PALFINGER North America introduces their NEW PK 78002-SH High Performance Crane to North American Market

NIAGARA FALLS, ON – November 1, 2011 Uncompromising quality down to the last detail, an unbeatable power to weight ratio and its intelligent control concept make the PK 78002-SH second to none in the 80 meter tonne class.

Be it moving heavy machinery, precision installation assignments or delicate loading of boats — as a multi-talented quick-change artist, the PK 78002-SH always pulls out the right stops for every task.

The PK 78002-SH features many of PALFINGER’s High Performance technologies:

Endless slewing system with two slewing drives. Since the two drives are reciprocally hydraulically pre-stressed, the crane’s slewing play is reduced to a minimum – a priceless advantage for jobs requiring a high outreach. The double slewing system ensures a high slewing torque and extremely precise crane movements.

PALFINGER is clearly setting the standard for ease of maintenance and environmental protection with the maintenance-free extension boom system. The use of sliding elements made from special synthetic material combined with time-tested KTL cathodic dip painting means that the operator no longer needs to service the boom system. This not only saves time and money but also protects the environment.
