Hyster 52 ton large-capacity forklift delivered to new customer in Norway

UnikTruck has been chosen as supplier of a new Hyster H52.00 XM-12 heavy-duty masted forklift to a major European construction conglomerate.  

The Hyster heavy-capacity forklift is equipped with a special built forkpositioner & sideshift carriage with quick-exchange system enabling the forklift to operate with various forks and attachments. 

The majestic heavy capacity Hyster forklift will be used for dedicated handling of sloped concrete elements used in the construction of tunnels.


The unit was dismantled in 1 big self-propelled piece and transported on our in-house heavy-low-loader to the site. The lifting mast, carriage and forks were transported on one of our other in-house lorries. The big Hyster forklift is now awaiting delivery of special fork pockets with vulkollan surface used to prevent damage on the concrete surface. The unit will go into daily operation in early September 2016.

PDI and final quality-testing was performed by in-house specialists before departure to Norway. The unit was on stock at time of first contact and so UnikTruck was able to deliver this turn-key solution in only 10 days after initial contact. 

Yet another example of our wide and deep competence, when it comes to specialized heavy-duty lifting.
