HIAB is a brand name which has become a generic term used to refer to a Lorry Mounted Crane. These are used predominantly for delivering items that are too heavy/bulky to handball and where a forklift isn’t available.
Typically, HIAB vehicles will be used in the construction industry, timber suppliers, block suppliers or any company delivering large items on a regular basis.
They can be fitted with various attachments specific to the task; most commonly hook, block grab or clamshell bucket. They can also be controlled with manual levers or by remote control.
We’ve been supplying HIAB drivers to the industry for the majority of the 30+ years that we’ve been in business and have a fully accredited training centre to upskill people new to the equipment and refresh experienced operators.
