MV Commercial custom truck with HIAB 1058 is a masterpiece for JA Mackenzie Haulage
A specialist vehicle featuring the longest reach HIAB loader crane, HIAB 1058, in the UK has been supplied by MV Commercial to JA Mackenzie Haulage.
The Volvo FH500 GT 8×2 unit incorporates a HIAB 1058 crane featuring ten hydraulic extensions, giving the vehicle a lifting capability of 2.5 tonnes at a reach of almost 24m.
Built at MV Commercial’s Airdrie ‘super site’, the new truck will support JA Mackenzie Haulage’s specialist transport operations for works of art and public sculptures.
Jimmy Mackenzie, Managing Director of the company, says: “Our work often includes very unusual lifts such as loading priceless paintings through gallery windows, where precision and control are essential. We required something very special – and MV Commercial’s design team stepped up to the challenge, and were able to deliver a truck that matched our precise specifications.”
The new vehicle replaces an older asset and includes a range of tailored features designed to make lifting irreplaceable artwork quick, easy and safe.
