Hiab, part of Cargotec, has added two more capacity classes to its renewed Hiab T-Series line of cranes, which includes models rated from 0.9 to 3.5 tonne meters.

The new cranes are the Hiab T-009, the smallest powerhouse in the range, and the Hiab T-018, a popular size for many different operations.

Built for easy mounting on pickups and light trucks, the cranes are used in a variety of applications where loading and unloading of equipment and material is required close to a workplace.

"We are very happy to complete the Hiab T-Series with these two cranes. The first new cranes in the renewed range were launched last year and have been very well received in the market," says Patrik Kvarnlöf, Hiab's director for light-range loader cranes. "The T-series represents the Hiab quality, reliability, and robustness, while featuring the latest technology, like nDurance, SmartControl, and hybrid drive, that really puts these cranes in pole position. They are light cranes with strong advantages," says Kvarnlöf.

The cranes feature a cast base that is durable and completely sealed to help maintain the quality of the lubricant. Their high-tech Durance painting process safeguards a long life and keeps them looking good over time. 

The T-Series cranes can be operated on electricity alone, which limits noise in operation and reduces fuel consumption. The power pack is charged whenever the truck engine is running. The SmartControl remote-control system adds safety and enables simultaneous crane movements, in addition to providing high precision for maneuvring and positioning goods for operators who want flexibility and total control.

"There is a light strong crane for every need in the new T-series. Just select your control system, capacity, and optional features required for the job. The many variants of frames make it also easy to do tailor-made installation," Kvarnlöf said. 

The new Hiab T-018 crane, featuring HiDuo control system and SmartControl remote control, and the Hiab T-009 will be on display at the Bauma exhibition in Munich, Germany, April 11-17, 2016, stands FN. 921/4 and FN. 1024/1.
