Dutch manufacturer Hyva has launched a new family of truck-mounted cranes ranging in capacity from 19-21 tonne-metres in its new EDGE line of lifters, which now range from 1tm to 165tm.
Designed to complement its 9tm and 13-16tm lines, the new product family, Hyva says the new family now enables it to offer solutions for every industry and application, from mining to maintenance and construction to recovery.
The 19-21tm class is designed to meet a vareity of lifting requirements, says Hyva, and comprises 14 models and five different boom configurations. The HT telescopic boom has two models of compact, light and simplebooms with side extensions, requiiring less space for installation and provinding ease of operation, ideal for applications such as car recovery.
The HB basic articulated boom, alos in two models, is a light boom and extension, which is flexible, and optimises cost and performance. The HC double linkage articulated boom range comprises six models with high-performance double linkages, one on column and one on second boom, with Liftrod Articulated System (LAS) – suitable for complex, difficult-to-reach situations.
The HC-K is a double linkage, short retractive secondary boom range with two models for high- performance, heavy-duty applications for compact wheelbase trucks.
Designed for the delivery of large loads, this crane is perfect for construction applications, says Hyva. The HC-e, meanwhile, is a double linkage, endless slewing boom version with two high-performance models for faster cycle times and faster coverage of the working area.
Depending on the crane model, there are up to eight extensions, standard and auxiliary activations for attachments by hose coiler or slides, a choice of jibs and winches, top seat or stand-up platform, and LED working lights.
Some features of the new Hyva truck cranes that aid safety, stability and speed of lifting are Dynamic Load Diagram, which provides advance verification of lifting capacity based on truck stability, and Magic Touch, which allows automatic folding and unfolding to transport and working positions.
The Ergonomic Control Station has integral crane and stabiliser controls, an ergonomic working position, and a user-friendly interface which delivers improved operator efficiency and safety together with increased productivity, while the Slewing System is designed to achieve a claimed best-in-category wide slewing angle of 425 degrees, says the manufacturer.
Davide Catellani, business director for cranes at Hyva, said: “With our new EDGE Line cranes, we now offer a first-class lifting experience and the best available warranty. Our cranes deliver excellent capabilities across the truck-mounted crane range, in a variety of configurations. And, with state-of-the-art design, new hydraulics and electronics we are delivering choice, performance, safety and ease of use throughout our new range.”
