The maximum steering angle of the wheels with mounted tow bar is 45 degrees, relative to the container. The turning radius with the WingLift mounted on a 6 meter container is about 10 meters with the rear corner units locked.
To reduce the radius, the rear wheels can be unlocked and gently guided by hand. To steer the rear corner units by hand (2 people) need a smooth surface (concrete, asphalt) as well as using caution and awareness!
Always try to keep as large a radius as possible. Always have the wheels moving when adjusting the wheel angle.
The WingLift can move a container in any direction with only manpower rotating it 360 degrees around its own axel.
The WingLift is the perfect cargo transport choice to use in tight spaces with low ceilings where a crane is impossible, like shelters because of its compact size and 360 degree turning capability. Additionally, You can pull it forward / backward and rotate it or slide it laterally in all directions.
Handling and towing the WingLift is always limited by the capacity of the towing vehicle as well as the length of the container and WingLift’s lifting height.
The load bearing capacity is essential. The ground must bear the pressure of the wheels and there is a risk that the wheels and the crew will slip.
The speed and weight depend on the load and road conditions. For the WingLift you can choose between two models of wheels – Solid and Pneumatic up to 12 km/h. If the weight is more than 12 tons, the maximum speed is 6 km/h regardless of wheel type.
It is dependent on the smoothness of the ground. If two diagonal corner units are in contact with the ground, the system can operate.
Yes, if any of the lower ISO holes or corners of the container are damaged, transportation is restricted.
Distance depends on load, distance and terrain surface. At maximum load, the tires on the WingLift can become overheated with long distance transportation.
The lift as such works to -20 ° Celsius degrees. Ice and slippery surface works in the same way as for any vehicle that has tires.
Wheel replacement depends on the container load and surface and road condition as well the travel distance. Check the tires’ condition each month for wear, cracks or bad condition of the rubber.
No, but watch out for deep water puddles. Otherwise no problem, there is a rough pattern on the tire and the speed should be low.
The W40-S is standard. The W40-H is specially made for narrow spaces with the H standing for Hercules.
Yes, we are always happy to discuss the sale of WingLift rented or hired, all prices will be subject to the used WingLift market at that time, the condition of the container and transport cost implications.
Lift height depends on the model, WingLift standard models allow lifting heights of either 0.35m, 0.50m or in special cases 0.75m.
To maintain a robust and reliable construction, we have chosen to use stopblocks.
WingLift can be operated on any hard surface, asphalt or concrete roads. Take into account current legislation!
Most all containers built are outfitted with ISO specification corners, of which Winglift is designed to be fitted with.
