Timars HCA

Container spreader

The Timars HCA is a fixed frame container spreader for handling ISO certified containers.

Operation of the spreader is based on the ’gravity and lift’ principle, locking and unlocking of the twistlocks is made by the lowering and lifting of the spreader by the crane operator. The spreader is available to suit 20ft & 40ft ISO containers. HCA spreaders are available from 32t up to 36t lifting capacities.


The HCA spreader is aimed at operators with lower levels of container handling requirements, This spreader intentionally remains basic with minimal features. Each HCA – spreader is delivered ready for assembly. Supplying the frame in this unassembled state provides considerable cost saving in freight. The frame is easily assembled in less than 1 hour. Once assembled the frame is ready for immediate use.

The main slings consist of 2 x 2 part wire rope slings for attaching to the crane hook.


All spreaders are CE marked and supplied with certificates of load testing. All spreaders are fully inspected in line with Timars quality control requirements prior to delivery.The mechanical locking system provides simple yet failsafe operation, leading to very low downtime for maintenance and servicing.


Timars HCA spreaders can also be equipped with Timars Gravity Centraliser for safe handling of unevenly loaded containers.
