Hiab presents the new effective JONSERED 1200RS recycling crane at the IAA Exhibition


Hiab, part of Cargotec, is bringing its latest innovation in recycling cranes, the JONSERED 1200RS to the IAA exhibition in Hannover, Germany. The new crane is designed for collecting and removing residue material from digging applications. It is also used for transport and delivery of filling material such as sand and gravel. With maximum capacity of 11.3tm, the new crane gives the operator the optimum balance between reach, weight and capacity.
"In the rapidly urbanising world, efficiency in recycling is becoming more and more important. Collecting and removing residue material needs to be safe and fast when working in an urban environment. The equipment has to be reliable and durable so that the operator can work efficiently. Our response to these demands is the new JONSERED 1200 RS recycling crane," says Jon Lopez, Vice President, Forestry Cranes, Hiab.  
"The JONSERED 1200RS was launched in April in connection to the CV Show in Birmingham in the UK where it gained a lot of positive interest among the visitors," says Toni Ahvenlampi, Senior Product Portfolio Manager, Forestry Cranes, Hiab.
"Total cost of ownership is a focal area in our new product development. In this crane we have made variable pump available as an option, which enables lower fuel consumption as well as a longer oil life thanks to lower oil temperatures. Another priority was to ensure a safe, ergonomic and well-functioning working environment for the crane operator," Toni Ahvenlampi continues.
Safety features in the new crane model include overload protection as well as the Variable Stability Limit (VSL) function. The Operator Protection System (OPS) creates a virtual safety cage that protects the driver when operating the crane from the stand-up platform.
The JONSERED 1200RS is designed for flexibility in operation. The new unique twin stand-up platform allows the operator to stand on both sides of the column. The operator can swiftly move position from the right to the left side of the crane column to get the perfect vantage point providing an optimal view of the working area at all times.
Welcome to see the JONSERED 1200RS with other Hiab innovations at the IAA exhibition, in Hannover Germany, on 22-29 September, at our stand P35. Hiab's press event is held on Thursday 22 September at 1 p.m. CEST at the stand. More information is available at
