More of what you want – whatever that is

The new HIAB X-HiDuo 188 is loaded with innovative smart control features to optimize fuel use, boost productivity and value, to keep you and your equipment safe and stress-free.

More power + performance: The X-HiDuo 188 packs a double punch. Start with an outreach of up to 15 metres and a maximum lifting capacity of up to 5,000 kg. Then get straight to work with a quick touch of the X-HiDuo 188’s ergonomic XS Drive™ controller, steering over 30 different functions – many at the same time. And stand anywhere you want – perfect for awkward or confined spaces. The X-HiDuo 188’s link-free B-Link boom system has up to four hydraulic extensions that respond instantly to the controls, so you’re always in complete control of your load. Need more power? Automatic Duty Control (ADC) and Automatic Speed Control (ASC) work with the HiDuo lever controls to boost capacity up to 10% when you need it most – no interruptions, nothing extra to do. Standard Auto Damping of Oil (ADO) smoothly returns you to exactly where your lever stops – every time. In just three seconds, oil returns back to the tank, putting savings right back in your pocket. And easy-tilt stabilizer legs ensure you’re always on safe footing. And easy-tilt stabilizer legs keep you safe and steady at all times.

More versatility: The X-HiDuo 188 is one of the most versatile truck-mounted cranes on the market. It’s one of HIAB’s new X-series that lets you customize your crane to your needs with capacity choices, control systems and a host of options to give you exactly the crane you want. Ownership is versatile too, thanks to Atlas Polar’s #1 national sales and support network and easy in-house financing.

Customize your HIAB for even greater performance and profitability. Add a base-mounted oil tank, an optimized E-link system with X feature that angles the boom to make it even easier to access confined spaces. Or an S-boom option if you need to increase lift height close to the column. Working with extra-heavy loads? Opt for a Vertical or horizontal Load Stability System (LSSV/LSSH). Or a Boom Deployment Assistant (BDA) to monitor the angle and position of your boom as you fold and unfold your crane. It ups your safety level yet another notch, preventing operator error that could damage your valuable equipment. You can also add on a range of rotators, hydraulic hooks, pallet forks and brick grabs.

More durability, efficiency + ease of use: The HIAB X-HiDuo 188 is quick and easy to mount and designed to be easy to maintain. Hoses are hidden away where they can’t be damaged. Couplings are designed to prevent leaks. The oil tank can be integrated in the crane base where it’s quicker to reach, install and service. And the high tensile steel construction is lighter, faster and delivers a bigger payload, coated with a patented nDurance™ finish that forms a protective shield to prevent corrosion and keep your crane looking good for a lifetime. To prove a point: HIAB cranes have the highest resale value in the industry.

And more savings: Get the job done right. Fast. Smart. And profitably. The X-HiDuo 188 saves time, fuel costs, maintenance costs, and a lot of stress, with less risk and fewer emissions.

It’s all about building up to the crane you want.
