Palfinger says that the design of the PK 200002 L SH closes the gap between the knuckleboom crane and the mobile crane with a long arm design for larger outreach, designed so it doesn’t fold across the width of the vehicle as usual.

The company said the PK 200002 L SH features a ‘P-profile’ extension boom system, this gives enhanced stability and reducing dead weight on the crane. It also features a front and rear stabiliser in the crane’s frame which is remote controlled and monitored by sensors. Stabiliser cylinders may be tilted upwards when encountering walls or fences.

Allowing the load position to be recorded accurately, the HPSC is equipped with an additional sensor system in the arm and easier-to-access working areas: they were blocked by electronics in the past.

To improve efficiency, the crane is fused with the truck to create a single unit at a dedicated Mounting Competence Centre (MCC). This allows mounting to be standardised and optimised on a conventional 4-axle or even a 5-axle truck.

Equipped with 8 hydraulic extensions, the crane features a hydraulic outreach of 25.6m. With the new Fly-Jib PJ 300 L, the crane can achieve a hydraulic outreach of 45.3m, and a lifting height of more than 49m.

These outreaches can only be achieved by means of the new long arm design and an additional foldable knuckle boom, Palfinger says. Nevertheless, the PK 200002 L SH has a very low installation height of 3.8m on a conventional 8×4 truck chassis.

The PK 200002 L SH has been designed based on the concept of a high degree of user-friendliness, featuring an intuitive remote control system and rapid set-up systems. It maximuses safety thanks to constant monitoring of stability.
