PAL Pro 43


Product group:
up to 43,000 ft lbs

When the perfect blending of weight, storage space, strength and durability are what you are looking for then the PAL Pro Series of Crane Bodies are what you need.  The PAL Pro 43 will handle any crane rated for a load moment of 43,000 ft/lbs., with a max loading moment of 50,000 ft/lbs.  Available in many standard 9' and 11' configurations, it is designed with a hybrid torsion box and ladder frame understructure utilitizing the hightest quality 10ga A60 galvanenneal and structural steel cross members for superior strength.

The frame, bumper, outrigger tubes and crane box are all integrated to deliver the force of the crane load to the outriggers, leaving the body untouched by the load forces.  The body is made from 12ga A60 galvanneal, with treadplate topes and load space.  Eight 6,000 lb. tie downs in the floor of the body, a 5/16" top plate on the bumper, 2" hitch receiver and 3 point latching doors are all standard.

The doors are a two piece top hat design held together with automotive adhesive to eliminate welds, and utilize 316 marine grade stanless steel hinges.  All this, plus a 12 step e-coat dip process for the primer and 6 year warranty on the body and hardware -- and you have the new standard in superior crane bodies.
