The patented PALFINGER ACTIVE OSCILLATION SUPPRESSION (AOS) system dampens the boom system of the crane, compensating for vibration and shock, even after a sudden stop of the lifting function. The result is a significant increase in saftey in crane operation for operator, loads and surrounding areas.
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 crane is rotated using a gear box and hydraulic motor rather than a rack and pinion system. The hydraulic motor drives a pinion which meshes with a base-mounted high quality roller ball bearing, rotating the crane.
