At CTT Moscow, Cargotec focuses on solutions for the construction industry. Hiab XS 288 loader crane goes to greater lengths
The Hiab XS 288 crane gives the best possible performance in terms of reach and lifting capacity. Its solid boom construction makes it very suitable for jib requirements. The Hiab XS 288 enables different boom configurations, as well as the capacity level and control system technologies that are ideally suited to any business and material handling needs. At CTT Moscow, the Hiab crane on display is equipped with the Duo control system that gives an extra boost of capacity and improved productivity. This is because the control system features a function called Automatic Duty Control (ADC), which senses the job being done. A Duo crane comes with a Space 3000 control system, and it complies fully with current Russian safety regulations. As all safety features are built-in on Duo cranes, our partner companies can do the installation work faster, without the need to equip the loader crane with a spirit level or a sound alarm, for example.

The Hiab Multilift XR 5S, a member of the XR family, offers a 7.5 tonne GVW truck more possibilities for utilisation. The modular XR light hooklift family is a breakthrough in demountable equipment technology. This unique, innovative design - incorporating a single-plate subframe, outstanding geometry and simplified construction - creates a totally new concept for demountable users. Hiab Multilift XR5 models boast such advantages as low weight and easy installation. It has been designed on the basis of advanced stress analysis techniques. High quality and durability are achieved by innovative production processes:

  • Laser-cut parts and robot-welded frames ensure high precision steel constructions
  • All drilling is carried out with modern broaching drill machines
  • High quality finishing at factory
  • Frames, hydraulics and control system are mounted on the assembly line
  • All functions are tested before the equipment is dispatched from the factory.

A light truck equipped with the Hiab Multilift XR 5S hooklift maximises versatility. It masters all demountable body handling tasks - loading, unloading and tipping - with ease and exceptional safety. The XR 5S hooklift has a lifting capacity of 5 tonnes, but in terms of productivity it more than pulls its weight. Hiab Multilift XR5 demountables can be installed both on Russian and foreign trucks.
