The sideloader, also described as sidelifter, has been introduced in the late 1960s. The German manufacturer Klaus manufactures trailers with sideloading installation, primarily for military use. The concept has not changed ever since: 2 cranes, one in the front another at the end of the trailer, can lift and drop a loaded ISO container independently.
Soon after the introduction many other manufacturers have joined the market place, producing and selling sideloaders. Over the last 10 years the sideloader market has been stabilized. From a supply side the market has been dominated by two manufacturers.
Beltruck bv has a long history in service, maintenance and overhaul of sideloaders from various manufacturers. Since 2008 we are also selling new sideloaders. Based on our experience with various sideloader systems and clients, we have been able to deliver improvements along the way. Technical changes delivering improved endurance and introduction of additional functions adds value for the clients.
Today we are proud to say we are “the sideloader specialists”. Our passion is to improve the sideloader concept with the new developments that clients need.
