Hiab, part of Cargotec, adds two additional capacity classes to its renewed HIAB T-Series which includes cranes from 0.9 to 3.5 tonne metre lift capacity.
The new cranes are the HIAB T-009, the smallest powerhouse in the range, and the HIAB T-018, a popular size for many different operations. Built for easy mounting on pickups and light trucks, the cranes are used in a vast variety of applications where loading and unloading of equipment and material is required close to a workplace.
“We are very happy to complete the HIAB T-Series with these two cranes. The first new cranes in the renewed range were launched last year and have been very well received in the market. The T-series represents the HIAB quality, reliability and robustness while featuring the latest technology, like nDuranceTM, SmartControl and hybrid drive, that really puts these cranes in pole position. They are light cranes with strong advantages,” says Patrik Kvarnlöf, Director, Light Range – Loader Cranes, Hiab.
The cranes have a number of features enhancing quality and everyday operation, such as a cast base that is durable and completely sealed to help maintain the quality of the lubricant. The cranes are painted according to the high-tech nDuranceTM painting process to safeguard a long life and a good looking crane over time.
The T-Series cranes can be operated on electricity alone, which limits noise in operation and reduces fuel consumption. The power pack is charged whenever the truck engine is running. The SmartControl remote control system adds safety and enables simultaneous crane movements, in addition to providing high precision for manoeuvring and positioning goods for operators who want flexibility and total control.
“There is a light strong crane for every need in the new T-series. Just select your control system, capacity and the optional features required for the job. The many variants of frames make it also easy to do tailor-made installation,” Kvarnlöf comments.
The new HIAB T-018 crane, featuring HiDuo control system and SmartControl remote control, and the HIAB T-009 will be on display at Bauma Exhibition in Munich, Germany on 11-17 April 2016, stands FN. 921/4 and FN. 1024/1.
