Frequently Asked Questions

What size material handler do I need?

To determine this, ask yourself, how heavy is the material you are lifting and how far do you need to reach? These two answers will narrow the selection. Hiab offers a wide selection of material handler sizes.

What boom style should I choose?

If you want to stow the boom over the cargo area, an S-boom will be the one for you. If you're wanting to keep the boom out of the cargo area, a Z-boom will be the best choice.

What grapple do I need?

The material you are handling will determine the type of grapple needed. For example, timber requires a bypass grapple, waste and storm debris may need an orange peel grapple. There are many types of grapples to choose from. Working with an industry expert can help narrow the selection.
