Hiab UK has launched a new crane and chassis package using the manufacturers T-Boom frameworks with the introduction of its 1.84 tonne/metre T-CLX 018-2 telescopic crane.
The crane features a four section boom with a maximum capacity of 995kg at 1.2 metres radius, and can take 430kg to its maximum reach of 4.2 metres. The T-Boom Frameworks system allows local installation centres to mount the crane to any corner of a chassis in less than a week without the need for welding. It is aimed at sole traders and smaller supply chain operators such as builders and landscape gardeners.
Hiab UK managing director Ian Mitchell said: “In the last six months, the market place has changed considerably for businesses and many are looking for greater flexibility when it comes to investing in new equipment. The T-Boom Frameworks is a quick full body and crane solution for people handling close range heavy lifting needs. There is no welding on installation and the crane can be mounted on any corner of the chassis.”
“Never before have we offered a one stop shop to customers and we are really excited to be launching our Hiab T-Boom Frameworks at a time when we’re expecting to see an increase in sole traders and small business owners establishing new business ventures. As one of our smaller and incredibly durable cranes which fits onto basic van chassis, it is ideal for drivers operating in inner city locations, as well as more rural locations with tighter driving conditions.”
