CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 8 FEBRUARY 2016 AT 2.30 PM EET
Hiab, part of Cargotec, will present its latest innovations in Bauma Exhibition in Munich, Germany on April 11-17 2016. New launches from LOGLIFT forestry cranes, MULTILIFT demountables as well as from HIAB loader cranes will be presented on our stands FN. 921/4 and FN. 1024/1. Hiab also hosts a press event to discover more about the future of load handling on Wednesday 13 April.
In Bauma, we will showcase our electric MOFFETT E4 truck-mounted forklift with no emissions and very low noise levels. Additionally, in the World Crane Championship qualifications we will use the ePTO, which allows the loader crane to be powered electrically by a plug-in system, instead of the vehicle's engine.
Other offering at the stand
Our biggest ever loader crane models are also presented in Bauma. The HIAB X-HiPro 1058 and HIAB X-HiPro 858 provide customers a highly productive and reliable solutions for heavy duty load handling. The revolutionary crane safety and stability system VSLPLUS, which is a unique Hiab feature, is also presented. It automatically regulates crane capacity in relation to the actual stability of the vehicle whilst it is working, by sensing the position of each stabiliser leg, and whether there is a load on the truck. We are showing the famous MOFFETT M4 model, as well as MULTILIFT Futura skiploader, which was launched in spring 2015 and has turned to be a success. Also our wide services offering is present.
Events at Hiab stand
During the weekend of Bauma at 15-17 April Nordic motorcycle trials champion Eddie Karlsson will visit our stand to present his jaw-dropping skills. On Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 April, our stand will also feature the exciting German qualification round for the World Crane Championship 2016. The finals of World Crane Championship will take place in September 2016 in IAA, when the winner of the prize worth of EUR 25,000 will be crowned.
