The HIAB X-CLX 248 has it all in a mid-range, manually operated crane. A range of capacities. Accessories like rotators, earth movers and a cost effective pallet fork are available but no options are necessary or available. It’s all here. The lift? Up to 14.2 tm. The reach? Up to 50 feet. The ‘x’tra special innovations that are standard on this crane? Everything you need for a dependable, easy to use crane that is low on maintenance and high on safety, versatility, performance and value.

It’s all here and included?

Yes. Fantastic extension and lifting capacity – even in close or up high. Control in any situation – The CLX manual cross-control system makes steering simple and intuitive: identical lever sequences let you operate on either side of the truck and elicit a rapid response from your crane – movements are safe, smooth and efficient. A heat-free, fuel-saving, high performance E-Link boom system that allows up to six hydraulic extensions to position loads higher and further away from the truck. An X-function that lets you confidently angle the boom between 10 and 35 degrees. A P-boom system that optimizes E-Link for fewer but longer extensions – an even bigger boost of power for lifting in-close to the truck. And to add further to your load lifting confidence – reliable load holding valves, and easy-tilt stabilizer legs that add support in the most challenging job situations.

And it’s made to last.

The new HIAB X-CLX 248 is engineered with high tensile steel and a patented wear and rust-resistant nDurance™ coating that stands up to whatever you and the elements can throw at it. The X-series cranes are designed for minimal maintenance and maximum ease of use for the operator.  That’s backed up by no-maintenance grease-free slide pads, durable hoses are routed through the boom for protection and an oil-filled slewing house babies your gears to keep them friction-free. It’s easier to mount install and maintain. It comes with a two-year warranty, and it’s backed by Atlas Polar’s unparalleled national service network.

The HIAB X-CLX 248 makes you more productive, longer, for less.
