Utility Crane - Unmatched Safety & Precision

Utility Crane and Equipment

Utility operations bring a need for specific equipment. HIAB offers utility cranes, truck mounted forklifts, hooklifts, and material handler equipment to help you get the job done right. We know that utility cranes are essential for a wide range of construction and maintenance tasks. And when it comes to utility cranes, no one does it better than a Hiab Knuckle Boom Crane. 

Utility Crane

HIAB knuckleboom utility cranes can handle all products without the need of additional equipment, optimizing the budget and productivity of your fleet. With a greater lifting capacity, extra reach, precise boom control, and a reliable hydraulic operation, a HIab utility crane is a versatile and flexible solution for the utility industry.

Truck Mounted Forklifts

The MOFFETT has revolutionized distribution and supply chain management in the utility, electric power, and telecommunications industries. From dropping loaded cable reels at local service centers to delivering and placing transformers directly on construction sites, the MOFFETT brings superior versatility and flexibility to this industry.

Material Handler Loaders

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


MULTILIFT hooklifts can handle all utilities materials with ultimate efficiency, speed, and reliability. Designed and built with superior high-strength steel on a lightweight frame, the daily payload is maximized, which is critical to this industry. 

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.
