Hyster 25 ton large-capacity forklift delivered to new customer in Sweden

UnikTruck has been chosen as supplier of a new Hyster H25.00 XM-12 heavy-duty masted forklift to a newly established production company specialized in flexible housing solutions.  

The Hyster heavy-capacity forklift is equipped with a special built forkpositioner & sideshift carriage with quick-exchange system, enabling the forklift to operate an special hook-on carriage with 6.5 meter width and 4 pcs. of forks.

This additional carriage  is quickly detachable, and enables the forklift to operate safely with loads of up to 12 meters long.

The majestic heavy capacity Hyster forklift will be used for dedicated handling of wooden housing segments (turn-key building elements) ranging in a lenght from 6 to 12 metres.




The unit itself was delivered in one big self-propelled piece and transported on UnikTruck's in-house heavy-low-loader to the site. The extra wide carriage and forks were transported on a separate low-bed trailer with police escorte – due to the big dimensions. The Hyster unit will start daily operation in early December 2016.

PDI and final quality-testing was performed by in-house specialists on-site just after delivery. The unit was on stock at time of first contact and so UnikTruck was able to deliver this turn-key solution only 14 days after the initial contact. 

Just another example of our wide and deep competences within specialized heavy-duty lifting.
