Hiab Truck Background

The first hydraulic truck mounted crane was invented in 1947 in Sweden, and the word ‘Hiab’ is an abbreviation of the name of the company that manufactured it (Hydrauliska Industri AB). The invention was a major breakthrough in those days, as this was the first time that a truck-mounted crane could be easily moved from one place to another.

Today, Hiab trucks are found all over the world, and they’re the most popular articulated truck crane found in Australia. At Reef Group, we value these trucks for their power and durability. We know from experience that they’re engineered to the highest specifications. They offer unmatched versatility and control, and that’s why we’re proud to provide a Hiab truck in Perth.

Hiab truck mounted cranes are cost-effective, and they simplify what would otherwise be complicated loading and transport jobs. They are useful for a range of applications in the construction industry, as well as for handling heavy equipment and machinery.
