Two new in Hiab Z-series
By Laura Hatton08 June 2015
Hiab, part of Cargotec, has added two new models to its Z-series of hydraulic truck mounted cranes with the launch of the Z-HiPro 191 and Z-Pro 171.
The models can be folded into a Z position and parked behind the driver's cab with tools still attached, the manufacturer said. The new design also means that it is now much easier for the driver to cover the load during transport and comply with the latest legislation.
Carl Gustaf Göransson, Hiab senior vice president, sales and markets, said, “With the launch of the Z-series, we are filling yet another important gap and broadening our product range. This is an important step for us in our ambition to become the industry benchmark in customer satisfaction.
“The Z-series cranes are 'generalists', and suitable for any task imaginable - you could call them the ‘Swiss army knife’ of cranes. They have been developed with our customers’ needs clearly in mind, providing fast and precise control. With a tough design that reinforces the legendary Hiab quality, they deliver consistent and reliable productivity,” Göransson added.
Hans Ohlsson, Hiab director for medium range cranes, said, “The compact design of the Z-series allows an easy fit onto modern compact trucks with limited installation space. The cranes are fast and precise thanks to the features of the new HiPro control systems and the well-tuned hydraulic system producing high pressure oil flow. They are well prepared for intensive work cycles, particularly when high speed is required, and simultaneously provide high precision.”
