The Gföllner curling competition 2019

Also this year we could use the short cold period for a traditional company curling competition. Only wooden ice-sticks were allowed and the teams were determined by lot. After a hard but fair competition the winners were announced at the subsequent celebration afterwards.

We congratulate quite cordially!

Construction: skiploader Multilift FUTURA 12

A Clean and excellent job

End of January, we were able to hand over 5 trucks and 3 trailers with box body and tail lift to company Wozabal Miettex GmbH, our workwear supplier.
The superstructures with new lettering design were designed as through-loading trains so that the trailer can be loaded through the tailgate platform of the truck.
Therefore the tongue of the trailer is adjustable to ensure the ideal distance to the truck for driving or through-loading.
The cargo room is equipped with a dividing wall for the hygiene separation of clean and unclean goods including load securing.
In our view a very "clean" job 🙂 .

Our customer is thinking of tomorrow!

For our long-standing partner, Energie AG OÖ, we were able to build a special platform structure with front crane HIAB X-HiPro 192 E-6 on a MAN 18.320 with Tiger front winch and a special outrigger.

The vehicle is certified for concrete mast and cable drum transports and equipped with individually adapted aluminum storage boxes.

The Tiger front winch can be operated via the HIAB remote control.

The outrigger of the winch is integrated in the HIAB stability monitoring system VSL and enables on the one hand stabilization of the vehicle in the work basket application and on the other hand almost 100% crane capacity in the front.

We wish you a lot of fun and accident-free missions!

The fast solution

At our long-term partner Trumpf, whose first-class machines are also in use at Gföllner, we were able to expand an office container system by one floor.

Office containers are in many cases the ideal solution. It may be that an alternative accommodation is needed or a project-specific team is formed. But the most common requirement we get is: “We need more space and that as fast as possible”.
