Italian loader crane manufacturer PM has launched a new mid-range loader crane series.
The nine new models, with capacities ranging from 16 to 23 tonne metres, have designed to be more economical and follow new European regulations.
They include a cast iron base with oil bath between rack and pinion. This allows the crane to carry out heavy duty slewing operations, without the need for maintenance, says the company.
The range also includes upgraded electronics to meet EN12999 regulations that must be adhered to by 25 September 2010. The software monitors the outriggers to ensure the crane does not topple over.
All models in the range include up to seven extensions, with or without links. The boom folds down to a width of 2.5 m, for more cost effective transportation.
