Features and Functions

Your business deserves the most care and support. It is important to dedicate your time to customers and their requests, not lose time handling the equipment or related issues. It's Hiab’s commitment to improve every step of owning and using its knuckle boom cranes. Technology and innovation are among the most important factors that contribute to giving you that extra edge compared to what is on the market.

It's not the single product or feature that matters but the 360° approach we have in developing our solutions.

KNUCKLE BOOM FEATURES

HiDuo & HiPro Control Systems

The HiDuo and HiPro control systems with Overload Protection (OLP) bring an unprecedented level of safety to operations without reducing performance. This highly flexible system will make your business safer and more profitable with all electronic functions, managed by our SPACE system, which includes Overload Protection (OLP) and Automatic Duty Control (ADC). When approaching an overload condition, the crane gives an audible and visual signal at 90% capacity and will stop all radius increasing functions once full capacity has been reached.

Automatic Speed Control

Automatic Speed Control (ASC) reduces dynamic loading by progressively reducing the speed of the crane when the capacity is between 80% and 100%, preventing operators from performing unsafe, abrupt movements.

Variable Stability Limit System

Hiab’s Variable Stability Limit system (VSL) monitors the truck’s stability by registering the extension of stabilizers and monitoring the pressures at each leg to determine the maximum safe capacity of the crane, allowing for higher capacities in situations where the legs are not able to be fully extended.

Load Stability System

Load Stability System (LSS-V) provides smoother, more precise vertical boom motions. If an operator performs a hard stop while raising or lowering a load, the LSS-V system controls boom movement, minimizing the bouncing of the boom and load, while preventing load damage and unnecessary stress on the crane’s components. This feature works in the background to smooth out boom functions allowing for easier placement of the load, making deliveries faster and more efficient. By controlling boom movement and minimizing the bounce of the boom, the structural stress is reduced, thus increasing the expected service life of the crane.

Crane Tip Control

Crane Tip Control (CTC) and Semi Automatic Motion (SAM) are optional features available on HiPro cranes. CTC allows the crane’s controls to be controlled by three levers – the horizontal extension from the truck, the vertical lift, and the rotation of the crane. SAM brings automated movement sequences via one-paddle control - an industry first. CTC and SAM provide a simplified operation, reducing training time when onboarding new operators, while allowing operators to perform complex techniques safely and efficiently.

CombiDrive 3 Remote Control

HiPro models, equipped with a HIAB CombiDrive 3 remote control, increases efficiency by giving the operator freedom of movement to use the best possible position to view the load. It comes standard with a 100%, 70%, or 50% speed switch. This feature allows the operator to easily change the speed of the crane - especially useful when adjusting heavy loads at long outreaches. The HIAB CombiDrive3 remote control is a reliable and worry-free industrial component designed to last the life of the crane.

XSDrive Remote Control

The HIAB XSDrive remote control increases efficiency by giving the operator freedom of movement to use the best possible position to view the load. It features two-way communication with the crane, proportionally controlling movements. The HIAB XSDrive remote control is a reliable and worry-free industrial component designed to last the life of the crane.

Pump Flow Distribution

Pump Flow Distribution (PFD) provides smooth crane operations by equally dividing oil flow instead of taking the path of least resistance. PFD ensures that available oil flow is distributed evenly, making the crane operation very predictable, smooth, and precise.

nDurance

nDurance is Hiab's state of the art anti-corrosion paint system using nano technology for the ultimate anti-corrosion coating, maintaining a rust-free reliable crane.

Safety


A true commitment to you and your business

Liability and personnel cost reductions

The implications of using safe equipment cover a wide spectrum of benefits, much more than what safety might even mean at a first glimpse.

Products that can be used by different skilled level of operators come in handy when managing resources that come and go, or when having to do a job that is being done under pressure of time.

 

Safety: SAF

Semi Automatic Folding [SAF] simplifies the stowing process reducing it to a single-lever operation, protecting the crane and the truck from damage. It allows a single lever operation to fold and unfold the crane, while activating just one lever, which greatly simplifies this frequent routine operating task.

Safety: CTC

The Crane Tip Control [CTC] assists the drivers by reducing the number of actions they have to make on the remote levers, increasing the safety of the load’s positioning, while assuring a more fluid and smooth movement.

Safety: LSS-V

Load Stability System [LSS-V] provides smoother, more precise vertical boom motions. If an operator performs a hard stop while raising or lowering a load, boom movement is controlled, preventing load damage and unnecessary stress on the crane’s components. 

Safety: VSL

Variable Stability Limit [VSL] monitors the truck’s stability by registering the extension of stabilizers and monitoring the pressures at each leg to determine the maximum safe capacity of the crane, allowing for higher capacities in situations where the legs are not able to be fully extended.
