Press Release Hiab Cargotec

Hiab at Bauma will showcase building and construction equipment



Hiab, part of Cargotec Corporation, is a leading supplier of load handling solutions in the construction industry. The company reinforces its leading position on a daily basis, by helping customers to overcome the challenges in their businesses, by increasing safety, durability, reliability and ease of use of Hiab load handling equipment.

Delivery of building materials is a demanding task. The materials must be brought safely to the right place at the right time. In Bauma, Hiab will meet with customers to discuss the future needs of the construction industry.

Efficient and confident delivery to yards, of palletised, bundled or stacked building materials
Building sites are busy places, featuring rough and muddy terrain where safety is a priority. The Hiab Moffett M4 truck-mounted forklift can be carried on the rear of virtually any truck or trailer combination, and is ready to unload materials in less than one minute.

The Hiab Moffett M4 range provides the solution to transferring loads of up to 2.5 tons. With the ability to work on paved surfaces and on off-road conditions, it can help to reduce annual transport costs. The Hiab Moffett M4 is an important asset in applications such as the delivery of building materials, plasterboard, brick & block and timber, as well as windows and doors.

Safe and precise delivery and installation of large parts, scaffolds and windows
A loader crane helps to deliver and install goods, while eliminating the need for intermediate stock on the construction site. Hiab's solutions for such applications have been designed with safety and efficiency in mind.

Hiab's new 51 tm crane, the Hiab XS 544, offers better load handling, with greater versatility and a reduced environmental impact. Functions such as HiPro, continuous slewing and a variable pump make the Hiab XS 544 even better at working in tough conditions with retained stability, high capacity and improved fuel economy.

Easy and flexible transport of demolition material and soil
Hiab offers demountables, where one truck can perform different tasks by using different body and container types. The Hiab Multilift XR 7S is specially designed to make light commercial vehicles capable of performing extra tasks - all the customer needs to do is swap the body and go!

The Hiab Multilift XR 7S is a light-range demountable that utilises a low hook height and offers excellent lifting performance, with full functionality in loading and unloading the body and for tipping. An exceptional low weight/high strength ratio enables larger payloads, improves the versatility of the vehicle and maximises its rentability.
