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.
High Power Lifting System
The PALFINGER High Power Lifting System (E-HPLS, A-HPLS or S-HPLS) increases the capacity of the crane by up to 15% while reducing working speed. E-HPLS can be activated manually for the occasional manipulation of very heavy loads. A-HPLS as well as S-HPLS are activated fully automatically. There is continuous activation depending on the power required.
LOW MAINTENANCE EXTENSION SYSTEM
With the low maintenance extension system, PALFINGER leads the way in service-friendliness. The use of sliding elements made from special synthetic material, together with the highly dependable KTL cataphoretic dip painting, means that the operator no longer needs to grease the boom system.
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.
