you choose - we implement
We implement RIIKO® Superstructures on all trucks according to the special requirements of all axle and suspension options. Our crane brackets are also implemented in all crane models on the market. Crane assembly is dimensioned according to the selected chassis type and the loads driven on it, without forgetting the effects of the crane's center of gravity on the truck's driving characteristics in different situations. In the RIIKO® Subframe package, you can choose the components and dimensions according to your needs. We always design the superstructure on a customer-by-customer basis so that the finished product is exactly what you need.
RIIKO® optimizes load capacity
RIIKO® Timber Superstructures made of modern special steel guarantee maximum payload for your truck and trailer. Thanks to Strenx 650 structural steel, the RIIKO® Superstructure is both light and durable. The lowest subframe on the market, 170 mm, allows for higher timber bunks, which guarantees the best load capacity for your truck and trailer. The modular design, easy maintenance and compatible, later easily expandable equipment packages make RIIKO® Superstructures a pioneer in their field.
RELIABILITY OF DELIVERY AND GUARANTEED WORK QUALITY
The entire production chain of our superstructures, from design to assembly, takes place in the same yard, which means that your order is completed quickly, on schedule. All RIIKO® products are made by us, beginning from the press brake bending and ending to the surface finishing. We also handle inspections in our own inspection station. Our competent staff ensures that the superstructure is professionally executed down to the last detail and that the equipment leaving our workshop certainly meets your requirements.

RIIKO® EQUIPMENT OPTIONS
You can choose from the various components the options and dimensions that best suit your needs. In timber superstructures, the equipment options mainly consist of our own RIIKO® products, the main material of which is high-strength steel. All steel parts to be painted on the superstructure are treated with steel ball blasting, painted with zinc primer and surface-treated with two-component paints according to RAL colors. In addition, equipment options include a wide range of reliable and tested components from our subcontractors, such as hydraulics, sanding equipment, coupling equipment, lights and timber bunks.
Made of 6mm high-strength steel the flexible fastening mechanism at the front and the fixed fastening mechanism at the rear extend the service life of the structure and improve the controllability of the transport equipment. The subframe profiles are assembled using steel cross-members and bolted joints only. The non-welded structure guarantees a long service life for the subframe.
The cross-reinforced structure of the detachable crane bracket sockets increases torsional rigidity, improving operating comfort when driving and using a crane. The crane is easy to remove and reattach, allowing the crane to be removed during transport to maximize payload.
The internal detachable crane bracket is made to order according to the brand and model of the crane. The crane bracket is equipped with a long-stroke hydraulic cylinder with an operating distance of 1850mm. The crane can be moved to the rear up to 1000mm, making it easier to load the truck and trailer.
The hydraulic tightener of the detachable crane bracket sockets eliminates the clearance by wedging the socket structure rigidly, thus reducing oscillation during loading.
Detachable crane brackets transfer cylinder locking device is available both mechanical and pneumatic. The locking device keeps the crane bracket securely locked during crane operation and transport.
The traditional external detachable crane bracket is made to order according to the brand and model of the crane. The crane bracket can be removed during transport to maximize the payload.
The fixed crane bracket is made to order according to the crane's brand and model. Thanks to its fixed construction, the crane bracket is very stable during loading and the best option when there is no need to remove the crane.
Combination of fixed and detachable crane bracket. Crane can be moved to maximize the payload.
1-circuit, 2-circuit and LS hydraulics available. Our subcontractors are Hawe, Parker, Leduc and Rexroth as pump options. Steel valve cover.
The headboards have four model options with height to choose from. In headboards made of aircraft aluminium, the alternatives are a headboard with grapple rack, a headboard with grapple rack and visor and a straight headboard. Alternatively, a direct straight headboard with a steel wire net.
headboard oil tank assembled between cabin and the headboard. The headboard oil tank saves space from the subframe for other equipment and is compatible with all headboard models.
As an option for headboard oil tank our subcontractor´s Kovi oil tank assembled to the side of the subframe.
The oil cooler prevents the crane's hydraulic oil from overheating during heavy-duty operation. As coolers, we use the reliable Hydac brand. The bracket is mounted on the subframe and for example step boards can be connected to the assembly.
Pneumatic load tightener, where the binding is automatically tightened during transport. The attachment on the inside of the subframe from which the hooked tensioner wire is brought to the loop attached to tank cover or bunk.
Load binding chain brackets effectively prevent chain entanglement. In our model, an additional fastening at the bottom of the bracket.
The quick-release devices have several model options that can be attached to a timber bunk or subframe.
In timber bunks, the brands of our subcontractors, such as Terminator and ForestKing steel bunks and Alucar aluminium bunks, are available as alternatives.
Hydraulic transfer system for first and fourth timber bunk.
Patented and design protected hydraulically operated move assist for steel spring trucks. Allows weight transfer to drive wheels in off-road and extreme conditions.
Weight transfer between axles is also available in two functions, allowing the possibility to press / lighten either one or both axes simultaneously. The load divider helps with off-road and extreme conditions and reduces tire and fuel consumption.
Fixed, removable and pneumatic mudguards as options. Pneumatic and quick-release mudguards make it easier to add and remove snow chains. Additional frame gap sheet is available for the mudguards, which protects the chassis from dirt. Mudflap brackets can be assembled with, for example, light brackets and boxes as well as step boards.
Alternatively, a narrow model attached to the subframe and a wider model mounted on the tank cover.
The grapple rests on rubber pads that prevent the grapple from slipping on the support frame in wet, icy and snowy conditions. The hinges make the base easy to clean. The grapple supports can be assembled with the hosebox.
Alternatives include a short skedbar for crane knee and a longer support bunk to protect the frame during unloading.
In the case of side underrun protection, the side protection plate is combined with the tank protection and our subcontractor's underrun protection boards as options. In the rear underrun protection, the material options are steel and our subcontractor's anodized aluminium.
The tank shields effectively protect the tanks from falling trees during loading and unloading, for example. A side underrun protection plate covering the side can be connected to the tank cover.
Muffler cover made of aluminium.
TAV and VBG models from our subcontractors are available as options for coupling equipment. Safe, reliable and user-friendly coupling heads and drawbeams fit all frame models.
The heat resistance controlled from the cabin of Rempsu's aluminium-framed sanding gears prevents the sand and feed rollers from freezing. The sanding gear can be mounted directly on the subframe or on a support bracket attached to the subframe.
Thanks to the frame decks, the platform remains protected from hits, dirt, water and snow. Removable frame decks are made of plastic, plywood or hardened aluminium. The walking deck at the front of the crane bracket is made of hardened aluminium, which is sturdy and durable in all conditions.
Lots of different models, sizes and mounting options depending on the need and equipment. We install all work lights, headlights, indicator lights, LED lights and reflectors.
Different sizes and mounting options according to the need for use. Toolboxes can be installed in combination with, for example, hinged ladders and stepboards.
The ladders and step boards can be mounted on the subframe separately or in combination with, for example, a toolbox or an oil cooler bracket. Different sizes with fixed and hinged models as options.
TYRE PRESSURE CONTROL SYSTEMS
We import, assembly and maintain TIREBOSS™ CTI systems. TIREBOSS™ is designed to control tyre pressures and eases driving on soft roads. By lowering the tyre pressure the weight of the vehicle is distributed over a larger surface area which prevents the vehicle sinking on soft roads. Tyre pressure control system is operated from the cabin ensuring easy control of the optimal pressures.
