RIIKO® optimizes load capacity

RIIKO® timber superstructures made of modern special steel guarantee maximum payload for your timber truck. Thanks to the Strenx 650 structural steel, the RIIKO® timber superstructure is both light and durable. The modular structure makes the RIIKO® superstructure a safe choice. The components of the superstructures are put together with bolted joints, which guarantees easy maintenance and modification of the truck. In addition to production, we offer comprehensive maintenance and spare parts services so that your equipment can be maintained carefree in the future as well.


You choose - we implement

RIIKO® timber superstructures are made brand-free for all trucks according to the special requirements of all axle and suspension options. Our crane brackets are also implemented for all crane models. Crane assembly is dimensioned according to the selected chassis type and the loads to be driven on it, without forgetting the effects of the crane's center of gravity on the truck's driving characteristics in different situations. For the RIIKO® subframe package, you can choose the components and dimensions according to your needs, so that the finished whole is exactly what you need. We produce lots fo unique solutions from special crane brackets to small accessories according to our customers wishes.

RIIKO® pneumatic tightener for timber trucks

The load tightening regulations for timber trucks are changed according to post-tensioning. In the future, the bindings of the bundles of wood should be equipped with a device that produces a constant tightening force. The RIIKO® pneumatic tightener meets the changed requirements. The tightener produces a continuous tightening force of 5.4 kN and is available with chain or cable. The binding remains as tight as required, even if the load changes its shape slightly during driving. The RIIKO® load tightener is mounted on the inside of the subframe of the truck or trailer with a bolt attachment. The installation can be carried out by a driver himself, operation requires only pneumatic supply. From us you can get a ready-to-install load tightener package easily delivered.
