Hiab Cranes provide a safer, more versatile and more efficient load handling solution.

As the demand grows, so does the need for faster and more frequent pick ups.The MOFFETT bale forklift offers a unique alternative to the counterbalanced forklift that is commonly used today. It’s lightweight design and ability to mount/dismount in less than a minute allow users to pick up more material, in less time while maintaining the required payload on the transport truck.

Truck Mounted Bale Forklift Features

Remote Ground Mount

Remote Ground Mount (RGM) allows the operator to completely mount or dismount the MOFFETT without the need to climb onto or off of an elevated forklift. With up to a 25' range, the wireless remote control allows the operator to stand away from the machine and traffic during the mounting and dismounting process. This means staying out of the line of traffic or other jobsite hazards while giving optimal visibility during the mounting/dismounting process.
