HIAB K-505 HiPro
Hiab has launched a specialised drywall crane, HIAB K-505 HiPro, for the US and Canadian markets. It is the longest and strongest drywall crane from HIAB to date, with a reach of nine floors and a lifting capacity of almost 300,000 ft?lbf.

The newly launched HIAB K-505 HiPro is also the heaviest of HIAB’s drywall cranes and complements HIAB’s other drywall cranes, K-HiPro 285 and K-HiPro 425, with a reach of four and six stories, respectively.  

All HIAB drywall cranes are equipped with the HIAB HiPro remote control, which gives operators more flexibility in finding the best working space and field of vision. HiPro brings features such as LSS (Load Stability System) for vertical movements, VSLplus (Variable Stability Logic Plus) and ASC (Automatic Speed Control) that improve operator safety and productivity.

"HIAB K-505 HiPro allows our customers to be more productive than ever as it can install drywalls rapidly in buildings up to nine stories high. The technological advanced features and remote control let even less experienced operators get a smooth and precise response from their cranes. As it’s connected, fleet owners have the option of receiving performance data to optimise their vehicle fleet and service alerts based on actual usage," says Marcel Boxem, director - heavy range, Hiab.
