Hiab to introduce flexible Rapid Lock System


We are happy to present the new HIAB Rapid Lock System, designed to help you save time when changing tools on your HIAB crane, such as grapples, buckets, pallet forks, hooks etc.

HIAB’s patented Rapid Lock System (RLS) makes attaching the accessories to the crane simple and efficient, so your operators can focus on the task at hand. Operators can no longer park their crane and bucket on the load during transport.

The RLS system includes:

  • Reinforced 68 mm shaft rotator
  • RLS upper part, including solenoid valve for 3 hydraulic circuits
  • RLS lower part – hydraulic or mechanical, depending on the usage

Bucket Cradle

The HIAB Bucket Cradle was specially designed to simplify load transport and improve productivity for tipper trucks used in digging and filling applications. Incorporated into the operator platform behind the truck cabin, the cradle safely stores the bucket out of the way when in transit and allows for quick attachment when the truck arrives on the job site.

In the video you can follow the whole process of quick secure coupling with RLS using SAF:
