New cranes on order
17 March 2016
Coates Hire has placed an order with a value exceeding $A3 million for 95 Hiab loader cranes to further broaden its equipment offering for customers.
Hiab, part of Cargotec, will deliver and install the cranes. Delivery of the loader cranes will be completed early this year.
The majority of the ordered cranes represent the new Hiab T Series, launched in May 2015. The T series cranes are designed for easy mounting on utes and light trucks, and they deliver the highest quality and durability, as well as being particularly easy to use, thanks to the advanced functionality of the steering system.
Coates Hire is a long-time customer of Hiab Australia, and Executive General Manager Fleet, Ashley Lancaster, says the purchase will further enhance the company’s ability to efficiently deliver fleet to its broad customer base.
“We lead the market and this investment will ensure we can reduce turnaround and deliver on time in a safe manner.”
According to Steve Coonan, Hiab Australia National Sales Manager, “We are delighted to have received this major order in one of our key segments. The T-crane was very positively received when it was launched at the Brisbane truck show this year. This important order confirms the market’s interest in this innovative new product line,” he says.
