Palfinger adds 12 new models

25 April 2008

New from Palfinger are four new long- boom articulating loader cranes. The new models replace the PK 16000 L and PK 19000 L and boast a 15% higher lifting capacity than their predecessors. All the new cranes are available in three versions.

The PK 21001L has a maximum outreach of 16.1 m and can be fitted with up to four hydraulic extensions. The standard PK 21001 LA has a maximum lifting capacity of 1,780 kg at 10.8 m, the PK 2001 LB lifts 1,300 kg at 13.3 m and the PK 21001 LC picks 940 kg at 15.9 m.

The PK 24001 LA's maximum outreach is 10.8 m where it lifts 2,010 kg, the PK 24001 LB lifts 1,480 kg at 13.3 m and the PK 24001 LC has a maximum capacity of 1,070 kg at 15.9 m.

The PK 18001 L has a maximum lifting capacity of 2,050 kg at 8.2 m. The other two variations (PK18001 LA and PK 18001 LB) lift 1,410 kg at 10.8 m and 1,000 kg at 13.3 m, respectively.

Lastly, the PK 20001 L picks 2,290 kg at 8.2 m and is joined by the PK 20001 LA (1,600 kg at 10.8 m) and the PK 20001 LB (1,150 kg at 13.3 m)

Despite the increase in lifting capacity and reach, Palfinger says that all the new models weigh the same as their predecessors.
