PALFINGER Hookloader and Skiploader
Product area


PALFINGER Hooklifts is the most extended brand of lifting equipment designed for movable containers.

PAD Touch

The PAD-Touch control that was developed by PALFINGER is perfectly suited to the handling of the hooklift with one single joystick directly from the cabin. The cabin control precisely controls the movements of the containers while the screen informs the operator in real-time of the position of the arm in its environment. PAD-Touch creates a new standard for arm control.

Now available with an updated option to control your hookloader from external devices.

For a better control of your operation

View Following Function, the right cam at the right time

The VFF has been developed to allow a better control of operations from inside the cab. Drivers can see accurately and without effort, what they are doing. They can adjust their handling at the right moment saving time without compromising safety

Pack Vision camera

Displays the position of the arm and the container on the touchscreen of the PAD-Touch control directly during the manoeuvres. It facilitates the use of the arm and the transfer to a trailer, day and night.


Efficiency for fleet, truck and hookloader - we support you in modern fleet management with efficient digital platforms, optimzied for fleet managers, operators and service partners. 

Time saver – Quick tipping speed & return

The quick speed allows for the reduction of the cycle times, particularly those for empty container placement and tipping. The combination of the quick tipping return patented by PALFINGER and rapid motion reduces the cycle time of the hooklift by half.
