    A much nicer Volvo seventy years ago. They really were real trucks. No power steering or other trim.

    Yes, it is an early HIAB (Hydrauliska Industri AB in Hudiksvall).
    Hiab history & strong brands

    By the way, in 1949 I saw my very first crane on a Scania-Vabis truck loading timber. It was from the than competitor Foco. Later HIAB absorbed Foco.

    What i know is that .........................it is a LOT off $$$$$$ or €€€€€€.
    Not worth it for me.
    I drive to earn money not to give it all away for a overpriced truck.

    Take the new price off the truck,which is very high now,and add 30 000 to 35 000€.(based on the price Vlastuin is asking for the Scania's)
