The Boss 500 series is industry’s long established favourite workhorse for 400kg to 6000kg long loads. Always a standard setter for productivity and reliability, the 500 series now boasts a list of enhancements for even better performance.

The new Boss 500 series comes, in standard form, with masts that allow free lift to platform height. The standard mast is also 4m duplex design – because research showed that’s what most customers want. So now, the Boss 500 sideloader will lift to the height you need, in more places than
