With HIABs electric power take off (ePTO) system you can work without exhaust frumes and disturbing noise from the engine. This allows you to work in areas where people live nearby, in urban environments, in tunnels or even indoors. You can also extend the hours to evening or nighttime in order to match your customers demands. The work situation for the operator will of course also be improved. Lifting capacity is maintained but operating costs are up to 70 percent lower.
ePTO leads to a much healthier and safer operational environment without affecting the crane’s power, precision or stability.
Adopting safer and healthier working practices with ePTO can have a positive knock-on effect on your business and help profile you as a forward-thinking company that respects the environment.
Transport and construction companies are under pressure from regulators and the public to provide cleaner, quieter and more environmentally friendly solutions in their businesses. It’s a challenging period but, as ePTO shows, we are thinking ahead and ensuring that our technology is readily available to help you move forward.
The crane is powered electrically by a plug-in- system (ePTO), which means that it can be operated when the engine is switched off; it’s ideally suited to sensitive environments and for indoor use. The ePTO is with the latest Lithium-ion battery technology.
The ePTO runs on a battery which gives a better working environment. Its silent operation makes it perfect for urban and night-time deliveries.
With ePTO you can increase your deliveries with night time deliveries as the truck and crane will be in silent operation.
"I am indeed very proud to have the first ePTO HIAB electric crane in France, at SPIE. After a year of using that first ePTO electric crane in our fleet, we realise we consume a lot less fuel....if we compare it to a traditional vehicle, the cost of use is 30% lower."
Fleet Manager, SPIE CityNetworks North-East
The feedback we get day-to-day from operators and the people that managing those business is that the products is well received."

"If someone had told me three years ago, that I would be driving an eco-friendly car, I would not have thought of a battery driven crane. I´ve had to reconsider that this actually is very beneficial for the environment. Not just for me and my working situation. - We make a difference."
Andreas Gideonsson, Crane operator, Bjännsjö Kranar
"We selected HIAB´s electrically powered system ePTO to reduce our environmental impact and to create a better working environment. The best thing about using HIAB´s ePTO is that you can turn of the diesel motor and talk with co-workers or customers, and continue working as efficiently as normal."
Robin Feller, founder of Pink Cargo, Stockholm, Sweden
"We have a social conscious, it's the duty to everybody to make our environment a cleaner place to live in. So we believe in that we should be the pioneers for that and drive it forward."
