Hiab Launches the MOFFETT M5 NX Truck-Mounted Forklift

Hiab, part of Cargotec, launched the new MOFFETT M5 NX truck-mounted forklift – the latest model in its exciting NX series of next-generation machines – at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, UK, on April 24-26, 2018. 

The MOFFETT M5 NX is the ideal machine for medium- to heavy-duty tasks, with an efficient power to weight ratio.

“The M5 NX is the newest addition to our NX range of truck-mounted forklifts, featuring improved operator safety and comfort, easier maintenance and enhanced styling, all combined with the great performance and trusted reliability that is expected from a MOFFETT,” says Keith Quigley, senior vice president, Truck Mounted Forklifts, Hiab.

The M5 NX is light enough to be carried on almost any truck or trailer, yet it can lift up to 2,500 kg, giving it a highly efficient power to weight ratio. It is available with the option of the Lift Assist system, enabling it to safely unload from one side, which gives it supreme flexibility in confined spaces and situations where a normal front-loading forklift simply could not operate. So, whether there is a need to unload in busy streets, congested urban environments, or simply on a building site, the M5 NX is capable of delivering a wide range of products, from building supplies and industrial gasses, to animal feeds and turf, quickly and safely. 

“With Ground Start as standard, the operator can safely mount and dismount the machine from the ground, and the M5 NX can be dismounted from the truck in less than 60 seconds,” says Nigel Brook, product business manager, Truck-Mounted Forklifts, Hiab. “The bonnet has been redesigned to give extra visibility, and together with the new LED lights and beacon, interlocking seat belt, a larger enclosure, and new pedal positions, these features give maximum safety and comfort to the operator. And the redesigned bonnet and rear doors make access for daily maintenance checks incredibly easy and fast.”
