“Swinglift® side loader,
“Swinglift® has a long history of continuous improvements dating back to the 1960s, resulting in leading the market with an innovative range of side loaders now available from Swinglift® today”
A decade has passed since the Swinglift product joined the Patchell catalogue of specialised equipment, including log transport trailers, food-grade stainless steel tankers, drop decks and skeletal trailers. But the long and successful Swinglift story goes back much further than that.
In 2005 Patchell Industries Ltd obtained the Intellectual Property for the manufacture of Swinglift® container side loaders from the original designer. The manufacturing of Swinglift® products was them moved to Rotorua, New Zealand.
Patchell Industries were able to apply production methods well proven on their log and container transport trailers, now building a wide range of Swinglift® side loaders in their Rotorua, New Zealand factories.
Swinglift Australia Pty Ltd was formed in 2007. Since its establishment, Australia wide Swinglift® has become the preferred container side loader choice for several large transport companies.
Since 2005 Swinglift® have continued to grow, with the benefit of now having an in-house design team, Swinglift® has a range of container handling/transportation solutions with superior stability and safety features.
Adding to the original HC4020 Swinglift model, we now offer solutions that include truck or trailer mounted, fixed 20’ model with added stability of the Leg-Over® design, a 3-arm Trilifter for light or empty containers, demountable options, double stacking and the Dual Carriage models with either the original Leg-Over® or Dagger leg option to provide customers with an alternative to competitor offerings.
The Patchell Group continue to make safety in operation the guiding factor of all its designs. The research and development work completed in-house applies across the range of equipment it manufactures.
An example of this is how Patchell’s in-house finite element analysis can result in greater inherent strength, without additional weight through the use of high-tensile steels during the fabrication process.
Swinglift has formed partnerships around the world to provide ongoing service and support.
