Two big forklifts delivered to long-time regular customer in the Middle East

UnikTruck recently completed delivery of one brand new Hyster H32.00 XM-12 forklift and one preowned, fully refurbished 16 ton Kalmar DCE160-12 forklift to a major concrete production company in The Middle East. 

The customer is a regular customer at UnikTruck and previously procured several big forklifts from us. 

This time the company was looking for a 32 ton and a 16 ton unit with immediate delivery and - as allways - in mint condition. The idea was to get both high value-for-money and a short delivery time. The choice was one demo-driven Hyster 32 ton forklift and one Kalmar DCE 160-12 model with low hours from year 2010. The forklifts were of course fully serviced, refurbished and new-painted in the UnikTruck workshop before delivery.  

The forklifts were both equipped with higher than normal lifting masts in order to be able to handle concrete products hanging under the forks. In order to minimize shipping costs, we placed the forks on transport brackets laterally across the fork carriage. 

Both forklifts were shipped directly on RORO vessel from the UnikTruck premises in Hamburg to a seaport close to the buyer. Due to our strategic placement within the Port of Hamburg no on-Road transportation was necessary.

Yet another example of our wide and deep competence, when it comes to heavy-duty materials handling in an international perspective.
