Hiab launches new JONSERED 1500RZ recycling crane at the Pollutec exhibition, France


Hiab, part of Cargotec, will present its latest innovation in recycling cranes, the new JONSERED 1500RZ in connection to the Pollutec exhibition in France. The new recycling crane is meant for scrap metal handling and heavy duty recycling. 
"One of the megatrends is urbanisation. More and more people are moving in the cities and this sets high expectations for waste handling and recycling. The new JONSERED recycling crane is designed for speedy operations which is essential in urban environments," says Jon Lopez, Vice President of Forestry and Recycling Cranes at Hiab. 
The new JONSERED 1500RZ supports lower lifetime costs as the fuel consumption is reduced with the variable pump system. The maximum lifting capacity of the new recycling crane is 13,8tm and its outreach exceeds 9 metres. The safety features include Variable Stability Limit (VSL) for increased crane stability, Over Load Protection to avoid crane overloading as well as Load Holding Valve to prevent load dropping. The Operator Protection System protects the driver by preventing the crane from accessing the operator area. 
"The new JONSERED 1500RZ crane is designed for total flexibility in operation. The customer can adapt it according to the business needs and choose between top seat, side-mounted top seat or stand-up platform with radio control. To ensure that the crane is well protected in harsh environments, it is painted with the advanced nDuranceTM surface protection system", says Toni Ahvenlampi, Senior Manager, Portfolio Management, Forestry Cranes.
In addition to the new JONSERED 1500RZ, the innovations from Hiab that will be presented at the Pollutec exhibition are:
- HIAB X-HiDuo 228 E-5 loader crane: one of Hiab's renewed mid-range loader cranes with an outreach of 17.3 metres and weight of just 2510kg. All HIAB loader cranes come with a two-year standard warranty.
- MOFFETT M4NX truck mounted forklift: the next generation truck mounted forklift with an efficient power-to-weight ratio.
- Latest innovations from MULTILIFT: How MULTILIFT hooklifts can contribute in the field of recycling. 
- HiVisionTM control system: We welcome you to experience the unique HiVisionTM concept which moves the crane operation to the truck cabin. The forestry crane operator can control the crane with the help of virtual reality goggles. HiVisionTM has recently been opened for orders. Pollutec visitors are invited to test the groundbreaking system with a simulator.
The Pollutec exhibition, focusing on environmental equipment, technologies and services, will take place in Lyon, France from 29 November to 2 December. Hiab stand 112 is in Hall 2, Aisle G. Welcome to visit us!
