Cities & Municipalities - Unmatched Load Handling Safety

Hiab At Work - Cities & Municipalities

Urban areas are often a challenge to navigate, whether navigating traffic or maneuvering large and bulky equipment. At HIAB, we offer the highest quality city cranes, truck-mounted forklifts, material handlers, and hooklifts to make these tasks easier. With our products, you can transport materials safely around tight corners, up steep ramps and through narrow streets with ease.

City Crane - Knuckle Boom Cranes

Designed to be reliable and strong, a HIAB city crane provides great versatility and can be combined with multiple attachments, allowing products to be handled without additional equipment. Cutting-edge technology allows the crane to have the best precision, power, and control, ensuring an efficient delivery in the safest environment.

Truck Mounted Forklift

The versatility, all terrain capability, and high strength to weight ratio of the MOFFETT make it the perfect solution for municipalities. The truck mounted forklift enables easy and efficient handling of traffic barriers, event spaces, trench retainment, jersey barriers, signage, and much more.

Material Handler Crane

HIAB loaders offer the flexibility needed to work smoothly with the local infrastructure of the municipality operations. Rugged and reliable, these loaders bring an unprecedented level of safety for operators and deliver lower total cost of ownership to city fleets.


MULTILIFT hooklifts provide the ultimate versatility, efficiency, speed, and safety to municipalities and airports. The hooklift is a superior product that delivers excellent flexibility for your fleet, expanding the capabilities without increasing fleet size. MULTILIFT allows one truck to be used for all tasks, regardless of season or job, maximizing productivity and reliability year round.

Knuckle Boom Crane Features

HiConnect Remote Connectivity

HIAB HiConnect™ is a web-based dashboard that displays insights on equipment usage, location, time in operation, idle time, and productivity level. By enabling new insights, it helps you to further increase efficiency, productivity, and safety. HiConnect is the latest technology in terms of connectivity capabilities. Being able to remotely access data is key to maximizing your business with facts instead of assumptions. HiConnect maintains constant contact with all units, giving fleet managers the ability to stop unsafe behavior and usage before an incident happens. With the ability to view service history and plan upcoming services, your fleet has minimum downtime and increases daily efficiencies.

Truck Mounted Forklift Features

Remote Ground Mount

Remote Ground Mount (RGM) allows the operator to completely mount or dismount the MOFFETT without the need to climb onto or off of an elevated forklift. With up to a 25' range, the wireless remote control allows the operator to stand away from the machine and traffic during the mounting and dismounting process. This means staying out of the line of traffic or other jobsite hazards while giving optimal visibility during the mounting/dismounting process.

Material Handler Loader Features

Operator Safety and Comfort

Hiab Loaders top seat area has been designed with operator safety in mind. The operator area is surrounded with safety rails, and the premium top seat is comfortable, ergonomic, and easy to access. The seat has wide range of adjustments, allowing it to be adjusted to the ideal working position. All standard operations are at arm's reach from the top seat, offering easy access to the stabilizer controls, truck start/stop, e-stop, and work light controls.


Electric Cab Controls

All MULTILIFT systems are outfitted with electric cab controls as a standard feature, not an upgrade.
