Hiab Launches Recycling Crane | Construction News

Hiab, part of Cargotec, has launched its latest innovation in recycling cranes, the new Jonsered 1500RZ, meant for handling scrap metal and heavy-duty recycling. 

"One of the megatrends is urbanization. More and more people are moving in the cities and this sets high expectations for waste handling and recycling. The new Jonsered recycling crane is designed for speedy operations which is essential in urban environments," says Jon Lopez, vice president of forestry and recycling cranes at Hiab. 

The new Jonsered 1500RZ supports lower lifetime costs, as fuel consumption is reduced with the variable pump system.

The maximum lifting capacity of the new recycling crane is 99,815 lb. ft., and its outreach exceeds 29'6".

The safety features include Variable Stability Limit (VSL) for increased crane stability, Over Load Protection to avoid crane overloading as well as Load Holding Valve to prevent load dropping. The Operator Protection System protects the driver by preventing the crane from accessing the operator area. 

"The new Jonsered 1500RZ crane is designed for total flexibility in operation. The customer can adapt it according to the business needs and choose between top seat, side-mounted top seat or stand-up platform with radio control. To ensure that the crane is well protected in harsh environments, it is painted with the advanced nDurance surface protection system," says Toni Ahvenlampi, Senior Manager, Portfolio Management, Forestry Cranes.


Lift & Access is part of the Catalyst Communications Network publication family.
