HIAB unveils next-gen products for Middle East

Manufacturer introduces latest lifting kit to its regional dealers

HIAB showcased a number of next-gen lifting products to its local channel partners in Dubai.
HIAB showcased a number of next-gen lifting products to its local channel partners in Dubai.

HIAB has launched its next generation of lifting products for the Middle East market.

The Swedish equipment manufacturer introduced the latest models to its regional channel partners at a partner conference in Dubai, UAE.

The products unveiled included the successors to the XS loader cranes, the latest iteration of the Moffett truck-mounted forklift, and a pair of hook loaders tailored to end users in the Middle East.

“The X-CL models are basic, manually-operated cranes for hook applications,” said Mahendra Ekanayake, managing director of HIAB Middle East.

“This is a simple but effective range at a competitive price; ideal for typical operations in the Middle East. In this market, cranes tend to be used less than a third of the time that a truck is being used.

“This makes the X-CL models ideally suited for the region’s operators,” he added.

In addition to the X-CL range, HIAB introduced the successors to its XS loader cranes: the X-CLX 178, the X-Duo 178, the HiDuo 188, X-HiPro 192. Compared to their predecessors, the latest models boast soft-sealing couplings, protected hoses and cables, faster extension with lower energy consumption, and increased reaches.

HIAB has also expanded the standard span of the crane loaders to 6m, an increase of 0.5m over its XS models.

“Span is quite important in this part of the world,” said Mahendra.

“The customer first buys the truck and then the crane, but they must ensure stability. Of course, the greater the span, the greater the stability,” he explained.

The Dubai event was attended by a selection of HIAB’s regional channel partners, who were also able to see some of the products up close.
