Combilift’s new Combi-CSS is a free-standing, electric-powered, semi-automated machine for loading and unloading of 20-ft., 40-ft., and 53-ft. containers transporting lumber and panel products. 

It has a container-chassis docking system and a bi-direction, horizontally moving Hardox Steel Slip-Sheet with a capacity of 65,000 lbs.

To load, the container-chassis docks to the CSS and the pre-loaded slip-sheet powers into the container. With the load inside the container, a gate closes across the doorway, securing the load until the slip-sheet retracts. To unload, the container-chassis docks to the CSS, and the slip-sheet power-glides under the load into the container. 

With a single operator, it enables cycle times of six minutes with greater safety and less product handling, lift-truck use, and product damage.
