Logistics firm Wincanton chooses Hiab loader cranes

By Ian Vallely06 January 2017

Hiab, part of Cargotec, has received an order for several Hiab L-HiPro 145 loader cranes from Wincanton.

The value of the order is around €1 million, Hiab said. Wincanton is a major third-party logistics and supply chain solutions provider in the UK and Ireland.

Hiab's L-HiPro 145 is from the medium range of loader cranes and is a new model made for building material supply. It is rated at 15 tonne-metres.

Three of the cranes will have Crane Tip Control (CTC), a software feature Hiab brought to market in September 2016. With CTC, the crane operator controls the behaviour of the crane tip instead of each crane function (slewing, first boom, second boom, extensions).

The new cranes will be delivered during the first quarter of 2017. Hiab offers its loader cranes customers a five-year warranty on structural components in addition to a general warranty of two years. The extended warranty covers all Hiab loader crane models delivered since 1 October 2016.
