CARGOTEC CORPORATION, TRADE PRESS RELEASE, TUESDAY 17TH APRIL 2012 AT 11:00 AM (EEST)
At the RAI Exhibition (April 17-21) in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Cargotec will preview its new and innovative crane, Hiab XS 544 HiPro. It will be possible to order the crane at the end of 2012 when it will be fully launched.
"We are very proud of our new crane and what it can do for our customers' business performance," says Sergio Peiró, Product Manager Hiab Loader Cranes, Heavy range, at Cargotec.
The Hiab XS 544 HiPro is the latest in Cargotec's heavy range segment and has been developed to meet the market's high demands on productivity, economy, reduced lifetime cost and fast return on investment. The Hiab XS 544 HiPro has a series of unique performance features, for instance, a new improved boom system to minimize deflection, new improved sequence cylinders and endless slewing. Hiab XS 544 HiPro thus offers a short and fast route to working position. The capacity is 52 tm and the crane has an outreach up to35 metres with a jib. The innovative Hiab XS 544 HiPro has a robust design that is durable and requires minimal maintenance and service. What is also noteworthy is the crane's speed and precision even at full outreach.
The Hiab XS 544 HiPro includes features such as Pump Flow Distribution (PFD), which supports the speed and precision of the crane, and Automatic Speed Control (ASC), which in cooperation with PFD increases capacity by 15 percent.
