Straddle carrier (Mobile Container Crane)
A straddle carrier is a non road going vehicle for use in port terminals and intermodal yards used for stacking and moving ISO standard containers. Straddles pick and carry containers while straddling their load and connecting to the top lifting points via a container spreader. These machines have the ability to stack containers up to 4 high. These are capable of relatively low speeds (up to 30 km/h) with a laden container. The workers that use this machinery sit at the very top seated facing the middle as they can see behind them and in front of them. Straddle carriers can lift up to 60 tons which equals up to 2 full containers.
About this creation
I consider them as the most ugly vehicle's ever (not counting VW), but also one of the coolest. I wanted to make one for a very long time, but I thought it would be to hard, so I finished it in 3 hours.

Also, this is the first crane for a long time. This one is handeling a FEU (Fourty Feet Equivalent Unit, a 12 meter container).

















Loading a truck.



My entire port crew till date ( Container stacker , Terminal tractor , Unmanned Guided Container Transporter and Container Truck ), I wonder when my ship comes in.



I hope you like it and feel free to leave a comment.
