The ML 5012R has a lifting capacity of 50 tonnes with a load centre of 1.2 m. The compact truck is capable of operating in confined spaces indoors or outdoors, and has a reach that enables it to handle heavy loads from positions that are impossible for straight-masted trucks. Thanks to its telescopic twin booms, the truck has a relatively low overall height. Combined with a top-lift container spreader, it can be used for on-board ro-ro activities. The direct hydraulic lift is also simpler to maintain, according to the company.
The horizontal telescopic twin boom configuration and hydraulically movable cabin design offer excellent visibility and comfort for the driver. The truck is equipped with a low-emission Volvo engine, ZF transmission and electrically-controlled load sensing hydraulics and variable displacement pumps, combined with CanBus technology for reliable operation.
The machine has a maximum lift height of 6.55 m with forks and an outreach of 2.25 m. With a length of 7.7 m (without forks), a width of 3.8 m and a turning radius of 7 m, it is the most compact lift-truck on the market in its lifting capacity range.
