hiab cherry picker

Recommended Posts

i have just recently bought a truck with a hiab on it, when i was in italy i saw trucks with a basket bolted onto the end of the hiab and the controls up there, i was told that in this country it is only legal for your own use. it was very simple, it just slid into the end of the boob, and the basket could just be level ou with pulling a lever to let the baslet hinge.. so any experts out there no the rules about this.:001_smile:

You can get it done, but to meet HSE regs you need to have it assessed by Loyd's of London.

 

There was a mog up at Alex's the other day with a 30tonne Metre Palfinger on it, with an "F" boom, 9 extensions.

 

He had a legal basket for that.

 

You could make your own and use it yourself, BUT DO NOT let others use it.

 

You really need radio control, so you can control it from the basket.

They are insurance underwriters, without there approval you would not get insurance.

 

The assessment costs about £7K I seem to recall, which is fine if you are having 10 built, as one assessment would cover any number of the same setup, but for one its a bit steep.

 

If you buy new from palfinger its an option on some models, but not cheap.

Radio remote as an aftermarket Fit is vera vera expensive. probably £7k or thereabouts.

 

I think they are available for £4K.
