HIAB-FOCO is to introduce progressively six general-purpose and four forestry loaders through its UK distributor George Cohen Machinery of London N W10.
Each of the general purpose loaders, which range from 5.3 to 25 tonne/metres, will be available in two basic versions. The B2 is designed for general lifting work and the B3 for use with hydraulic attachment and where highduty cycle applications are involved.
All support legs now use similar components with standard length hydraulic cylinders. Extendable leg beams are also available for the new models while the 10 and 14 t/m ones have extra-long support beam. These provide a span of 5.6m.
The 19 and 26 t/m loaders have a new over-centre valve to prevent overloading the boom and twin support legs for increased stability. Additional hydraulic and manual boom sections are available on selected models.
Hiab's new forestry loaders include the upgraded and improved seven and 10 t/m models while the new nine and 18 t/m versions complete the revised line-up.
Single or double slewing arrangements are optional.
A new type of hydraulic seal is used on all the new Hiab booms, which are fabricated in six-sided box sections of a higher grade of steel.
