PALFINGER PK 17.001 SLD 3: Strong Partner for Reliable and Efficient Operations


David from Road 2015 LLC in Georgia has relied on the PK 17.001 SLD 3 for years, and the compact loader crane is critical to their day-to-day operations to deliver building blocks reliably and efficiently across the country.

SLD stand for solid and effective loader cranes from PALFINGER. The range has a strong hexagonal profile, which makes them robust for fast and simple applications, like Road 2015 LLC in Georgia has it every day. The leading company in the block building production in Georgia is actively operating in the market since 2010. The company has more than 200 professional employees and counts on highest quality in raw materials as well as in European standard machinery for production and extraordinary service quality. Therefore, the company has taken the decision to work together with PALFINGER Georgia and counts on the expertise of them with their excellent service network since many years. This results in that the whole fleet of the block building productions company consists already of five rear mounted PK 17.001 SLD 3. “The PK 17.001 SLD 3 working horse has a comfortable outreach of around 13 meter and a perfect lifting moment of nearly 16 meter tons”, says David.

Furthermore, the crane convinces him and his colleagues with Single Link Plus. The knuckle joint on the crane’s knuckle boom improves the lifting power on the crane tip significantly. With it the crane can be angled also upwards to work better in the tightest spaces and through low door openings. The solid and reliable cranes are also equipped with a radio remote control. This enables the crane operators to handle the heavy load very easily through extended maneuverability with the radio remote control.


Road 2015 LLC works not only with the cranes to reach anything. It also relies on additional PALFINGER equipment, which makes the crane even more flexible. One of them is the PALFINGER crane manipulator on the crane tip of the PK 17.001 SLD 3, which increases safety and efficiency for the crane operators, like David, by delivering the building block pallets to customers in the shortest possible time.


A real success story, which will go further. David revealed that his company are already considering buying a new PALFINGER loader crane. This time it will be maybe a PK 20.501L TEC 3.
