Lift and Shift - HiAb Hire

HiAb Hire / Crane Lorry Hire

HiAb Hire

Emcon Services can offer a full lift and shift service thanks to our powerful HiAb vehicle. Wherever you are, we can come to you with the perfect equipment for lifting heavy loads and a qualified and experienced operator who will make sure everything goes smoothly.

A high-performance HiAb

A HiAb is a general term to refer to a lorry mounted crane. HiAbs are incredibly useful pieces of equipment and are able to lift and transport large and heavy loads in a variety of different settings.

Here at Emcon Services, we are very proud of our HiAb crane lorry. Fitted with a 68 ton per metre, 2012 remote control crane, it’s capable of lifting 15 tons - and over 3 tons at 16 metres. That’s a whole lot of loading power.

The payload is an impressive 9 tons and offers a 7.5 metres by 2.5 metres heavy duty floor, complete with lashing rings for increased load security. This means you can rest assured that your cargo will be handled safely.

Lifting slings, chains and sheets are permanently attached to complement maximum cargo weight and other lifting equipment such as beams and eyebolts are available upon request when hiring the HiAB crane lorry.

If you’re looking for help with moving or repositioning machinery using the HiAb hire vehicle, please see our installation page for further details on how Emcon Services can help you achieve this.

If you’re a haulier looking for extra capacity or additional services, or an equipment supplier of new or used supplies, after a reliable transport partner, please contact us for information.
