Kocks has developed its Digger, exclusively for bulk cargo
handling (coal and other raw materials) and has been
optimized over the course of many decades. It is a shiploader
with excellent performance.
Intelligent co-ordination of the main and auxiliary trolleys
using a pre-tensioned rope crane is typical for this crane, and
results in handling rates of 3,000tph (tonnes per hour) and
