An 80 tonne-metre model has been added to Hiab’s high capacity range of articulating hydraulic cranes.

Deliveries have started of the Hiab X-HiPro 858 which offers an horizontal outreach of 34.5 metres and 38 m on the vertical. It is designed for versatility, to be suitable for many applications.

A remote control display is fitted on the transmitter and an additional external display is mounted on the base. It allows the driver to see crane capacity information for each angle of the jib, depending upon the stability of the truck.

Customer Josep Salavedra Ciurana, at Transgruas J. Salavedra in Spain, where the heavy crane series is developed and built, said, “From a commercial viewpoint, the Hiab X-HiPro is a sound business proposition. Given the versatility of the fixing system it means I can now use the same truck for two or three different applications. It reduces the investment in different trucks and also indirect costs, like maintenance, for my business. It’s also important to have a trusted business partner like Hiab. I have always found that Hiab personnel try hard to meet my needs precisely and the support of the local team here in Spain is excellent."
