Hiab has launched its largest ever crane to date with a 110 tonne metre capacity.

The super heavy loader crane HIAB iQ.1188 HiPro uses the company’s new SPACEevo control system which will greatly improve safety along with the CombiDrive 4 remote control.

Hiab says it delivers the performance of a 110tm loader crane but is similar in size to a 90tm model and can be easily installed on 4 axle vehicles while still leaving room for payload.

“Our customers want big cranes that are suited for a great variety of tasks in a smaller crane package to increase flexibility, reduce operating costs and improve fuel efficiency. We are proud to have launched our biggest HIAB crane to date with some amazing new technological features,” says Marcel Boxem, Hiab director product management loader cranes.

“The HIAB iQ.1188 HiPro is the first in the iQ. range that will set a new standard for precise manoeuvres and high speeds, and personalised settings to improve productivity. At the same time, the new features we are introducing are also making crane operation safer than ever for the operator and the surroundings.”

The new SPACEevo control system allows the crane to be operated precisely even at high speeds. The crane is controlled by the new remote control CombiDrive 4 that provides more information, with bigger colour screens, haptic feedback and increased battery life and it is possible for the operator to personalise settings like speed and crane reaction

The crane also has a DLC-S stabilisation program which can simulate the stabilisation capacity that the crane will have in a certain position and with the stabilisers opened allowing them to plan lifts.
