Less Fuel, More Capacity and Speed with HIAB

How can you increase the fuel efficiency of your HIAB truck mounted crane? Install a variable pump

In the latest issue of HIAB Method Magazine, Cargotec Senior Adviser Lars Andersson lays out the case for installing a new pump or retrofitting an old crane with a variable pump.

Here are just a couple of reasons you might want to take his advice. Variable pumps gauge oil flow on the basis of the operator requested speeds of different crane movements, and only deliver the oil flow needed for those movements. Saving oil—several thousand litres per year, in many cases—saves money. Lower oil consumption also benefits the environment by lowering demand for fossil fuels.

What’s more, the cost of installing or retrofitting can pay for itself in as little as six months.
