Expanding its presence in the North American market, Palfinger has introduced seven new cranes, ranging from the cost-efficient PK 19502 to the high-performance PK 37002 and PK 46002. Models PK 19502 and PK 22002-EH both have a lifting capacity of 13,440 lbs. The expenditure for servicing both models is noticeably less due to a maintenance-free boom system. The first models for the 30-meter tonne class of the “High Performance” crane series in North America are the PK 30002 and PK 33002-EH. The first “-SH” series crane in North America is PK 34002-SH. The model is equipped with a continuous slewing system and maintenance-free boom system. The new Top-Seat controlled cranes, PK 37002 and PK 46002, are the non-radio versions of the presently offered PK 40002-EH and PK 50002-EH models.  — Palfinger North America, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada;
