Drywall Cranes & Truck Mounted Drywall Forklifts


HIAB At Work - Drywall

Drywall Crane

Operators throughout North America have acclaimed HIAB K-HiPro 285-3, 425K-4, and 505K-2-4 as the best cranes on the market for the delivery of drywall and building materials. These cranes have been designed and built from the ground up to provide low crane weight, high lifting capacities, and the best load handling characteristics in their class.

HIAB’s K-HiPro next generation cranes perfectly cover all of today’s drywall delivery requirements. With different models, vertical reach can be from 4 story to 9 story, all with the best in class ground drop horizontal reach capacity. Our industry first operation technology simplifies operation and stabilizes the load, all while optimizing crane geometry and capacity. HIAB knuckle boom cranes will have drywall deliveries running more efficiently and reliably than any other cranes on the market.

Truck Mounted Drywall Forklift

Today’s commercial and residential job sites have become more challenging due to increased traffic, tighter turnarounds, and limited access delivery sites. While conventional boom trucks may struggle accessing certain sites, the MOFFETT Truck Mounted Forklift allows the delivery truck to park remotely and, within a minute the MOFFETT is on the ground, ready to conquer site challenges such as rough terrain, heavy tree coverage, and basement/back door deliveries.

Both M8 and M9 models have the added ability to travel sideways down driveways, through tight parking lots, and even into buildings. Both feature our groundbreaking remote ground mount system, while our M9 features a FreeliftTM Mast and low profile design. The low profile FreeliftTM mast offers an overall height of 79”, providing ample clearance for delivering and stacking into residential garages, through commercial buildings and onto parking decks of multi-story buildings. This reduces manual handling and creates a faster delivery turnaround time with less disruption on the job site. Adding a MOFFETT to your drywall delivery fleet, ensures that all your drywall delivery requirements are covered.

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.
