Five New HIAB Cranes for ThyssenKrupp Palmers

ThyssenKrupp Palmers, a UK-based scaffolding company, was looking for a truck mounted crane that could handle all of their delivery requirements. The crane they chose was the HIAB XS 144.

The XS 144 has lifting capacity of 5,000 kg at 2.6 m, and 720 kg @ 15.0 m. ThyssenKrupp Palmer chose it for a number of reasons:

  • Competitive pricing. HIAB won a competitive tendering process by offering an affordable yet comprehensive package that included crane training.
  • Past experience with HIAB products. The company had worked with other HIAB products and knew all about their reliability and the excellent customer service that HIAB provides.
  • Versatility. The XS 144 can be specified with an 8.2m reach, ideal for their trucks, which have an 8m bed.
  • Flexibility. The company used to use cable lifts, but wanted the flexibility to deliver in multiple areas on site, which the HIAB XS 144 provides.

ThyssenKrupp Palmer provides another example of the many possible applications for HIAB cranes. Take a look at the pictures to see just how well-suited the XS 144 truck mounted crane is to the job of moving scaffolding boards and supplies.
