Hiab presents MOFFETT M4NX truck mounted forklift - a next generation version of the classic M4



Hiab, part of Cargotec, introduces all-new MOFFETT M4NX, the next generation truck mounted forklift at the IAA exhibition, in Hannover, Germany.   


"MOFFETT is a globally recognised and trusted brand, and for the past 30 years the MOFFETT truck mounted forklifts have earned a reputation for delivering top performance. As we strive to constantly improve our products, the MOFFETT team has taken customer and market insight in order to develop the NX range: a new generation of even better truck mounted forklifts," says Keith Quigley, Hiab's Senior Vice President, Truck Mounted Forklifts. "We are very excited to launch the NX series in Europe with the all-new MOFFETT M4NX at the IAA!"

Even safer, stronger and quicker than MOFFETT M4

"The next generation MOFFETT M4, the M4NX, has been made even better with a focus of added safety, easier servicing and more comfort to the operator," tells Michael O'Reilly, Product Manager, Truck Mounted Forklifts.

"By making the M4NX as light as possible without affecting our reputation for having durable quality products we ensure that the operators benefit by getting maximum payload on their vehicle. The M4NX can effectively carry more than its own unladen weight - like an ant - thus ensuring maximum performance and maximum payload."

Safety is the number one priority of MOFFETTs design, and the M4NX is no exception: It has a seat presence indicator for the operator which ensures that he or she starts and operates the machine in a safe and efficient manner. The remote ground mount system has also been upgraded to a new design with an easy to use keyfob so no matter what the situation, the M4NX will be used in the correct manner at all times. M4NX also gets detached from the truck and ready to deliver the goods in less than 60 seconds.

"The M4NX in its design can negotiate very tight areas in terms of width and height, making it a very versatile piece of equipment. Depending on configuration the M4NX can be as narrow as 1,900mm. All MOFFETT truck mounted forklifts are designed to off load the delivery quickly and efficiently, and deliver the good exactly where they are required. This may be on a muddy building site or at a city centre retail unit. We ensure that no matter what the applications and need of the customer, we have a MOFFETT that will suit the need," concludes O'Reilly.
