HIAB Used for London’s External Lighting
External lighting firm David Webster Lighting relies on a HIAB XS 122 remote control crane to carry out its work on the streets of central London. The company has contracts to remove and erect street lamps, including cast-iron heritage columns.
According to an article on the autoevolution website, the lighting firm uses an 18-tonne Iveco Eurocargo 4×2 truck, which is outfitted with the latest technologies, including: “Bluetooth capability, axle weighing sensors, a ladder to permit safe access to and from the load bed and fixed anchor points which allow operatives to clip-on to avoid falls whilst unloading. It also features four-bag rear air-suspension and an uprated 7.5 tonne front axle with 315/70 R 22.5 tyres.”
The HIAB XS 122 offers the precise controls required in the kind of work done by David Webster Lighting. It provides the power and lifting capacity of a larger crane, but does so in a lighter overall package. Its lifting capacity is 4,000 kg @ 2.9 m or 600 kg @ 15.0m. Remote control options enable the operator to be positioned in a location with the best sightlines, and operators can act as their own load assistant, making unloading more efficient.
