Hiab Receives $17 Million Repeat Order for Moffett Truck-Mounted Forklifts

Hiab, part of Cargotec, has received a significant repeat order for Moffett M8 55 NX truck-mounted forklifts in the United States. The £17 million order is from one of the country's largest building materials supply companies.  The company also placed a significant order with Hiab in Q1 2022.

This order was booked in Cargotec's 2022 Q2 order intake, and the units are scheduled to be delivered in Q1 2023.  Jani Koskinen, senior manager, strategic accounts, Hiab, said this order shows continued trust and long-term partnership with Hiab.  "Our customer's focus on the consumer and professional contractor segments, and the development of new, efficient delivery models are increasing the demand for delivery capacity and fleet requirements.

We are very proud that the reliability of Moffett has been a crucial part of the company's success in a competitive industry," said Koskinen. The M8 55 NX has a moving mast and a lifting capacity of 5,500 lbs. Some units will be delivered with 4-way steering for negotiating tight access areas with long loads.

The Moffett M8 55 NX can transfer heavy loads quickly and safely, even across challenging terrain. While it is incredibly powerful, it is still compact enough to be carried on a wide variety of truck and trailer classes.  Every Moffett truck-mounted forklift is compliant with Tier 4 emission standards in North America and Canada as well as European Stage V regulations. 

"We can now deliver Moffett truck mounted forklifts that are fully assembled in the USA at our Streetsboro facility. Soon, we will also introduce the eSeries in the US that offers the same performance without any emissions," says Jann Hansen, vice president, sales & product management, truck mounted forklifts, Hiab. In addition, all Moffett M8 NXs will be delivered with connectivity enabled and premium access to HiConnect for two years.

HiConnect Premium provides real-time insights into equipment utilization, operation, and condition that can be used to avoid unnecessary downtime and optimize performance and safety.
