Hiab, part of Cargotec, will be launching their next generation of popular column lift for light duty vehicles. To be showcased at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, the new Del DL500 will be on display at Hiab’s UK stand 4C10 at the CV Show. This new, lighter model, which will be introduced through the remainder of 2019, is easier to install and comes equipped with new safety features.
"DEL DL500 is the most effective solution for last mile deliveries and our customers clearly agree as it is the most popular choice for 3.5-tonne vehicles in the UK. As the new column lift is lighter, customers can carry more load or save fuel costs. The improved design increases uptime and reduces maintenance, so our customers can spend more time on delivering on their promises."
- Gaston van Kleef, Director Sales & Services, Hiab Tail Lifts EMEA.
The new DEL DL500 has a redesigned catch and additional anti-tilt features that improves platform operation, as well as no platform lock protrusion, which makes it easier and safer to operate. It also comes with a quieter, new chain roller that gives smooth operation and has less maintenance requirements.
Customers who order the new DEL DL500 can soon have it at the back of their vehicles. All units are manufactured in the UK with short lead times. The new model is also faster to install than ever. The new plug & play concept simplifies and speeds up the electrical installation process. There is also a wealth of options that the customers can choose from to create the ideal column lift for their needs.
Though the next generation DEL DL500 has many new and improved features, some things have not changed. It can still lift 500 kg, despite the weight decrease. The weather resistance continues to be second to none with a high grade, galvanized steel construction and a power pack protected in the beam.
DEL service packages offer unrivaled level of service and support designed to secure maximum uptime. All service and repairs are done using original spare and wear parts so the equipment maintain the same functionality, performance and safety as when it was new.
