Austrian loader crane manufacturer Palfinger has launched a campaign called ‘Every crane operator's dream’ which promotes its redesigned TEC loader crane range. Nine new TEC models have been available since the start of 2023 and Palfinger describes this as ‘a new era’.

The campaign, billed as ‘Every crane operator's dream’, highlights the stability and control options of the redesigned TEC range.

New control systems include the Paltronic 180 control system and the LX-6 control valve which it claims results in greater precision, easier manoeuvrability, more efficient use of energy and more convenient functions. For enhanced operator control, the cranes also have Smart Control as standard. It is designed to enable control of just the crane tip with only one lever movement. The cranes also have Memory Position – a crane positioning system, which can store up to four crane positions and Levelling Assist to aid the operator level the crane. 

“As a technology and innovation leader, we are constantly challenged to find better solutions for our customers,” says Stefan Oberleitner, product line leader loader cranes at Palfinger. “In the development process with the interdisciplinary project team, we involved customers right from the start in order to develop the new TEC series according to their needs. The stated aim: to develop every crane operator's dream.”
