Hiab introduces new skiploader

  • Posted on Thursday 4th, January 2018.

Materials handling equipment specialist, Hiab, has launched its new Multilift Futura 18 skiploader, meeting the requirements of heavy-duty skiploader operators in the industry.

This latest launch reportedly completes Hiab's Multilift Futura product range, comprising equipment with 8-, 12- and 18-tonne capacity.

"Common for all Multilift Futura skiploaders is that they are designed to deliver more payload due to their smart construction,” said Hiab Director of Sales and Product Business Management for demountables, Henri Janhonen.

The new Futura 18 model, which has carrying capacity to lift 18 tonnes in a single trip, offers the operator increased productivity with decreased fuel consumption as fewer trips to haul the same load is needed, according to Hiab. The EvoLight steel construction reportedly helps to maximise the payload without compromising strength.

"We also paid a lot of attention in our R&D to easy service and maintenance to maximise our customers' uptime,” said Hiab Director of Product Portfolio Management for Demountables, Pauliina Kunvik.

"For us in Hiab, safety always comes first. We have the same safety features in the Futura 18 skiploader as in our other Futura models to help eliminate needless risks,” she said.

"The launch of Multilift Futura 18 and the completion of the range makes us a strong player on the global skiploader market,” said Janhonen. “We have taken into account our customers' wishes with our unique features and benefits, service offers and safety focus. We have taken the lead in skiploaders and continue to be the pioneer of this industry.”
