Knuckle Boom Crane
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.
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.
P-Fold is a PALFINGER assistance system. It makes folding and unfolding an easy job for the operator. The P-Fold system also works in combination with the innovative RTC (Rope Tension Control). Both systems perfectly support the crane’s set-up processes and thus reduce set-up times to a minimum.
