Timars HCL

Container spreader

Timars HCL is a rigid rectangular framed container spreader for handling ISO certified containers. The spreader has been designed to cope in extremely tough conditions.

Timars HCL has semi-automatic operation, however the spreader can also be operated manually using the pre-installed handles. Operation of the spreader is based on the ′gravity and lift′ principle, locking and unlocking of the twistlocks is made by the lowering and lifting of the spreader by the crane operator. The spreader is available to suit 10ft, 20ft, 30ft & 40ft ISO containers. HCL spreaders are available with 35t and 40t lifting capacities.


The spreader is equipped with robust guide arms to assist with locating the spreader on top of the container, The spreader is also equipped with lower lifting eyes for extension chains that provide the same lifting capacity as the main spreader.

The main slings consist of 2 x 2 part wire rope slings for attaching to the crane hook. Chain slings are an available option if requested.


The mechanical locking system provides simple yet failsafe operation, leading to very low downtime for maintenance and servicing.


Timars HCL spreaders can also be equipped with Timars Gravity Centraliser for safe handling of unevenly loaded containers.All spreaders are CE marked and supplied with certificates of load testing. All spreaders are fully inspected in line with Timars quality control requirements prior to delivery.
