Hiab presents its latest forestry crane innovations at the KWF exhibition in Germany

07/06/2016

CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 7 JUNE 2016 AT 12 PM EEST
 
Hiab, part of Cargotec, will bring its latest forestry crane innovations to KWF exhibition in Rodin, Germany on 9-12 June. We welcome you to our stand A2-150 to meet the LOGLIFT and JONSERED specialists and familiarise with our innovations.
 
In KWF, LOGLIFT and JONSERED forestry and recycling cranes celebrate their 50th and 55th anniversary in the market and will launch the new LOGLIFT 140Z and 150Z forestry cranes with several new features including Hydraulic Pilot Control, SafetyPlusTM system as well as a new seat with better safety, ergonomics and visibility. The lifting capacity of the new crane series varies between 14 and 15 tonne metres.
 
Hiab's HiVisionTM 3D control system is also presented in KWF together with a simulator.
HiVisionTM is a revolutionary and unique system in the industry with cameras on top of the forestry crane. This enables you to see the working area and operate the crane from the truck cabin using VR goggles. HiVisionTM was first launched in Bauma exhibition, where approximately 3,000 visitors tested the system and gave very positive feedback.
 
Other products on Hiab stand include LOGLIFT F251 and JONSERED 1188S cranes as well as LOGLIFT 125Z, which  incorporates SmartBase(TM) for smooth handling, stability and low weight, as well as a Hose Protection Link (HPL) to guard against blows and sticking. In addition to the forestry cranes, the Hi-CabTM cabin will be showcased in KWF. This cabin with industry's highest visibility factor, Hi-VisTM panoramic windows, offers five times more window than wall surface. It also includes an OPS-approved shockproof front door, protected under-cabin AC and ergonomic enhancements throughout the cabin.
