Palfinger to unveil new crane at Bauma
Palfinger to unveil new crane at Bauma.
The product releases are endless as Bauma 2007 approaches, and Austria-based crane manufacturer Palfinger is the latest in a long line of equipment manufacturers to release its new PK 74002 Performance crane – successor to the PK 72002.
The latest addition to the Palfinger range has a 3% higher lifting capacity than its predecessor and virtually the same deadweight, according to the company.
The PK 74002 Performance can be fitted with up to eight hydraulic extensions, and features Powerlink Plus.
The knuckle boom, which can be angled upwards 15 degrees, opens up a broad spectrum of applications to the user.
Its extension system is made of high-strength, fine-grained structural steel and optimises the ratio of deadweight to lifting moment, according to Palfinger.
The crane can be combined with the PJ 170E and PJ 125E fly jibs – which are also available with a dual power system (DPS).
Palfinger said its DPS system made it possible to increase the load capacity of the jib by up to 70%.
The new system offers the crane operator the opportunity to handle a wide range of tasks successfully in the heavy-duty range, according to the company.
The lifting moment of the PK 74002 Performance is 70.1 tonnes and its maximum hydraulic outreach is 20.4 metres.
According to the company, an automatic return oil utilisation on the extension system ensures a constantly high working speed in every crane position. The endless slewing mechanism equipped as standard with two slewing drives provides for an unrestricted radius of action.
