…….make a difference to both animals and environment
Hiab, part of Cargotec, has delivered two MOFFETT M4 ProFutureTM truck mounted forklifts to van den Eerenbeemt Fourage BV in Liessel, North Brabant, The Netherlands.
Van den Eerenbeemt Fourage is a young, dynamic company that specialises in the purchase and distribution of animal feedstuffs, animal bedding materials, and agricultural mulching materials such as hay, alfalfa, straw, sawdust, wood shavings, and other specialist products.
The MOFFETT M4 ProFutureTM features lower emissions of both CO2 and PM10 particulate matter, up to 32 percent lower fuel consumption, and reduced noise levels of -4dBA compared to the standard model. High performance levels, however, have been maintained and the speed of load lifting at idle engine speed has been increased by 40 percent.
“The benefit of this new technology is that the machine’s reduced noise levels make it quiet enough to do early morning deliveries in an inner city residential environment, running costs are reduced, and yet it can do the job faster and with a lower impact on the environment – important considerations for a small but highly populated country such as The Netherlands”, said Ruud Schoorl, Region Manager, MOFFETT, Hiab Southern Netherlands.
The priority for van den Eerenbeemt was a reliable, lightweight truck mounted forklift that is easy to maintain, as their machines are in constant use and are maintained in the company’s own workshop. In addition, it features longer hydraulic oil and filter service intervals.
“One delivery might be to a large farm, with a fully paved yard, whilst the next might be to a muddy field at the back of someone’s house, with narrow access, where they keep their horse,” said Eric van den Eerenbeemt, Managing Director of van den Eerenbeemt. “The MOFFETT truck mounted forklifts can cope with both situations, and the delivery driver can be confident that he is safe inside the cab, yet has great visibility for unloading and set down of the load.”
“Most of our customers keep livestock, and with dairy cows in particular, it is important to keep noise levels to a minimum when working near them. Happy cows produce more milk, so the quietness of these new ProFutureTM truck mounted forklifts when in use is making a huge difference to the animals, and our customers are very happy about this,” added van den Eerenbeemt.
The low weight of the equipment means that van den Eerenbeemt is able to maximise the payload of their delivery vehicles, as the MOFFETT truck mounted forklift is some 250kg lighter than its competitors. The M4 20.3 model has a lifting capacity of two tons, to a height of three metres, which is ideal for the variety and size of cargo that they deliver.
“Moreover, the ProFutureTM models have been approved by the Dutch government for corporate tax rebates due to their environmental credentials with. This is good news for small businesses, as it significantly reduces capital investment costs, and the low running costs make it very economical to use,” concludes van Eerenbeemt.”
The ProFutureTM generation of MOFFETT truck mounted forklifts is Hiab’s latest innovation to reduce the environmental impact of its products. ProFutureTM products meet a number of industry-leading criteria regarding power source, energy efficiency, carbon efficiency, emissions, and recyclability.
