side loader is designed to make it easier to work with long cargoes (lumber, pipes, rolls, sheet metal, etc.), and to transport them more conveniently within the area of a warehouse, in particular – in the aisles between the shelves or stacks, as well as on the rather narrow sections of driveways.
