Hiab strengthens its loader crane portfolio with new, pioneering building material crane models

September 12, 2018  By Hiab

Hiab, part of Cargotec, is launching its new building material crane models at the IAA exhibition, which will be held in Hannover, Germany from Sept. 20 to 27. The new HIAB building material cranes offer the most advanced remote control system in the industry, the HIAB HiPro, as well as Hiab’s pioneering features, to ensure safe and fast crane operation.

“Every construction business faces unique demands. When we developed these new crane models our customers’ needs on construction sites were the guiding factor in our research and development work. At Hiab, safety always comes first and that is why these cranes feature Hiab’s innovative Crane Tip Control (CTC), which lets even novice operators perform complicated movements to deliver the load from point A to point B, simply and safely. The Load Stability System automatically compensates for unintentionally excessive lever operation, protecting the operator, the surrounding environment and the crane,” explains Hans Ohlsson, director of medium range cranes for Hiab. 

The capacity of the building material cranes varies from 13 to 20tm. The high-speed extensions enable long outreach and ensure faster operation. “The end result is a HIAB crane that offers the operator the possibility of delivering more during the day,” Ohlsson says.

All new models are equipped with Hiab’s well-known steering options. For the HIAB L-HiPro 145, L-HiPro 195 and L-HiPro 235 models, Hiab offers the most advanced remote control system in the industry, the HIAB HiPro.


“The HiPro offers the highest speed and precision. It  has been designed to provide ultra-quick and ultra-smooth response and is able to support a high number of simultaneous movements,” Ohlsson says.

Like all HIAB cranes, the new building material crane models have also been designed for easier day-to-day maintenance. Key parts and components requiring regular attention are easily accessible. Hiab offers the largest service network in the industry and ensures fast and professional maintenance of HIAB cranes when needed.
