TEC – Technology Series

The TEC series is our new generation of premium technology knuckle boom cranes for complex, specialized operations, such as high working heights or installation work with heavy loads. A visible feature of all TEC series cranes is the industry first, patented tear-drop P-Profile boom, which makes the boom extension system rigid and lightweight. The P-Profile benefits operators with less deadweight and more load stability in the boom system.

TEC series cranes offer a range of comfort functions and intelligent assistance systems to support operators with complex lifting tasks. In North America, TEC series cranes are offered in TEC 5 and TEC 7 variants. Our premium TEC 7 crane models offer maximum lifting performance and a full range of assistance and comfort systems.
