HIAB's new light range loader crane
Hiab has launched its renewed HIAB light range loader cranes with a capacity from 4 to 11 T. Four options for remote and manual control systems are available.

"When we started the development of this HIAB loader crane series, we wanted to ensure that the renewed equipment will make work easier for the operators, keep it safe and increase efficiency, as we have learned that these are our customers' priorities when choosing a loader crane," says Jan Vink, director, light range loader cranes, Hiab. "The unique X-4 SPACE system on the light range loader cranes enables the operator to handle the crane with the greatest ease and with higher load cycling speeds."

As the HIAB light cranes are made with durable high-tensile steel, they combine low weight with the capacity to deliver heavy loads. Also, an external display gives a better overview of the active crane and service status. Depending on the choice of control system, a range of features are available for improving capacity, durability, flexibility, as well as safety. These features include a semi-automatic folding system, load stability system and remote control system.

"To avoid unnecessary downtime in our end customers' operations, HIAB light cranes are designed for easier everyday maintenance. Key parts and components that require regular attention are located where they are easy to access. A good example is the integrated oil tank in the crane base, which can be installed without rearranging truck components and is quicker and simpler to reach.

"Also, these new models can be configured with various options, to enable easy mounting on the truck chassis. The whole installation is designed for the lowest possible overall weight," Vink continues.

The light range loader cranes come with a two-year warranty as well as a five-year warranty for the steel structure.

"Over the past two years, we have renewed successfully both our medium-range cranes and now light range cranes," says Joakim Andersson, Senior vice president, loader cranes, Hiab. "The positive feedback from our customers ensures that we are on the right path with our development work."
