Higher speed and greater productivity are primary benefits of Hiab's new XS 855 loader crane, the manufacturer said.

Large outreach and fast extension are features designed to boost operating speed, productivity and profit.

The 80 tonne-metre XS 855 is available with up to 10 hydraulic extensions plus up to six hydraulic extensions in the EP boom system. Reach extends to a lifting height of more than 30 m for the E-8 with a Jib 145X. Combining the E-6 or E-7 with a Jib 175X delivers more power.

"The XS 855 increases speed by over 30% and lifts productivity by over 20%," said Sergio Peiró, product manager, high capacity cranes in Zaragoza, Spain. "The major benefits for our European, Asian and American users are the long outreach and vertical high performance provided by the new Hiab 855," Peiró continued.

The new crane, the second largest in the Hiab range, has a modified hydraulic system that increases cylinder speed and raises productivity. Target applications include construction, transport, maintenance and installation markets.

Orders can be placed from mid-December for deliveries starting in the first quarter 2009.
