Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands, 10 May 2011. Hyva, a leading global provider of transport solutions for the commercial vehicle and environmental service industries, has introduced the 01-18-R ‘City’ hook loader as the smallest in the HyvaLift range.
The 01-18-R has been developed to assist companies with the efficient and safe transport of goods up to 500 kilograms and meet the growing demand for efficient transport solutions in the sub-3.5T GVW class.
In many countries this GVW class is not restricted or less restricted by regulations than vehicles above 3.5T GVW. Furthermore, these compact vehicle combinations allow users to access narrower roads and smaller spaces while still maintaining the functionality of a larger hookloader.
The Hyva ‘City’ hook loader provides a durable light-weight system, which has the flexibility to fit many different containers or accessories. This enables the 01-18-R to cater for many transport requirements in construction, environmental, gardening and general transport applications.
The 01-18-R is designed to improve (un-)loading times by using removable containers and a fast and safe loading mechanism. The 01-18-R can handle containers with lengths of 1.8m up to 2.4m* and has a lifting and tipping capacity of 500 kilograms. This capacity enables the 01-18-R, for example, to efficiently transport 2 euro pallets, 2 big bags or 2m2 of waste. And because the hydraulic power unit and electric controls are included in the system, no additional investment in PTOs or pumps is required, resulting in a cost-efficient, flexible and ergonomic container handling system.
The Hyva ‘City’ hook loader can improve economic performance by increasing operating efficiency and decreasing absenteeism caused by work related injury. Reduced (un)loading and waiting times will save man hours and ground level loading can reduce lift related injuries (Lower back pains have a relatively high prevalence amongst workers in the small construction and landscaping sectors).
All the specifications of the new 01-18-R ‘City’ hook loader are available through the I-Catalogue, Hyva’s online tool which is accessible through the Hyva website (www.hyva.com). This provides up-to-date specifications and information on the complete range of HyvaLift products.
