Moffett M5 PL Pantograph – Lorry-Mounted Forklift Truck Hire
Daily Hire From (excl. VAT) £60.00
Moffett rental with pantograph extension
Moffett M5 PL featuring “Lift Assist” with pantograph scissor extension.
The HIAB Moffett (formerly known as Moffett Mounty) M5 is one of the most popular Truck-mounted Forklifts on our Moffett rental fleet. It provides the solution to transferring loads up to 2000 kg (with pantograph extended) to 2500 kg (with pantograph retracted) and helps you to reduce your transport costs.
The M5 PL Pantograph, with Moffett’s “Lift Assist” technologies, increases the flexibility, speed and safety of working with the Moffett, enabling one-side offloading.
The combination of “Lift Assist” with pantograph or telescopic forks on the M5 & M8 range enables you to load and offload from the far side of a fully loaded truck with all mast functions such as side shift and tilt, without causing the mast to collide with the truck or trailer body.
The scissor / pantograph mechanism allows the operator to lift product from one side of the truck or trailer. Another system which enables one-side off-loading is a Moffett with long-reach extending forks, which we also have on our Moffett hire fleet. A benefit of a pantograph extension, over extending forks, is that this device uses standard section forks, whereas extending forks are much bulkier.
Moffett truck-mounted fork lifts offer efficiency benefits through allowing your trained* delivery drivers to be “self-sufficient”. By loading and unloading their own vehicles with a Moffett fork lift (available to hire from us separately), your delivery drivers instead don’t have to rely on customers having their own unloading equipment available. This can prove extremely time efficient and reliable when calculating delivery schedules with tight deadlines.
The M5 PL model is best suited to applications such as:
Distribution of extrusions …and much more!
Standard features include:
Moving mast. The mast is ‘reached’ forward to pick up loads from the front of the wheels.
Pantograph “scissor-type” extension between mast and forks, for even greater reach.
Lift Assist mechanism for added stability when lifting at full reach.
Direct drive engine and hydraulic oil pump for high performance.
Road lights, reverse beeper and interlocking seatbelt for additional safety.
Flashing beacon and work lights for driver safety and confidence.
Easy-drive regulator to prevent stalling.
Differential lock to get better grip when driving on rough terrain.
New ROPS/FOPS (Rollover/Falling Object Protective Structure) to protect the driver.
Stabilisers for extra stability, loading and unloading in front of wheels.
“Clear View” Mast.
