Glass Lifting Crane & Handler for Delivery & Installation

Glass Handling Equipment

Glass handling equipment is necessary to help safely transport, store and use glass components. Using the right equipment ensures that fragile glass items will remain undamaged during transport and use. It also helps to protect the user from potential injury due to broken glass.

To get the most out of your glass handling equipment, it is important to choose the right type for your needs. HIAB offers glass lifting cranes and truck mounted forklifts to help with all of glass handling needs.

Glass Lifting Crane

Handling of glass must be done with fluid movements and accurate placement to ensure optimum safety and lift execution. HIAB knuckle boom cranes have been designed and built from the ground up to provide the best operation precision and load handling characteristics in their class. Paired with low crane weight, high lifting capacities and Hiab’s industry leading safety features, stability and load stability management systems, there’s no better knuckle-boom for glass handling operations. Mounted behind the cab or on the rear, the unique fold-away design does not take up valuable payload space enabling the crane vehicle to double up as the lift item transport vehicle. Hiab Glass Lifting Cranes provide a safer, more versatile and more efficient glass handling solution.

Glass Handler Truck Mounted Forklifts

Precision is paramount in the Glass handling industry. The MOFFETT and its hydrostatic drive system offers unrivaled controllability. At the plant, glass racks are loaded onto trailers ready for delivery to distributor or job site locations. Once on site, the MOFFETT is used to carefully deliver loaded racks onto docks, through doors or around a challenging job site. As the market leader in truck mounted forklifts for over 40 years, Hiab continually invests in industry research and product development with a philosophy of “machines for applications.” Transported on the rear of straight trucks or trailers a Moffett can be mounted or dismounted in less than a minute. When it comes to ensuring a smooth and efficient implementation of the toughest tasks, the MOFFETT lets your driver safely do more in less time.

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.
