Klaas reveals new truck crane
By Leila Steed11 February 2020
Crane and aerial lift manufacturer Klaas, part of Kranlyft Group, has introduced a new truck-mounted crane.
The Klaas K1100 RSX has a main boom with a telescopic fly jib for a maximum lifting height of 60 metres and a capacity of 6 tonnes. The boom is made of aluminium.
Despite being one of the larger truck-mounted cranes in its portfolio, Klaas said the model’s outrigger spread width of less than 6 metres makes it suitable for sites with limited space.
“This exciting new model is a strong addition to our range of larger truck cranes,” said Jonas Gadolin, technical director at Kranlyft Group. “The K1100 is truly an innovative piece of German engineering and we are looking forward to deliver the ﬁrst orders.
“As a dealer that works in parallel with the market we can see how these types of mobile cranes keep ﬁnding new ways of use. Easy manoeuvrability and comfortable handling are combined with the enormous reach of the aluminium boom.”
The K1100 RSX comes with diesel motor drive, radio remote control, continuous rotation, personal safety mode and automatic levelling as standard. It also has a 2.5 tonne capacity winch and, is available with a hybrid drive system as an optional extra. According to Klaas, it enables the machine to use fuel more efficiently and to be more environmentally friendly.
The new machine was first shown to the public in January at the Dach + Holz International 2020 exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany. More than 52,000 visitors from 83 countries attended the event, which had more than 600 exhibitors from 29 countries.
