Cargotec subsidiary Hiab has announced a new truck-mounted forklift and new tail lifts as part of its display at the upcoming IAA exhibition in Hannover, Germany.

The first of the new products, the Moffett M4NX, is the latest generation of the M4 range which "has been made even better with a focus of added safety, easier servicing and more comfort to the operator," Truck Mounted Forklifts project manager Michael O'Reilly says.

"By making the M4NX as light as possible without affecting our reputation for having durable quality products, we ensure that the operators benefit by getting maximum payload on their vehicle.

"The M4NX can effectively carry more than its own unladen weight - like an ant - thus ensuring maximum performance and maximum payload."

Part of the improvements include a seat presence indicator, which aims to ensure starting and operating the machine is safe and efficient, and an updated remote ground mount system, which now features a keyfob.

Hiab says the forklift can dismount from a truck in under a minute and is well-suited to a variety of work environments.

"The M4NX in its design can negotiate very tight areas in terms of width and height, making it a very versatile piece of equipment," O'Reilly says.

To be on display from September 22, the new M4NX is available in a number of configurations in varying widths down to 1.9m.

New tail lifts

The second announcement out of Hiab covers three new tail lifts: the Zepro Z3N, the Zepro SZN 2000 and the Del FC500.

Launching the new models, Hiab senior vice president of tail lifts Johan Sandberg says "each of these new tail lifts reflects our proven technology and pioneering spirit".

"They are reliable, easy to install and use, and allow more payload and speed for our customers."

According to Sandberg, the Zepro Z3N model is "by far the lightest 750kg lift on the market, giving the opportunity to have more payload on your truck."

Built with Swedish DOMEX steel and powder coated, the tail lift has an opening speed of 10 degrees per second and double acting tilt cylinders.

It also has a narrow lift arm width and exterior fixed controls.

The second model from Zepro, the SZN 2000, features new shafts, longer lubrication intervals, and a ‘one size fits all’ concept to ease installation.

"The new construction and standard with frame-built profile gives ZEPRO SZN 2000 stability while it's mounted on the vehicle," Sandberg says.

"The low profile improves also the ground clearance."

The final launch is the Del FC500, a one-piece full closure lift that Hiab says will "typically sav[e] 100kg in payload compared to a conventional column lift arrangement."

The new Del features an anodised aluminium finish and safety fence options, and includes a rear frame, top door and tail lift.

All three models will be on show in Hannover from September 22.
