Abstract:

This patent discloses freight container transport mechanism comprising a pair of jaw-like platforms movable toward one another by a winch-cable means to abut opposite ends of a freight container. As the platforms move toward one another certain upstanding struts on the platforms swing upwardly to raise the freight container from ground level to a transport position supported between the platforms.
