A Hiab truck is a loader crane which can be used to load and unload a variety of materials, from tree trunks to heavy machinery. Using these loader crane trucks, you’ll be able to safely and quickly deliver all kinds of stock and equipment. Our range of lorry-mounted cranes allow us to lift and load up to 12 tonnes in weight.
