Effer’s New 90-Tonne-Meter Loader Crane Reaches Up 140’

Feb. 10, 2021 - Hiab, part of Cargotec, has launched the Effer 1000, a knuckleboom crane that brings new vertical lifting power to a 90 tm (650,970-ft.-lb.) heavy range loader crane.

Effer 1000 is the first loader crane of its capacity to offer a nine-section boom with six jib extensions that can lift 5,070 lbs. at max height of 85’4” and can lift 12,787 lbs. at a 75’5” radius. The crane weighs only 20,944 lbs. but delivers the performance of bigger cranes, which reduces emissions and cost of ownership.

Its performance and size make it ideal for operation in metropolitan areas with tall buildings where it can work with heavy loads at high heights, since it does not need to be installed on a bigger truck.

The crane has been designed based on feedback from Effer customers in the construction industry and the rental and service business who wanted a crane to deliver heavy loads at great height.

“We have listened to our customers and created a game changing Effer loader crane that delivers the best vertical performance in its class,” said Marcel Boxem, director of global product management at Hiab. “The Effer 1000 is a heavy loader crane with the competing vertical reach and lifting capacity of a super heavy crane without the need for a bigger truck. This flexibility allows it to work in tighter urban spaces and save money.”

The new Effer 1000 can reach up 85’4” with its nine-section boom. Adding the powered jib extends the maximum height to 126’4”, and adding a two-section manual extension takes the tip height to 140’.

Key to the loader crane’s vertical performance is the V10-Force decagonal boom shape that delivers the strength needed to support the heaviest loads while minimizing side oscillation and increasing the overall precision.

It also has the new Mulitpower Jib that retains performance at the longer extension, even from the 5th to 9th sections.

The crane can be installed with the Effer’s optional V-Stab and CroSStab that increase the available surface areas to place the truck for maximum stability.

The crane comes equipped with Effer’s Progress 2.0 control system that enables connected digital solutions so owners and fleet managers can retrieve data about the use and performance of the crane to facilitate maintenance planning and enhance uptime. By using remote diagnostics, the crane can be scheduled, checked, or sent software updates without having to visit a service center. It also allows owners to monitor the status of cranes and working cycles to manage their fleet more efficiently.

Progress 2.0 is CE compliant and delivers numerous safety features like support functions and sensors that assist the operator during the working cycles, avoiding excessive load risks and cutoff interventions when needed.

The Effer 1000 is available to order globally from February 2021 from Effer dealers and many Hiab dealers in selected countries.

North America’s Effer dealer is Altec.
