Safety, reliability, and sustainability are among the themes running through Hiab’s stand at this year’s Road Transport Expo (RTX) running from 28-30 June at NAEC Stoneleigh in Warwickshire.

Returning to RTX for the second year in a row, Hiab is set to display its range of smart, safe and sustainable load-handling solutions, this year featuring the brand-new HIAB iX 158 HIDUO - the next generation in loader cranes.

This crane is designed to be lighter and stronger than previous generations of Hiab loader cranes and promises customers improved safety, cost efficiency, and performance reliability.

It features two hydraulic extensions and is up to 370kg lighter than its predecessor, while the capacity of the crane has been increased by 14%, meaning no compromise on your service and more room on your truck for your next payload.

The stand will be hosting live demos at the show for attendees to see Hiab’s latest product ranges up close and in action. These will include the company’s fully electric truck-mounted forklift, the HIAB E-MOFFETT, and its DEL solar-powered tail-lifts.

RTX visitors are also invited to enjoy some first-class hospitality on Hiab’s stand where they can chat with product experts and meet the UK’s new company head, John Carnall.

Vice president and managing director at Hiab UK, John Carnall, said: “We’re excited to be back at Road Transport Expo this year, it’s a great event for the industry.

“We can’t wait to have the iX on display for the first time in the UK and demonstrate the ability of our products to attendees.

“Make sure to swing by our stand and meet our product experts who will be able to answer any questions or queries.”

 To join in with all of the action over the three days, all you need to do is register online for your free ticket to attend RTX and find Hiab on stand B14.
