NINE NEW CRANES

Palfinger’s PC 1500

Nine new crane models have been introduced by Palfinger North America.

The compact telescopic series has been completely redesigned, the company says, in the performance class up to four metric tonnes. The new models offer up to a 15% increase in lifting moment and as much as a 25% decrease in dead weight. The new models — PC 1500, PC 2700 and PC 3800 — are said to have more reach and an improved slewing system.

Two new models in the small knuckle-boom class, the PK 3400 and PK 4200, feature what’s said to be "a significant advancement in small-crane design" — the newly developed extension system allows up to 32 ft, 2 in. of hydraulic reach.

The top-of-the-line PK 13002 and PK 14002-EH High Performance Power Link cranes feature the Power Link Plus system (where the knuckle boom is capable of tilting upwards to 15 degrees) as standard. This allows precision with the most difficult tasks in tight quarters.

The new PK 40002-EH and PK 50002-EH in the heavy-duty High Performance series are distinguished by high payloads and serious hydraulic outreach, Palfinger says. They come with a dual-drive endless slewing system, maintenance-free boom system, and Power Link Plus.
