Taylor Group Inc., The: Intermodal Lifting Equipment

Taylor Group Inc., The

The Taylor Big Red line of intermodal equipment includes side-loading-type containers for handling laden and empty containers, reach stackers, rubber tired gantry cranes, ro-ro trucks, and loaded trailer/container handlers. Taylor TITAN series reach stackers are ideal for container handling jobs with height and approach angle restrictions, second row or rail requirements and a need for more longitudinal stability. TITAN reach stackers offer increased duty cycles and eliminate the need for jacks that cause damage to yard surfaces, the company says. Taylor rubber-tired gantry cranes have increased lift capacities because structure and lift systems were designed to accommodate off-center loads. The attachment handles trailers and containers with twistlocks or lifting legs by providing top-pick and bottom-pick functions.
