Palfinger launches PK 25001 EL knuckle boom

25 April 2008

New from Austrian manufacturer Palfinger is the PK 25001 EL hydraulic knuckle boom crane developed with roofing contractors and joinery firms in mind. Other applications include foundation construction work and the erection of prefabricated houses, Palfinger said.

The PK 25001 EL is designed to combine long outreach with high maximum working speed. With a four-section extension system the maximum hydraulic outreach is 25.5 m. The PowerLink Plus system means the knuckle boom can be angled upwards by up to 8 degrees, a common requirement on construction sites.

Radio remote control is standard, as are HPLS (High Power Lifting System), oil cooler, return oil utilisation and a winch. The 2.5 tonne lifting capacity winch is designed for high working speed and easy operation. To increase slewing torque two slewing gear motors can be fitted.
