Hookloader and Skiploader

PALFINGER Hooklifts is the most extended brand of lifting equipment designed for movable containers.

PAD Touch

The PAD-Touch control developed by PALFINGER is perfectly suited for moving the hooklift truck with a single joystick directly from the cab. The in-cab control precisely controls the movements of the container, while the screen informs the operator in real time about the position of the boom in its environment. PAD-Touch creates a new standard for boom control.

It is now available with an updated option to control the hook loader from external devices.

For a better control of your operation
