MULTILIFT XR Hooklift sales remain strong



Sales of Hiab MULTILIFT demountable systems are up by a staggering 26% year on year following the introduction of the MULTILIFT XR Power range.  Despite a flattening market, demand remains strong in 2009 with three substantial contracts - some 53 new machines - for Viridor, SCA Recycling and Severnside Recycling being delivered already during the first quarter.


The MULTILIFT XR Power range now represents the best in weight/power ratio in hooklift technology, making it a solid investment for the future, whatever the challenge. 

There is a solution for even the most demanding projects with Hiab's MULTILIFT XR 26S hooklift rising to the challenge as one of the best selling products along with the XR 21S. 

Like all MULTILIFT XR Power range hooklifts, the XR 26S is operated with a unique next generation PLC (Programmable Logic Control) System.  This state-of-the-art technology offers unparalleled reliability that reduces downtime, increases operations and maximises safety.

PLC control is highly reliable and provides unique simplicity in demountable body handling.  The options include automatic control, which enables the whole lift and lowering operation to be carried out comfortably and fast with a single lever movement. With built-in intelligence, it leads to improved performance and profitability.

"This is the third generation of MULTILIFT products introduced during my 20 year career" says Ismo Leppanen, MD Hiab Ltd. "I'm absolutely delighted at how well the product has been received by our customers and how trouble free the introduction has been. This clearly shows that we have been able to convey the market requirements to our design teams and, as an end result, we have this highly reliable and popular product family that has been instantly accepted by the market." 

All options for the XR Power range are tailored to meet precise requirements, making daily load handling operations faster, simpler and safer than ever.
