Palfinger to Launch Truck-Crane Packages at ConExpo

PALFINGER North America, Niagara Falls, Ontario, a leader in truck-mounted cranes, has teamed up with North America's leading truck manufacturers to offer power and reach with superior performance for extreme applications featuring the PK 85002, PK 100002 and PK 150002 knuckleboom cranes. A number of these truck-crane packages will be on display at this year's ConExpo.

Palfinger's engineers design each truck and crane to withstand the maximum torque and load to tackle demanding applications. This unique truck-crane product series will provide the strongest, most versatile crane on the market today, according to the company.

Included in this display will be the PK 85002 crane, which is known for its working speed, outreach and lifting capacity. The crane includes standard features such as a high-power lifting system, Paltronic 50, Power Link Plus and Dual Power System.

Also on display will be the PK 100002 crane with fly-jib. Equipped as standard with Paltronic 50, Radio Remote Control, and Power Link Plus, this crane stands out through its maneuverability. The PK 150002 Performance crane is also equipped with the high power lifting system, Paltronic 50, Power Link Plus and Dual Power System.

Each of these units is equipped with load-sensing hydraulics for control and overall efficiency. Also featured on the PK 100002 and PK 150002 (and offered as an option on the PK 85002) is the Integrated Stability Control system. The ISC system adjusts the crane's lifting capacity according to outrigger and stabilizer positions at time of setup.

An off-site demonstration area for the general public will also be set up at the RIO Suites-Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas March 11-15, 2008. Product demonstrations will take place at this off-site location.
