Palfinger adds crane model

July 16 - Manufacturer of truck-loading cranes, Palfinger, has launched a new generation of heavy-duty crane in the form of the PK 165.002 TEC 7.

The PK 165.002 TEC 7 is designed for carrier vehicles with a maximum gross weight of 32 tonnes. This means that even when fully loaded, it remains within the permissible total weight on the road, which Palfinger says saves time and expense on bureaucratic matters.

Although it is one tonne lighter than its predecessor model, the PK 150002, its lifting capacity is 15 percent higher, with a lifting torque of 125 tonnes.

Palfinger says that its future looks very promising. In 2014, the company broke the EUR1 billion (USD1.09 billion) mark in sales for the first time in its history and a new sales record is expected in 2015. In the first quarter of 2015, the Palfinger Group recorded sales growth of 10.7 percent to EUR292.3 million (USD319.44 million).
