Hiab introduced its newgeneration Multilift Futura skiploader at RWM.
Made from lightweight steel, the redesigned structure now offers between 300-500kg more payload without compromising strength or safety. This allows customers to reduce costs by lessening the number of loads and it also helps reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions.
Its distinctive SwanNeck design allows the extra-long telescopic arms to increase the skiploader’s reach while maintaining stability. As well as allowing operators to remain at a distance from potential hazards, this is also useful on sites with difficult-to-negotiate angles or when lifting over fences and obstacles.
The Futura features hydraulic side stops, container locks and precise controls combined with safety interlocks. Its SkipTop technology means that operators can cover any load at the touch of a button with no need to climb on to the vehicle.
It can also be customised using FlexControl, with options that include any combination of outside, in-cab and radio remote controls, a dynamic on-board weighing system and smart drive for telescopic arms and stabiliser legs.
