Port Chalmers Straddles

We had a great day and a half berthed at Port Chamlers, with awesome views over the container terminal.  The port is run primarily with manned Kalmar straddles and a few forklifts.  The straddles run most of the boxes to and from the stacks to under the quayside gantry cranes.

I observed over a dozen straddles running around, with both 9 and 12 metre high varieties.   Numbers 22-28 appear to be CSC 350 models (9m), 29-32 appear to be CSC 450 models (12m), 35 and 36 were diesel-electric ESC 350 models, and 37 was an ESC 450 model.  

Enjoy the shots!
