As a versatile implement carrier and powerful transporter, the Multicar M31 combines multifunctionality, economic efficiency and manoeuvrability with a compact design. The vehicle also delivers a convincing performance in terms of safety and comfort. The ergonomically optimised space-frame cabin is equipped with unique and DEKRA-certified safety features, its extra-large windows allowing a perfect view onto the traffic on the road and the tools. As a genuine all-rounder designed according to Hako’s “One for All“ principle and equipped with three connection points, the Multicar M31 can be used for a wide range of applications with 300 different attachment combinations. This is what we call “quality made in Germany” – which has been out motto for over 50 years now. 

  • High levels of driving comfort thanks to individually suspended wheels
  • Modular vehicle concept with four basic models
  • Extremely comfortable working for the driver
  • Individual optional equipment for increased efficiency and comfort
  • Euro VI: emissions are reduced by over 90 % 

Maximum multifunctionality

Equipped with three connection points for a wide range of different attachments, the Multicar M31 is a genuinely multifunctional vehicle. The front lift – equipped with an attachment mounting plate – is integrated in the chassis, allowing the use of highly efficient front attachments. Thanks to the quick-change system, the Multicar M31 can be re-tooled for every seasonal application. 

Extremely efficient and economical

Thanks to its flexible, high-quality light-steel frame, the Multicar M31 is particularly durable – and allows continuous operation. A powerful yet low-consumption turbo diesel engine provides the optimum drive. The all-wheel-drive function can be switched off to ensure even more favourable consumption values, which in turn reduces your operating costs. The vehicle’s high top speed ensures reduced travel times and optimised operating times. 

This vehicle meets every demand

The Multicar M31 has been designed with much attention to detail in order to make your work routine easier, every single day. Its small width of only 163 cm, the small turning circle, as well as the power steering (standard) allow easy and safe manoeuvring of the vehicle even in confined areas. Both the all-wheel drive and crawler gear functions can be activated when needed, allowing the Multicar M31 to adapt to the conditions on hand and increase its efficiency. 

Operation and safety

Perfectly adapted to the driver’s individual needs

Plenty of room for all those little things: The glove box, different storage compartments and a bottle holder ensure a tidy interior. And there is also plenty of space for the driver – despite the vehicle’s compact exterior dimensions. 

Everything within easy reach: Both the operating elements and displays are centrally arranged. The LED switches provide an optimal overview. The operating element controlling the mobile hydraulics is integrated in the armrest (hydrostat model: into the control lever). 

Everything at a glance: Just one glance at the intuitive, multifunctional display provides the driver with all important information regarding the current operating status of the Multicar M31.

Increased driving comfort: Power steering, cruise control, superior cross-country ability, and a comprehensive range of assistance systems make everyday work easier. Optional equipment: electric windows as well as electric and heated mirrors (left and right). 

Perfect for frequently changing drivers

  • Seats with several adjustment options
  • Height-adjustable safety belt
  • Steering column adjustable in height and angle

First-class view: The panoramic windscreen with an integrated sun glare filter provides a perfect all-round view as well as a very good view onto the front attachments. Thanks to the large wind-up windows, optimised wipers and additional windows in the lower door area, the driver can keep an eye on his surroundings at all times. 

Highest levels of safety: To maximise the driver’s safety, DEKRA carries out safety tests according to ECE-R 29 and ECE-R 13 on a regular basis. 

Additional safety factors, as applied in lorry construction:

  • Collision-tested space-frame cabin
  • All-wheel drive
  • Disc brakes
  • Hydrostat ABS
  • Daytime running light as a standard
  • Large reflectors
  • Double-shell doors made of stress-tested steel and plastic components
Vehicle design and engine

Sophisticated technology

Easy maintenance, fast servicing: Thanks to the tiltable cabin and the three-way tipper, all components are easily accessible and maintenance work can be carried out quickly and reliably. 

Variable hydraulics: From simple tipper hydraulics to stationary hydraulics and LS mobile hydraulics – with comfort control and high-pressure switchover. 

For different front attachments: Front lift with an attachment mounting plate functioning as a front attachment quick-change system with lifting, lowering and swivel functions. 

Increased comfort and safety thanks to the vehicle’s variable hydrostatic braking power (standard). 

Powerful, low-emission FPT turbo diesel engine: Total towing weight up to 7.5 t, payload up to 3.1 t and a braked towing capacity of up to 3.5 t. Exhaust gas cleaning system: Selective Catalytic Reduction. The combination of particle filters and SCRT system reduces nitrogen oxides by over 90 % and particles by more than 95 %.

Balanced driving and safe road-holding characteristics both fully laden and unladen, thanks to independently suspended wheels with coil springs at the front and progressive leaf springs with telescopic shock absorbers at the rear. 

Fast mounting of superstructures onto the loading bed, the tipper cross members or the ball system. 

Basic models

Always the right model for every application

Four basic types of the Multicar M31 model are available. Depending on your individual requirements and the job on hand, you can select different features and equipment options. This is made possible by the consistently modular vehicle concept we apply when developing our Multicars. You can choose between a short and a long wheel base, 4x2 and 4x4 drives, 2- or 3-seater cabins and many more additional options increasing the vehicle’s economic efficiency, working comfort and safety.
