rather the newest edition to the NSS cargo handling fleet. The Cascade Tyre Handler, valued at $200,000, represents NSS's confidence in the future of tyre imports through Townsville, improving productivity and introducing a new level of cargo care. NSS unloads imported tyres for Bridgestone at the Port of Townsville which are destined for use in the mining and earthmoving industries.
Capable of lifting 8.5 tonnes the tyre handler can be used in any application requiring the need to handle off-the-road (OTR) tyres. The ability to rotate, tip and side-shift the tyre provides the flexibility needed for alignment with the truck without the use of a second forklift. The clamp attachment ensures the tyre is handled with exceptional cargo care, eliminating the risk of damage to both the tyre and the truck. This also ensures better safety for terminal workers through superior visibility through and over the frame.
With its 360-degree continuous rotation, the precision with which the NSS machinery operator can place the tyre maximizes trailer space at the same time as ensuring cargo placement and weight distribution on the truck is exact.
