SveTruck 45 ton heavy-capacity rental forklift

UnikTruck recently completed delivery of a preowned, fully refurbished SveTruck 45120-54 forklift to a major stevedoring company in Hamburg, Germany. The customer received an order for steel slab handling at very short notice, and needed heavy equipment capable of handling the operation.

The customer was looking for a new or very lightly used 45 ton forklift in mint condition. It was critical to get immediate delivery as the steel slab shipment would start to arrive in less than 2 weeks time. UnikTruck was able to design a turn-key rental solution with delivery, instruction, a top condition forklift and 24-7-365 service contract to cover the application.

The SveTruck 45 ton forklift was delivered by mobile-crane and barge shipment directly from stock to customer only one week after initial contact. Subsequently the forklift went direct into operation.

Yet another example of class-leading competence and versatility when it comes to heavy load materials handling.

We work very closely with the leading brands in the field of heavy-equipment lifting – like Kalmar, Hyster, SveTruck and SMV.
