Indian truck manufacturer Ashok Leyland has ordered 250 hydraulic loader cranes from crane builder Hiab.

The Hiab 088 models will be mounted on Ashok Leyland Super Stallion 8 x 8 high mobility vehicles (HMV) for the Indian Army. They are an important part of the renewal of the Indian Army logistics vehicle fleet, Hiab said.

Deliveries of the 8 tonne-metre loader cranes start in May 2016 and continue until October 2017.
