Smarter without a doubt

Hiab FrameWorks saves you a great deal of effort, but it also saves you headaches by eliminating risk. Installing a crane in one quarter of the time is a valuable proposition. And so is the opportunity to spend less time on sourcing and quality control.

But Hiab FrameWorks is smart in other ways too. All critical calculations are incorporated into the Hiab FrameWorks system, which leaves all the worry to us.

Faster without a doubt

Hiab FrameWorks is a modular system that minimises design work and cuts installation time by 75%.

Supplied ready-to-install for a specific truck and crane, a Hiab FrameWorks solution eliminates days of calculation and design hassle, as well as weeks of installation labour. The subframe is bolted on using the included attachment kit, with no welding or grinding involved. Nor is any lateral plating needed on the Truck chassis.

Ready without a doubt

Hiab FrameWorks is a full package that makes both delivery and future service a simple matter.

A Hiab FrameWorks solution is a complete solution that leaves nothing to chance. As well as the subframe, attachment kit and detailed mounting instructions, you get the oil tank and other key accessories along with the crane itself. That saves you sourcing elsewhere – and means easy access to Hiab spare parts and service down the road.

Easy to install

Our pre-manufactured modules make installation a breeze – around two weeks compared with up to eight weeks for a traditional loader body. This cuts 75% off the waiting time for a truck to be delivered and ready for use.

Easy to maintain

Our modular concept is designed for mechanical simplicity. The bolted construction is 100% weld-free, so parts are easy to remove and replace. That means big savings for you when it comes to maintenance time and labour costs.

Long-lasting

Corrosion is a killer for loader bodies. To ensure a long service life, Hiab BodyWorks are treated with our unique nDurance anti-corrosion coating. nDurance is Hiab’s advanced nanotechnology paint process, and it provides the industry’s toughest protection in all weathers.
