The new model, one of the largest Klaas truck cranes, has a maximum lifting capacity of 6t, a winch capacity of 2.5t and a maximum lifting height of 60m. Its maximum outrigger width is less than 6m, making it ideal for construction sites were space is limited.

This new model is equipped with a hydraulic telescopic ?y jib, double derricking cylinders, TFR boom system, twin lu?ng cylinders, crane control system, telescopic winch, separate diesel motor drive concept, extendable counterweight and much more. Features such as radio remote control, personal safety mode, 360° continuous rotation, and automatic levelling come as standard.

Jurgen Vater, CEO of Kranlyft Group, said: “Klaas keeps taking major steps forward in their development. This release gives us a strong indication of their direction for the future—and it looks bright. The K1100 is a perfect example of a mobile crane that can have limited ground base without having to forego immense reach values.”

Jonas Gadolin, technical director at Kranlyft Group added: “This exciting new model is a strong addition to our range of larger truck cranes. And as always with machines from Klaas you can rely on high-performance and great quality. The K1100 is truly an innovative piece of German engineering and we are looking forward to deliver the ?rst orders. As a dealer that works in parallel with the market we can see how these types of mobile cranes keep ?nding new ways of use. Easy manoeuvrability and comfortable handling are combined with the enormous reach of the aluminium boom.”
