Dalby Hydraulic HookliftsThe French leader in roll-off transport and handling equipment market will be exhibiting at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 in Hannover from 20th -27th September. They will be presenting a MAN truck fitted with a DALBY XHM3 hooklift.

Among the benefits of the XHM3 hooklift:

  • Optimised weight
  • Excellent stability: the hooklift's height has been reduced. Its centre of gravity is lower, thus improving the overall stability.
  • Improved visibility: the hooklift's structure has been refined.
  • Longevity and durability
    - Engineering:
    improved robustness by casting parts (jib hook, articulations, rear hydraulic locking, container supports of tipping frame, rear rollers…).
    - Hydraulics: excellent reliability by using bigger pipe diameters and reduction of connections.
  • Easy to maintain
    - Pneumatic and mechanical parts are simplified and integrated into the hooklift's structure and are easily accessible
    - In-cab pneumatic control box
    - Parts coated with anti-rust coating
    - Number of greasing points reduced

Stuart CrowtherAnd looking to expand further in the UK

Stuart Crowther, CEO at Powertec Vehicle Engineering Ltd (distributor for the UK market):

"DALBY offers me, as UK dealer, a perfect support for sales but also after-sales thanks to professional dedicated team".

This sentiment is confirmed by its customer J.B Schofield, one of the foremost scrap metal buyers and sellers in the UK, which has been recycling since 1876: "After testing several brands of hook lifts with lifetimes of more or less 5 years, we were very happy to discover the DALBY brand. Our oldest arm still works perfectly after 8 years! Having a local distributor bringing all the necessary service for the maintenance of this equipment is another undeniable advantage".
