Road Crane for Trench Plates & Highway Maintenance

Road Crane & Highway Maintenance Equipment

Having the ability to set trench plates of all sizes and complete highway maintenance projects allow companies to remain competitive. To win contracts and make profit, companies need to stay within budget and keep downtime to a minimum, while maintaining a safe working environment. With a variety of models designed specifically to meet the demands of these industries, HIAB knuckleboom cranes are the ultimate road crane solution.

Unlike stiff boom cranes, a HIAB crane is a one-man operation, providing a comprehensive, flexible, and versatile method. Mounted behind the cab, its unique fold-away design does not take up valuable payload space. The HIAB crane’s high lifting capacity to low weight ratio allows for a higher payload, while maintaining a safe and efficient operation. With more maneuverability and versatility than traditional methods, a HIAB road crane is an unprecedented solution for any trench setting and highway maintenance project.
