Hiab, part of Cargotec, is launching its latest innovation in the series of big cranes: the new HIAB X-HiPro 558, the strongest crane to be mounted on three axle-truck.
“Our big crane series consists of strongest and toughest of our products. Now, it covers a full range of loading capacities and can handle even the most difficult lifts,” says Joakim Andersson, Senior Vice President, Loader Cranes, Hiab.
The new member in the family is designed for lifting heavy and bulky loads. “HIAB X-HiPro 558 provides 20% more lifting power than other cranes of equivalent size. With our optimised EP boom system which has longer and lighter individual extensions, the new crane offers optimised outreach, with more net capacity for lifting bulky loads,” says Marcel Boxem, Director of Heavy Cranes, Hiab.
HIAB X-HiPro 558 model features the smooth and precise HiPro control system, which is the most advanced remote control system in the industry. Special attention has been paid to the capacity-to-weight ratio that maximises the payload and brings more by the hour for the operator. Â “We showcased HIAB X-HiPro 558 already in Bauma, and it raised lots of interest among visitors,” comments Boxem.
All big HIAB cranes offer several safety features. “For us in Hiab safety is always the first priority. In big cranes we have taken safety into consideration by offering features like VSLPLUS which uses the position of the stabiliser legs and the total weight of the truck to calculate maximum safe crane capacity, and Boom Deployment Assistant (BDA) which monitors the angle and position of the boom during folding and unfolding,” says Andersson.
