Hiab Moffett M5 20.4


The Hiab Moffett M5 20.4 is a multi-directional (4-way) machine that can be switched from a normal forklift to a reach-truck in a split second! It provides the solution to transferring loads up to 2000 Kg. and is one of the most popular Truck-mounted Forklifts to be produced by Cargotec.

The machine is also available with our patented Lift Assist and one sided off-loading package, a combination which enables one man and one machine to load and unload from just one side of the truck or trailer. The use of this system allows the Hiab Moffett M5 20.4 to operate at full load capacity thus minimising time on site and boosting productivity.
