West-Trans Group Managing Director Jim Whittle highlights the key to the company’s success as it celebrates 25 years of business.
Hiab Australia has introduced a range of small hooklifts to meet the growing challenge of narrow access for operators while ensuring greater safety and efficiency.
The company is increasing its range of hooklifts and skip loaders to include the Multilift XXR R7 and Multilift XR10 Hooklifts (seven and 10 tonnes respectively). Its decades of experience in the European market are now being applied to meet the current challenges in Australia.
The Hiab Multilift XR10 and XR7 range aims to carry bigger payloads and enable access in tight spaces, with the goal of boosting operator return on investment all while remaining strong, robust and light.
The Hiab Multilift XR7 with its seven-tonne lifting capacity and the Hiab Multilift XR10 with its 10-tonne lifting capacity works to offer operators maximum performance and excellent functionality. The equipment’s low weight combined with extreme strength makes it a multipurpose tool.
As in all Hiab Multilift demountables, safety is a key priority in the XR series. Safety features include load-holding valves directly on the cylinders and a tipping lock mechanism.
Hiab also applied the latest 3D-CAD methods and modern production technology in the design and manufacturing of the XR range, which minimised the welding needed in construction and resulted in a stronger structure. The low weight/high strength ratio enables larger payloads, enhances the versatility of the vehicle and maximises its usage.
Monash City Council procured a multirail hooklift with an adjustable hook to provide a flexible bin collection service.
Hiab’s Multilift range of hooklifts have been helping Australian waste businesses race ahead of the competition with their collections.
The Succilift Hookloader is helping Melburnian transport business Rhino Bins service building sites in demanding and tight spaces.
