Access Mechanical Handling and Moffett Truck-Mounted Forklifts


Access Mechanical Handling Limited are Scottish agents for Hiab Moffett. The Moffett is a truck mounted forklift, that is, it executes all the functions of a conventional forklift truck – carrying loads and loading/offloading vehicles. However, unlike a conventional forklift it is light and compact enough to be carried on the back of a lorry or truck.

The concept of Truck-mounted Forklifts was invented by HIab Moffett more than 40 years ago; a load handling solution that has revolutionised the way materials are distributed across the globe. Today, the Hiab Moffett is the world’s number one selling Truck-mounted Forklift.

With a high quality production plant in Ireland employing a team of professional and skilled personnel, together with state of the art engineering and R&D facilities, you can be assured that with a Hiab Moffett Truck-mounted Forklift, confidence will be delivered daily to your customers.

A Hiab Moffett can be carried on the rear of virtually any truck or trailer combination and can be mounted or dismounted in less than one minute.

MOFFETT solutions to logistical challenges

MOFFETT truck-mounted forklifts provide the solution to transferring loads up to 2,5 ton from trucks or trailers and around warehouse facilities. With the ability to work on paved surfaces and firm, off-road conditions, MOFFETT truck-mounted forklifts can provide the solution to almost any logistical challenge. Innovative design means that a MOFFETT can be carried on the rear of a truck or trailer with no loss of load space. There is no waiting for local off-loading equipment which means faster, safer and more cost effective deliveries.
