Turn Your Forklift Into A Heavy Container Handling Machine
With the fully automated C-Lift X Series, all you need is a light forklift to transfer the heaviest containers between a chassis and the ground. By using a forklift to set up, the process is fast, safe and easy, with just one operator and no physical effort required.
The X Series occupies a small 4m2 | 40 ft2 storage footprint. It is compatible with both standard and high cube containers, and the footplates are designed so you can handle containers on rough, loose and uneven surfaces.

C-Lift X Series
Compact Storage Footprint
The four jacks stand upright and occupy less than 4m2 or 40 square feet of floor space in your yard, factory or warehouse. Multiple forklift pockets allow the jacks to be handled, attached and removed from the rear or the sides.
Runs off single-phase power supply
The X Series runs off 207 - 240 VAC, single-phase, 50 - 60 Hz power supply, drawing 32 Amps. Typical power sources are your mains supply or a portable generator. Electric cables daisy chain around three sides of the container and connect to the power packs on each jack.
Height Adjustable for High Cube Containers
The X Series works with all ISO container heights and lengths. The top bracket is height adjustable for fitting to standard containers and high cubes.
Lift capacity of 40 tonne | 88,000 lbs
Each X Series leg has a working load limit of 10,000 kg or 22,000 lbs, giving you a total working load limit of 40 tonne.
Self levelling control system
Onboard sensors control the pumps and motors, keeping the container level and each leg synchronized. The default mode is self-leveling, however, the operator can select and control individual legs, or groups of legs, if required.
Works on uneven ground
An articulating footplate gives the X Series a stable base for lifting containers on rough, loose and uneven surfaces.
C-Lift X Series
A wireless handheld remote control allows the operator to move freely, monitor each lift, and remain a safe distance from the elevated container.
An emergency stop button on the remote will stop the X Series on demand. A second hardwired emergency stop button sits on the ground, a safe distance from the elevated container.
Hydraulic counterbalance valves
Hydraulic counterbalance valves ensure the container will stay elevated in the event of an unexpected power outage or hydraulic failure.
Safety rated control system
A safety-rated control system, with dual-channel redundancy, controls the pumps and motors, keeping the container level and each leg synchronized.
British Design Standard
The C-Lift A Series is CE compliant and designed in accordance with BS EN 1494:2000+A1:2008, the British Standard for mobile or moveable jacks.
