MOFFET three-wheel forklifts provide fast, safe and comfortable delivery of material and goods right "to the customer's house", including the unloading of the load to the designated place. MOFFETT is designed to be stored and transported on the back of a truck or trailer giving the driver its own and independent way of loading and unloading. At the destination, the truck can be prepared for unloading / loading (removed from the truck and reattached to the truck) in approximately one minute.

Detailed information of certain Moffet types can be found on website Hiab – Moffett.

Model range

The wide range of truck-mounted forklifts allows the operator to handle loads from 1.5 to 3.5 ton. Unlike conventional industrial forklifts, truck-mounted forklifts can also be used in places with problematic accessibility and cross-country permeability. There are several types according to the industry application and a way of use.

City distribution

The highly manoeuvrable truck-mounted forklift is ideal for urban deliveries in locations where access is restricted and low noise is paramount. Deliveries are made without any engine noise or emissions, allowing the operator to travel right to the point of delivery.

By type of truck, there is a list of advanced features that improve its operational efficiency and increase productivity.

Ground StartTM

Enhancing safety. With GroundStart as standard, dismounting the M4 NX is now even easier for the operator no matter the location.

Super Reach®

Extended reach with SuperReach. The combination of a Lift Assist® arm and a pantograph reach device or telescopic fork enables you to load and offload from the far side of a fully loaded truck at full lift capacity. [Optional Feature]

Řízení ve čtyřech směrech

All of the wheels on MOFFETT 4-way models can be rotated independently for lateral movement when handling wide loads or negotiating narrow pathways. This helps it wriggle through confined spaces with ease. [Optional Feature]


Truck-mounted forklift Moffett does not have a counterweight at the rear, but a horizontally mounted movable column, the position of which determines the position of the center of gravity when the truck is empty and the combined center of gravity when it is loaded.

Moffett has stabilizers in front of the wheels, which become the pivot point when lowering the load (they move from the center of the front wheel to the point of contact with the ground). This allows the forklift to increase the rated load.

The premium quality of the steel guarantees the structural strength of the Moffett device during continuous operation. Warranty on the load-bearing parts of the structure is extended to 5 years.

The special nDurance anti-corrosion treatment provides maximum protection against the weather conditions to which Hiab machines are exposed every day.

Spare parts specially designed for Moffett equipment achieving the required quality, durability and reliability.

The Irish company Moffett Engineering Limited is the world's leading manufacturer of MOFFETT forklifts with a history of more than 70 years. Moffett is part of the Cargotec corporation covering the brands Hiab, Multilift, Kalmar, McGREGOR and others.
