Continuous Slewing System

The PALFINGER Continuous Slewing Mechanism permits an unrestricted radius of action. The crane is rotated or 'slewed' using a gear box and hydraulic motor instead of a rack and pinion system. All endless slewing mechanisms come as standard with a high quality roller ball bearing.


Power Link Plus

The PALFINGER Power Link Plus system is a double linkage system with a linkage on the knuckle boom and a linkage between the main boom and crane column. With the 15 degree reverse linkage system, reaching through low door openings or working inside buildings is no problem.



With the low maintenance extension system, PALFINGER leads the way in service-friendliness. The use of sliding elements made from special synthetic material and the highly dependable KTL cataphoretic dip painting means that the operator no longer needs to grease the boom system.

How It Works

The sliding elements are molded from special synthetic material and have self-lubricating properties. No further servicing is required after the first initial lubrication, in which food-grade grease is used. All other elements (slide rails, slide blocks, etc.) operate without grease. These elements have only a secondary function as sliding elements, primarily employed as adjustment and guiding elements. Special synthetic materials are also used for the paint to protect against corrosion.

Soft Stop

The Soft Stop function is an electronic limit position damper. It causes gentle braking of all crane movements before the limit position is reached. Hence, jerky movements and load impacts can be avoided. The crane can be operated more gently and precisely.
