Meclift ML1812R

Meclift™ ML1812R is a unique multipurpose machine.

It is the only machine in the lifting capacity range of 18 tons, which can be operated inside containers. It moves swiftly in confined spaces, such as warehouses and cargo vessels. In addition to heavy cargo lifting, ML1812R is perfect for practically any other material handling needs. Different kinds of Meclift attachments increase opportunities for using one machine for multiple purposes. It lifts 20-feet containers from fork pockets and stacks them up to 3-high. A hydraulically movable cabin ensures excellent visibility even when handling bulky objects. ML1812R is an environmentally friendly solution.

Less work machinery on your yard means less fuel consumed. It also means more open space and better visibility, resulting in improved safety and less damage to your cargo. ML1812R is easy to transport in a 20-feet container or on a swap body vehicle. It is designed to operate reliably in demanding conditions. Supported by worldwide-known components and easily accessible spare parts, ML1812R is a secure choice.

“We use two Meclift ML1812R machines for loading and unloading steel coils into and out of containers in our port. These machines are very unique in design. Thanks to their low height and good reaching ability we are able to use them in other jobs as well. Sometimes we wonder how some of these jobs could be done without the Meclift trucks.”
