Hiab launches a new generation ZEPRO heavy-duty slider lifts



Hiab, part of Cargotec, has launched tail lift brand ZEPRO’s next generation heavy-duty slider lifts for heavy goods vehicles and trailers. The robust, low maintenance lifts are designed to maximise uptime and lift life. The new slider lifts are also connectivity enabled for Hiab’s HiConnect™ service.

“The new generation ZEPRO slider lifts are made for frequent everyday use, which is typical for our customers in the food and beverage and logistics industries. To maximise uptime and lift life we have added connectivity, simplified service, and reduced maintenance need. This will help our customers to get the most out of their equipment throughout an extended lifecycle,” says Peter Robertson, Product Management Director, Hiab.

To further maximise the uptime and increase service life Hiab is offering the lift equipped with ZEPRO’s Clear Oil Filter to keep the oil free from water and dirt and the filter needs only to be changed every three years rather than annually, saving significant expense and downtime. The new generation of slider lifts share parts with other ZEPRO heavy-duty models, making it easier to order replacement parts and service. The production carbon footprint of slider lifts have been reduced with less welding and improving the paint process which makes galvanizing obsolete.

The slider lift family contains both the ZS-type for trucks and ZT-type for trailers with a lifting capacity between 1500 and 2500 kilos.

For fleet customers, the connected service HiConnect offers several benefits. It offers real-time data and notifications to understand equipment usage and improve driver safety. It also shows equipment service history, upcoming services based on service plans and real-time service counters based on actual usage. New and existing customers can register their interest already now at

ZEPRO offers a wide variety of accessories so customers can tailor their tail lifts to their needs. Spare parts are also available 24/7 from the Hiab Webshop.
