Palfinger Adds Timber and Recycling Crane to Lineup

Palfinger North America, Niagara Falls, Ontario, has announced that the company’s Epsilon timber and recycling crane will now be an additional product offering in North and Latin America.

Epsilon, which is part of the Palfinger Group, manufactures hydraulic knuckleboom cranes designed for high-cycle, heavy-duty applications, such as forestry, scrap processing and waste hauling.

“More and more customers are asking for a product specific to timber and recycling applications”, said Mark Woody, president of Palfinger North America. “The Epsilon product will provide users with a practical solution for their loading situations where high dynamic stresses occur.”

Vigorous movements and high speeds characterize recycling and scrap handling industries, along with continuous, heavy grab duty. The cranes have to work quickly and are often on continuous duty. These cranes are characterized by numerous solution-oriented features that make the driver’s job easier.

Standard features include the double slewing system and a steel casting column, radio remote or stand-up controls, spotlights, linkage system between the crane column and main boom. The product range will be introduced to the North American market at the ICUEE show next month in Louisville, Ky.
