Handle Heavy Containers

C-Lift X Series

  • Compact Storage Footprint
    2000 X40 865x487 TG Shoot

    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
    2001 X40 865x487 TG Shoot

    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
    2005 X40 865x487 TG Shoot

    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
    2015 x40 865x487 TG Shoot

    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
    2002 X40 865x487 TG Shoot

    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.

  • Wireless remote
    2013 x40 865x487 TG Shoot

    A wireless handheld remote control allows the operator to move freely, monitor each lift, and remain a safe distance from the elevated container.

  • Emergency stops
    2020 x40 865x487 TG Shoot

    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
    2009 X40 865x487 TG Shoot

    Hydraulic counterbalance valves ensure the container will stay elevated in the event of an unexpected power outage or hydraulic failure.

  • Safety rated control system
    2019 x40 865x487 TG Shoot

    A safety-rated control system, with dual-channel redundancy, controls the pumps and motors, keeping the container level and each leg synchronized.
