CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 20 SEPTEMBER 2016 AT 12.00 AM EEST
Hiab, part of Cargotec, has renewed its mid-range loader cranes with 24 new or updated models. The new mid-range cranes are the answer for the growing market of 20 tonne-metre segment and available with full selection of HIAB control systems, either manual or remote.
"Customer insight is at the heart of Hiab R&D. It's all about adding customer value and solving their problems. Safety, reliability, durability and ease of use are Hiab's top priorities, which are helping the customers run their businesses efficiently. A prime example of this strong focus on innovation is the current update of our mid-range loader crane portfolio. We are delighted to be presenting the renewed cranes at the IAA exhibition," says Joakim Andersson, Senior Vice President, Loader Cranes, Hiab.
"The updated cranes come with innovative features that make crane operation simpler, safer and more productive. Crane Tip Control minimises the complexity of coordinating the crane for the operator and Load Stability System ensures the safe usage of the crane. Semi Automatic Folding makes it possible to park or activate the crane semiautomatically, which simplifies one of the most difficult operations when working with a loader crane," explains Hans E. Ohlsson, Director, Medium Range Loader Cranes, Hiab.
The new cranes are at their maximum 300kg lighter than Hiab's previous ones, which means an equal amount of extra payload for the customer. "Advanced remote control system, the new V200 valve and updated hydraulics are all adding further value for the customer," Ohlsson concludes.
Welcome to see the HIAB loader cranes together with other Hiab innovations at the IAA exhibition, in Hannover Germany, on 22-29 September, at our stand P35. Hiab's press event is held on Thursday 22 September at 1 p.m. CEST at the stand. More information is available at iaa.hiab.com.
