had a word with my son in law he fits hiabs. he has nothing second hand in stock, these small hiabs are very sort after. can supply and fit you a new one, the things to consider is what distance do you want to pickup from the truck, and where do you want to place the load onto the buck of your truck? the more things that the crane does the more it costs.
i want to pick up ton bags of waste from jobs we finish and so i reckon a ton at 2-3 mts is where i wanna be. i am just going to put them in the back of the sprinter tipper i just got but may need to place them front to back if gypsum is in there, Also wanna offload pallets on site when we get stuff delivered to yard
Also i have my own system scaffold and i want to load and offload it up to 5 mts away. so that is gonna be about 500 kg.
been looking for 3 weeks now, i missed a transit with hiab all done for 4,400.00 but when i rang him b4 auction closed he wanted 6 k i woulda given 4.5k. anyway i was keen on a sprinter as ive had a few and paqrts for them are common. the one i had was a 13 ft back with 2.6 ft flatbed bit behind the cab so ideal for a hiab type crane
he had a look at the hiab 450, he said that it is to big for your truck, more suitable for a 7.5 or a 12 tonne truck.
do a search for these cranes, maxilift, atlas, palfinger, pm, and fassi. they all manufacture cranes for your size truck.
they do go quick and for big money, bloke listed a transit hiab today at 1 o clock he reckoned i was his second caller in 20 minutes. i considered it but tbh it was shorter than my sprinter and those shape trannies are nails so i bottled it
not tried that yet, only ton sacks. I'm hoping if i park alongside it the hiab will lift a pallet about 6 ft away. its only got a 12v motor so they prety limited with wat the carry but its rated for 1.5 ton close and 600 kg at 14 ft
