WORLD PREMIERE - first Crawler Crane

PCC 115.002

PALFINGER will showcase a world premiere at the IAA in Hanover in the form of the PCC. This pioneering product is a highly innovative, modular system solution and a welcome addition to the company’s comprehensive product portfolio. The crawler crane has been developed for a wide range of applications. The three modules – crawler, crane and counterweight – can be separated for transportation purposes and for when the crane has to pass through tight spots. The crawler and crane can also be used separately. Depending on the situation, the crane module can be operated on stabilisers without the crawler or be mounted on a lorry. The new PALFINGER crawler crane can be used in an impressively wide range of applications. For users, this means maximum flexibility with maximum performance. The crane offers outstanding all-terrain mobility, has a compact design and is highly adaptable. Whether on impassable terrain, in urban areas, on large construction sites or in confined industrial or indoor environments, the crane is powerful and flexible and can rise to any challenge. This all-rounder is available in the variants PCC 57.002, PCC 71.002 and PCC 115.002.


PK 37.002 TEC 7 & PK 35.002 TEC 5

PALFINGER will be unveiling two further innovations from the TEC series: the PK 37.002 TEC 7, which features a continuous slewing system, is the new flagship of this model series and is designed as the successor to the highly successful PK 34002-SH. It offers all the advantages of a heavy-duty crane in a medium metre-tonne class. The TEC 7 equipment line means that all available PALFINGER comfort and assistance systems designed to make life easier for crane operators can be used. The PK 35.002 TEC 5, which is equipped with a toothed rack slewing system, will also be presented at the IAA. Just like all TEC cranes, these two models are also based on the P-profile, which ensures an extremely powerful boom system despite its low dead weight.

PK 135.002 TEC 7

In the heavy-duty crane segment, PALFINGER is expanding its comprehensive product portfolio to include the PK 135.002 TEC 7. This crane is specially designed to lift heavy loads and has an extremely long reach, but still offers payload reserves on the lorry. Its diverse range of applications includes everything from heavy-duty jobs through to intricate installation work. The PK 135.002 TEC 7 offers an outstanding ratio of lifting capacity to dead weight.


P 370 KS E

The first electrically operated access platform from PALFINGER will be a further highlight at the IAA. The P 370 KSE is a PALFINGER Premium class product. It is quiet, efficient and emissions-free, making it ideal for night-time and indoor work as well as for use on construction sites in urban areas. The new components such as the electric motors with hydraulic pumps, battery system with an integrated charging system and intelligent energy management system form the heart of the new electrically powered access platform. The P 370 KSE combines a diesel drive system with an electric drive system, which means that it offers the performance and service life of a diesel engine at low operating costs.
