Additionally, K.SHG L offers a user-friendly operation when switching between 40 ft and 45 ft containers with the design that allows switching the positioning of front container locks that eliminates the need for an extendable gooseneck.

This Multifunctional Container Chassis with unique octagonal central frame design enables all welded components of the chassis to reduce all ancillary tension issues making the entire chassis almost tension free, preventing permanent damage arising from regular operations that are carried out with the industry standard rectangular central frame design. Front, middle and rear extensions and specially designed locking mechanisms provide the most user-friendly operation.
