PALFINGER MFA jib: maximum reach and flexibility

20.04.2018

With the new MFA jib, PALFINGER has increased the maximum reach of the TEC crane series by another 5.5 metres. Above all, the new application from PALFINGER will meet the special requirements for longer reach and greater flexibility from customers in the height logistics industry. The MFA jib can be used to lift loads to previously inaccessible positions and, as a result, perform extraordinary operations.

The PALFINGER loader crane is valued by customers as a multifunctional piece of equipment that can be deployed for a wide range of tasks. A variety of existing attachments supports this flexibility. With the new MFA jib, the crane can now be perfectly equipped for height logistics tasks that require an even longer reach. Both a rigid and swivelling version are being introduced. The optional angle adjustment of between +20° and -60° makes it possible to perform operations above projecting edges that were previously inaccessible for the crane, uniting the benefits of a mechanical extension with the flexibility of a fly jib. The MFA jib permits a maximum lifting capacity of 350–650 kg and can also be used for rope winch operation.

Time and cost savings and ease of use 

The MFA jib is connected to the standardised multifunction adapter (MFA). For users, the big advantage of this universal connection is that all the attachments can be secured and exchanged quickly and easily. In practice, this results in huge time and cost savings.

"The PALFINGER MFA jib is the perfect addition to the PK 200002 L SH with PJ 300. It is easy to use and impressed me right from the start", explains Josef Lierzer from Hierzmann Transporte in Unterpremstätten, Steiermark, Austria. Josef is one of the first crane operators to use the MFA jib.

New TOOL software function 

The MFA jib is integrated in the electronic high-performance stability control system (HPSC) using the new TOOL software function. TOOL enables the various additional devices connected via the MFA to be included in the calculation of the stability limit for P-Profile cranes.

Requirements and availability 

Like the multifunction adapter, the MFA jib is available for all cranes in the TEC series and fly jibs with P-Profiles and is available now.

The MFA jib will be presented for the first time at INTERMAT in Paris from April 23rd until 28th. Booth: E6 F105
