How The Mobicon 2T Works

When no container is being carried, the two towers are connected by draw-bars.  When a container is handled, the back tower carries the rear of the container, and the front tower carries the front of the container.  The container then becomes part of the Mobicon Mini Straddle Carrier structure. When you invest in a Mobicon Mini Straddle Carrier you are investing in quality design, quality engineering and quality service.

Arc - The Australian Reinforcing Company
“Instead of staff working at a trailer height of 1.5 metres, they are now working at a safe 300mm off the ground. This alone was a major contributing factor for the implementation of the Mobicon to this business.”
Wade Price Distribution & Customer Service Manager, Smorgon Steel Reinforcing QLD
Toll SPD
“TOLL SPD originally acquired a Mobicon in 1999 as it was the only container handler available on the market that had the flexibility to handle all sized containers, including 48’ curtain-siders, and is designed with ideal wheel loadings suitable to our yards. ”
Kerry Quirk Operations Manager, TOLL SPD
Sadliers Logistics
“Previously our docks were capable of unloading 2 containers on 2 trailers at any one time. We can now unload 4-5 containers at the same time which spreads our labour costs and increases our productivity”
Michael Miller QLD State Manager, Sadleirs Transport
