PALFINGER Loader Cranes

RTC - Rope Tension Control

Reducing Set-up Time

Product Feature

RTC (Rope Tension Control) system is an automatic rope tensioning device that helps to fold and unfold the crane. This is a further innovation from PALFINGER that significantly shortens the set-up time.


How It Works

The Rope Tension Control can be activated or deactivated as required via the remote control, which is included as standard. All that needs to be done is for the rope to be clamped into the rope fixing point and secured via a rope securing bolt. If any crane movements are performed that affect the rope length, the innovative system automatically adjusts the rope length to match. The RTC system is controlled by the Paltronic.


Operator Friendliness

  • The crane operator is free to focus all attention on the process of folding and unfolding the crane, without constantly having to worry about adjusting the rope.

More Efficiency in Use

  • Hook operation with fly jib and reeved-in rope is possible. The time-intensive process of removing the rope is no longer necessary.

Safe Crane Operation

  • Rope damage is avoided.
