UnikTruck delivers good-as-new 12 ton Hyster H12.00 XM-6 heavy forklift to steel- and machining company in Germany

UnikTruck recently completed delivery of a preowned, fully refurbished 12 ton Hyster XM heavy-capacity forklift to a steel- and machining company in mid Germany.

The customer needed a clean, environment friendly and durable heavy forklift with low hours with very compact physical measures. And they wanted a product in top quality which would ensure low operating costs for many years to come. The customer already had Hyster forklifts in operation and wanted to stick with this brand again due to the tough construction and low lifetime-costs which characterize a Hyster.

The customer approached several suppliers, but quickly decided to team up with UnikTruck as a true specialist in this field of business. 

The Hyster H12.00 XM-6 forklift was chosen because of its high quality and ultra compact build. With a wheelbase of 3000mm and an overall width of only 2300mm the forklift still manages to handle 12 metric tons at 600mm load-centre at full lifting-height. 

The forklift was a pre-owned unit with only just under 4000 hours on the clock. The Hyster forklift was both serviced and safety approved prior to delivery in our specialized heavy-equipment workshop. 

The forklift was delivered turn-key by UnikTruck’s own dedicated low-loader including driver-training and safety instruction provided from the beginning. 

Yet another example of our wide and deep competence as well as quick response-time, when it comes to specialized, industrial heavy-duty handling.
