PALFINGER Loader Cranes


Perfectly set up with fingertip movement

P-Fold is a new 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. The operator will be guided safe and clearly thanks to the intuitive menu navigation of the new PALcom P7 – a major benefit also for inexperienced operators. In addition to the significant increase in operator comfort, the prevention of damage on vehicle, load and rope is another important point. The P-Fold system will be available for SH-models with the new PALcom P7, from the PK 42002 SH to the PK 200002 L SH.



PALFINGER offers these strengths with the new PALcom P7 loader crane remote control. As an additional function of the PALcom P7, PALFINGER is launching the new P-Fold assistance system on the market exclusively for all cranes in the SH model series, from the PK 42002 SH to the flagship PK 200002 L SH.

The crane operator activates P-Fold using the PALcom P7 operating menu. After the assistance system is activated, the crane is set in motion by moving just one control lever. The intelligent P-Fold controls take over coordination of the crane movements until a defined working position is reached. After operation has ended, the crane can be folded down from any working position.

P-Fold again takes over coordination of all crane movements and controls the fly jib and rope winch as well. The operator controls the innovative system with just one control lever while the crane is folded down fully.

Of course, the P-Fold system also works together with the new RTC (Rope Tension Control) system. Both systems perfectly support the crane’s set-up processes. This reduces set-up times to a minimum and prevents damage to the vehicle, load, rope and surrounding area. 

In addition to the significant increase in operator comfort and the prevention of costly damage, the new assistance system significantly reduces the crane’s set-up times. This shortens working time and reduces downtime, which directly benefits the productivity of PALFINGER cranes.

The P-Fold assistance system offers a unique method of operation and is available on the market for all SH cranes ranging from the PK 42002 SH to the PK 200002 L SH in combination with the new PALcom P7 radio remote control from January 2015 on.
