Recieve a ThorStacker in 20ft Containers!

September 18, 2012

What does Thor Global do when there’s trouble getting machines to remote locations? They go out of their way to adapt to customer needs and fill a few small 20ft containers with a big Thor Global surprise!

A gold mine located in the remote interior of Africa has expressed a need for ThorStacker technology. However, due to tight winding roads of poor quality, there are considerable weight and size restrictions for transport – ie. A maximum total weight of 16,575 lbs (7500 kg) - which includes the weight of the 5280 lbs (2400 kg) container itself (also restricted to 20ft in length)!

Thor Global Engineers have diligently modified the design of their standard T140x36-0500S (approximately 87ft long and 11ft -7in wide fully-assembled), to fit all components within 20ft sea containers.

Once the containers arrive on site, the customer unloads, aligns and assembles the conveyor as specified. Don’t think that the customer is left hanging on their own when it comes to site assembly. In addition to precise documented instructions, Thor Global pre-mounts all powertrain items, idlers and tires for quick and easy on site assembly. If requested, Thor Global can easily arrange for a certified technician to oversee the assembly. This new development allows customers in remote areas to purchase large ThorStacker machines and bring them on site without worrying about paved highways or special transport permits.

Humble kudos to Thor Global’s Engineering prowess!
