Three new small Hiabs
By Alex Dahm31 March 2009
Knuckle boom crane manufacturer Hiab has launched three new models in the 2 to 4 tonne-metre range.
The XS 022, 033 and 044 are described by the manufacturer as being "compact with superior performance in their capacity range." Simplicity is another feature, Hiab said. They are suitable for mounting on lighter vehicles and the vertical placement of the control levers leaves more room for the load.
They have a cast base for better stress distribution, strength and longer life. Up to four extensions are available according to model. Standard are the CLX, Duo or HiDuo control systems.
"Hiab XS 022, 033 and 044 cranes are made to be a perfect working companion in daily work. Thanks to the XS modularity, even for these small cranes, the range of possible applications is more or less limitless", said Marcel Boxem, acting Hiab product manager.
