Latest generation engine

2.8-liter CAT engine built to meet EU Stage 5 requirements for reduced particulate matter and lower nitrogen oxide levels. Same power output as Malwa’s previous Cat engines – 55kW/75hp. Very high serviceability.


Professional cranes

Select Cranab’s FC45T with a reach of 6.1 m or the FC45DT with a reach of 8 m. Both have extremely good motion geometry.

Hydrostatic transmission

Hydro-mechanical drive line in absolutely top class with Bosch Rexroth A4VG/A6Vm transmission provides operational reliability, high efficiency and unique driving properties off-road. The working hydraulics is load sensing and power regulated.


Sheltered and safe operating environment

Climate control system, ECC. Air suspension seat, electrically heated and damping in two directions, different adjustment functions, lumbar support, etc. Good all-round visibility with extra-low side windows for checking the terrain and wheels.

Increased loading capacity with trailer

Combine the forwarder with a trailer to increase the load capacity to as much as 9 tonnes.
