Hyland Transport elevates to Megalift No.2


Monaghan based heavy lifting equipment manufacturers Megalift has supplied a second new generation container side-lifter to Hyland Transport. The Portlaoise, County Laois haulage company is an industry leader in this area – lifting and dropping fully loaded containers via the Megalift side-lifter since 2018.

The firm’s owner Ger Hyland upgraded to the new Megalift “MKII” version, which comes with features such as swapping from 20ft to 40ft from the comfort of the driver compartment. The new solas compliant weight system and the new ultra-light cranes which combine to reduce weight and increase payload are some of the reasons he opted yet again for the Megalift system.

“Having now delivered the second Megalift just recently, it is a testimony to our product and ongoing after-sales and support which is paramount to receiving repeat orders like this, stated Meredith Hall, Managing Director, Megalift.

Megalift currently manufactures 40 container lifters per year at Ballinode, County Monaghan and although most of its business is export focused, the Irish market has grown significantly and with more and more customers wanting to load/unload containers from the ground.
