Cargotec Introduces Hiab Truck-Mounted Forklift for One-Side Offloading


Cargotec, Monroe, N.J., has introduced a telescopic boom truck-mounted forklift for one-side offloading. Following the launch of the M2 in 2009, the new M10 25.3 joins Cargotec's Hiab Moffett M-Series, designed for all applications that require regular on and offloading from one side of the truck or trailer. The M10 25.3 machine is the result of extensive research and close cooperation with customers. Typical applications that employ one-side offloading include turf and lawn products, fertilizer (palletised or bulk bags), brick and block, architectural stone products, animal feeds, scaffolding, and timber products. The telescopic boom allows loading and unloading of single-stacked loads from one side of the trailer bed and eliminates the need to move the vehicle during the process, enabling more deliveries in less time.

The Hiab forklift features the modern look and durability of the M-Series. Operator ergonomics are reflected in the spacious layout of the 360° visibility driver compartment, specifically in the dash panel arrangement and automotive drive control with easy joystick control.

The 50-hp Kubota engine guarantees outstanding performance and smooth operation along with reduced noise and vibration. The M10 features off-road capability and gradability for the toughest working environment, along with a tight turning circle to negotiate the busiest and most confined conditions. Like any other model in the M-Series, the M10 25.3 has been designed for optimized serviceability, with easy access to all fill points and engine bay, both hood and radiator grill are easily removable.
