Hook lifts

Faster and stronger

We build our tractor drawn hook lifts with two telescopic cylinders that work together. This enables faster and stronger tipping and shifting compared to a conventional truck shifting system. A stronger system with a lower total weight makes it possible to increase the payload. The innovative hook lift system with telescopic cylinders also has a shorter installation dimension, resulting in a better shifting geometry. In addition, our product line for hook lifts, MetaFlex, comes with hydraulic suspension which provides additional stability and comfort when driving on roads and hard terrain, but especially when tipping and shifting.

faster tipping with Metsjö compared to a conventional truck shifting system

"Since we build hook lifters with telescopic cylinders with small installation dimensions, we can keep a low trailer height. Another advantage is that this gives us space for larger wheels and a low own weight. Moreover, we place a lot of emphasis on safety, both in our chassis and when it comes to shifting, as well as long usage.” 

– Anders Ivarsson, CEO of Metsjö 

To increase stability and avoid unnecessary friction on components, we use front-mounted tipping cylinders based on sound physics, which reduces the wear on the wagon.

Due to our long experience, we know how high-strength materials, telescopic cylinders and components operate in an agricultural environment. Our insights help us keep the construction light while maximizing product lifetime.

We degrease, blast, preheat and paint our wagons with two-component paint. We also harden the paint with high heat to withstand tough climates and salty environments.

We use smart and unique solutions, such as laser fitted high-quality axles with optimized steering geometry. We also construct our trailer so that large wheels can be fitted. Our product can therefore easily follow the tractor on road and in heavy terrain.

Our products consist of smart solutions and attention to detail. For example, rubber cushions and lubricated joints for quieter and more gentle functions as well as water drainage and dirt-repellent constructions for long-lasting and easy use.

All production takes place in our factory in Sweden, which means that we have full control over the product and can offer a high level of customer customization. We are welding certified according to ISO 3834-2, all our welders are certified and our production is environmentally certified. Furthermore, we have WPQRs and the possibility for full component traceability.

Proven benefits

Independent studies conclude that our trailers consume approximately 25 % less fuel on mixed road terrain with 50 % lower soil compaction compared to conventional trailers with similar load capacity.
