Hiab stabilisation system for Effer 100012 May 2022
90 tonne metre loader crane now available with CroSStab stabilisation system.
Load handling solutions manufacturer Hiab, part of Cargotec Corporation, has made its patented CroSStab stabilisation system available for its Effer brand Effer 1000 loader crane. The optional CroSStab is designed to enhance vertical lifting power enabling it to work in tight spaces.
The CroSStab stabilisation system is composed of two front opening angled stabilisers. The left stabiliser can swivel to the needed opening angle up to 123°, which allows the system to increase the stabilisation area in the front part of the truck. When used in the perpendicular traditional position, the left stabiliser offers an increased stability performance due to its longer length of 4.5 metres. This is particularly beneficial in lifting scenarios where a long horizontal reach is necessary, said Hiab. CroSStab also enables operators to lift loads in front of the truck and makes front stabilisers redundant, saving weight and cost of this add-on.
Launched in 2021, Hiab said the Effer 1000 was the first 90 tonne metre loader crane to offer a nine section boom structure with six JIB extensions. The crane weighs 9,500 kg but delivers the performance of bigger cranes, it claims, which reduces emissions and the cost of ownership. Customers can reduce costs and the weight of their vehicle with CroSStab stabiliser that can replace additional front stabilisers.
The CroSStab has been available for Effer crane models 955 and 1405 since 2010. It will become available as an option to order for Effer 1000 starting from July 2022.
“The EFFER 1000 was designed to fulfil the challenging requirements of the construction industry and rental and service business. The CroSStab stabilisation system allows EFFER 1000 customers to use the crane for complex lifting scenarios in metropolitan areas or in tight town environments, as well as increasing the crane’s vertical application capabilities,” says Giampaolo Chiffi, Global Product Manager, Super Heavy, Hiab.
