The name SWINGLIFT refers to our brand, however like all good inventions the name has become generic and today other container side loader manufacturers also refer to their side loaders; side lifters; container lifters; and swinglifters as “Swinglifts”
The first Swinglift was designed in the early 1970’s by a typical innovative New Zealand engineer, Swinglift has been building and supplying container side loaders into the Australasian and world market for 33 years.
In November2004 Patchell Industries Ltd a Rotorua trailer manufacturer in New Zealand purchased the Swinglift product from the original designer. Patchell now build the Swinglift product in their Rotorua factories and apply production methods well proven on their log transport and container transport trailer products.
Discerning operators who look for a container side loader with the most stability while loading heavy containers with ease and speed, from either trucks or trailers or rail wagons inevitably choose a Swinglift. High stability and superior design features give Swinglift fast and safe operation even under difficult conditions.
The ideal sideloader to increase the productivity of any business whether they be a large container carrying organization or an owner operator with only one Swinglift.
