Hiab's new solutions slash crane mounting time
Hiab has launched two new modular installation systems for truck bodies: Hiab BodyWorks for heavy cranes and Hiab T-Body for HIAB T-series light range cranes. The modules are pre-manufactured and reduce body installation times and costs. Both have a weld-free bolted construction with parts that are easy to remove and replace.

The T-Body can be used for the installation of any T-009 to T-038 cranes on L2 and L3 length chassis.

"When customers buy a crane, they want it on the road as soon as possible, while bodybuilders want to serve as many customers as possible. Our new modular installation system for truck bodies reduces installation time significantly and the weld-free construction makes them quicker to install and easier to maintain," says Marcel Boxem, director, heavy loader cranes and FrameWorks.

"With HIAB FrameWorks, we reduced the installation times of frames for our heavy range cranes (by) 75% and now we reduce the installation time needed for bodies (by) 75%. Using T-Body, a HIAB T-series light range crane can be installed in only four hours."

Hiab BodyWorks also claims to reduce the vehicle body installation time by 75%. Hiab claims its solution is significantly lighter than alternatives, without compromising the durability of the parts.

Hiab BodyWorks is only compatible with Hiab FrameWorks, the pre-manufactured ready-to-install subframe. Installation is done at the Factory Installation Centre in Meppel, Netherlands, which serves customers from all over Europe.
