TEC for complex tasks

02.11.2020

The application areas of loader cranes gain more and more in complexity and require an increasing level of precision and finesse. With our TEC-range we offer powerful loader crane models for these complex and specialized operations as a perfect solution.

More than an optical aspect

The visible feature – the so called P-profile – a polygonal shaped boom extension system – is implemented in the entire TECHNOLOGY range and turns it into an extraordinary innovation in the loader crane sector. The design is especially rigid and lightweight for the most impressive performance. Furthermore the PALFINGER P-profile boom extension system is also low in maintenance, which significantly increases availability.


Optional features

The TEC-range consists of two different model lines. The model line TEC 5 features the well known TEC steel construction with P-profile and the majority of system options that can be expected from the TEC-range. The model line TEC 7 offers a lot more than just its familiar and highly innovative steel construction – it is the high-end model line of PALFINGER. In addition to get maximum lifting power, the full range of assistance and comfort systems is available to choose from.


Full lifting power

The Dual Power Systems – DPS-Plus for TEC 5 and DPS-C for TEC 7 – help to use the maximum lifting power also in fly jib mode for enhanced crane performance. The really special thing about DPS-C is that it continuously maximises the lifting power in every position, because the system knows exactly where the boom tip is due to the sophisticated sensors and electronics.


The crane as a scale

A further interesting function of the TEC 7 model line is the feature WEIGH. It allows particularly quick and easy to weigh loads at the site of deployment without any additional tool. The crane operator weighs the load directly on the crane and knows exactly where it can be lifted. There is almost no need to move the truck and this saves a lot of time. Moreover, it is possible to sum up weights and to have a look at the ten latest weighing operations, including date and time.
