Brand new Hyster 16 ton diesel forklift with 6000mm triplex mast delivered to rental customer

UnikTruck has been chosen as supplier of a brand new Hyster H16.00XM-12 heavy-capacity rental forklift to a nationwide forklift rental company in Germany.

The forklift was delivered in April 2017.

The company needed a big forklift capable of handling 16 tonnes of load at 1200mm load-centre and additionally the operation required a lifting height of 6000mm and full freelift due to height restrictions.

As a company dedicated to bandwidth in the materials handling industry UnikTruck was able to deliver the solution from the shelf.

The unit was delivered in one piece by our own low-loader which shows yet again our wide and deep competence and flexibility - when it comes to handling heavy loads under difficult circumstances.
