Following the launch of five new models during its 25th anniversary year in 2023, Irish materials handling specialist Combilift has unveiled another innovation. The Combi-CLL (Container Log-Loader) recently made its debut at EXPO Richmond 2024, one of America’s premier trade shows for the forest products industry.

The concept and operation of the Combi-CLL is based on that of the Combi-CSS (Container Slip Sheet), which has been successfully deployed across numerous industries for the mechanised loading of long products such as packs of timber or steel into containers. This not only reduces the risk of accidents to the workforce and product damage but is incredibly fast compared to other methods – a 40’ container can be fully loaded by one operator in under 6 minutes.

The Combi-CLL Log Loader is revolutionising the process of handling and loading logs into containers. Prioritising speed, efficiency, and safety, this innovative machine is specifically designed to meet the complex demands of the forestry industry. With its state-of-the-art technology, the Combi-CLL is setting new standards and making a significant impact.

Efficiency and Product Integrity

The 30t capacity electro-hydraulically powered Combi-CLL offers the same benefits when it comes to speed and product integrity. It was designed to address the requirements of exporters of softwood and hardwood logs, the nature and shape of which make them much trickier to handle than palletised or packed product.

Innovative Handling

Logs can be individually lifted and pre-loaded into a robust, high-sided metal “tub” before the patented push-pull mechanism powers the tub into the container. Once inside, the hydraulic dropdown hatch is closed and locked into position to hold the logs securely in place, and the tub is retracted to allow the logs to settle within the container.

Once again, Combilift has come up with a customer-led solution that also has potential for applications beyond the forestry and timber industries.
