Video: The new RS26 hooklift

The benchmark for heavy duty operations

The new RS26 unfolds its 26 tons of lifting capacity, especially in use for the construction industry, where it sets new standards in every respect: Not only is it lower and twice as fast as its predecessor, it also has a reduced weight of 710 kg. Suitable for 3- or 4-axle chassis

Vorteile:

  • Nominal load of 26 tons with a weight reduced by 710 kg
  • Torsion-resistant frame through the innovative and unique frame profile
  • Unwelded mounting of the frame and attachment parts enhances corrosion protection

New efficiency package with industry-leading best working speed values

The innovative power pack

The RS21 hooklift always transports very heavy container change-over systems faultlessly. As compared to its predecessor it is

  • 2x faster to save more time in every operating cycle,
  • 200 kg lighter and therefore even more payload for every load and
  • 20 mm lower for more volume and at the same time higher stability and driving safety through the low centre of gravity. You therefore gain greater room to manoeuvre for low height clearances.

Advantages:

  • Increased lifting force with high reserves
  • Torsion-resistant frame through the innovative and unique frame profile
  • Unwelded mounting of the frame and attachment parts enhances corrosion protection
  • New efficiency package with industry-leading best working speed values
Hooklift RL18

For payload and volume-oriented applications

With the RL18 hooklift you transport container change-over systems with a large volume – and with an optimised payload.

  • 100 kg lighter than the RS21 and therefore even more payload for every load
  • 40 mm lower than the RS21 for even higher stability and driving safety and even greater room to manoeuvre for low height clearances

Advantages:

  • Torsion-resistant frame through the innovative and unique frame profile
  • Unwelded mounting of the frame and attachment parts enhances corrosion protection
  • New efficiency package with industry-leading best working speed values
Hooklift RK30

The classic hooklift for multiple uses

In the RK series you can find hooklifts for a 2-axle chassis and lifting capacities from 6 to 14 tons. 30-ton payloads are even possible with the large RK30 for three or four axles.

Features for practical use

Practical solutions, cleverly thought-out

Always the matching lifting arm type

Hooklift normal lifting arm
Normal lifting arm
Hooklift telescoping arm
telescoping arm

When which lifting arm type?

Normal lifting arm:

  • When it has to be simple and sturdy
  • Optimal for containers that often have the same size

Telescoping lifting arm:

  • For extra container variety
  • When heights are low
  • When the container has to be pulled on flat
  • When the container is to be transhipped onto rail wagons

Container lock with safety package

With MEILLER hooklifts you can count on a reliable and appropriate container lock. MEILLER always provides you with the matching container lock:

  • Hydraulic locking system
  • locking latches, fixed or bolted
  • Locking for crane skip

Our safety package additionally contains an interior hydraulic locking system, hydraulic underride guard and a sequence control system.

MEILLER hydraulic system with efficiency package

Speed Competition: RS 21 and his forerunner

Original MEILLER hydraulic systems ensure the fastest operating cycles:

  • When tipping and rolling-off, the load-dependent quick movement valve accelerates extension of the lifting arm ram.
  • When lowering and pulling up the skip, the load-dependent speed movement system doubles the retraction speed compared to the previous model.

Optional available: The efficiency package

  • Quick movement system: Accelerates extension of the lifting arm ram
  • Speed movement system: Accelerates retraction of the lifting arm ram
  • Sequence control system: The sequences preprogrammed in the i.s.a.r.-control radio remote control make work even more efficient.
  • Soft stop: Effective at the end of the stroke when retracting the lifting arm ram

Operate with convenience with the i.s.a.r.-control

i.s.a.r.-control for hooklifts

Control your MEILLER hooklift easily and safely with the MEILLER i.s.a.r.-control radio control unit. Two different programme sequences are available:

  1. Roll-off the skip: extend the axle support struts, unlock the container lock, extend and swivel out the lifting arm, retract the underride guard
     
  2. Pull-up the skip and make ready to travel: swivel in the lifting arm, extend the lifting arm, extend the container lock, retract the axle support struts

With the preprogrammed sequence control processes operation is even easier.

MEILLER Eco-Kupplung®

Video: MEILLER Eco-Kupplung®

The MEILLER Eco-Kupplung® (eco clutch) is the energy saving alternative to engine-driven fixed and variable displacement pumps.The eco clutch allows you to activate and deactivate the hydraulic system when needed. This considerably reduces energy consumption.

Faciliating flexible activation, the MEILLER Eco-Kupplung ® is located between the engine-driven PTO and the hydraulic pump.

  1. The operator activates the hydraulic system using the PTO switch and the pneumatics activate the partial-load switchable clutch.
  2. The clutch accelerates the pump and connects it to the engine output shaft.
  3. The hydraulic functions are available where the clutch is fully engaged.
  4. Following use, the driver deactivates the system again using the PTO switch in the cab.
