PALFINGER focuses on digitalization and service

PALFINGER showcased the latest developments and innovations in the field of digitalization and service with the aim of demonstrating how much digital technology of the future is already packed into PALFINGER's high-tech solutions – from the PALFINGER Connected telematics solutions for optimizing crane capacity utilization (Fleet Monitor and Operator Monitor) and sophisticated control and assistance systems for access platforms and cranes, to remote solution and real-time transmission with Smart Eye, which allows service technicians anywhere in the world to communicate with experts.

PALFINGER showcased over 20 different products along with a world premiere of PCC 57.002 crawler crane, which is a smaller and more maneuverable version of its crawler crane. Not only can the system be dismantled into its constituent modules for transport, but it also allows its modules to be combined in different ways during operation. Depending on the application, for example, the crane module can be either mounted on a truck or operated on stabilizers without any need for the crawler. This incredible versatility ensures both maximum flexibility and maximum performance.

New TEC models from PALFINGER were the 25–37-ton-metre class that include: PK 37.002 TEC 7 (with continuous slewing system), PK 35.002 TEC 5 (with rack and pinion slewing system), PK 30.002 TEC 7 (continuous) with Smart Boom Control; and PK 26.002 TEC 3 (with rack and pinion slewing system). In addition, with the PK 58.002 TEC 7 prototype, the first ever TEC crane in the 50–60-ton-metre class was also unveiled.

Other new models on display included the PK 24.001 SLD 6 and PK 21.501 SLD 3 from the SOLID range, which offers outstanding lifting capacity for simple loading tasks. These are the first SLD cranes in the heavier 20–25-ton-metre class. In the heavy-duty crane segment, PALFINGER showcased the PK 135.002 TEC 7.

With the P370 KS E, PALFINGER launched the first ever electrically-operated access platform. This premium-class platform is quiet, efficient and emissions-free, making it ideal for night-time and indoor work as well as for use on construction sites in urban areas. Its intelligent energy management system ensures smooth interaction of components such as the electric motor with hydraulic pump and the integrated battery charging system. The P370 KS E combines a diesel drive system with an electric drive system, which means that it offers the performance and service life of a diesel engine at low operating costs.

PALFINGER has taken the subject of electrification for the crane sector to the next level with its PK 18502 SH as an example of the possibilities. The PK 18502 SH can be operated with a plug-in electric drive as well as fully autonomously with a battery pack, which can in turn be supplied either by the power grid or via a generator. The P 370 KS E and the PK 18502 SH were also present on the PALFINGER stand.

For the first time ever in the history of PALFINGER access platforms, PALFINGER showcased a selection of models from the entire global platform portfolio. User-friendliness is the hallmark of the Light class NX, which was represented at bauma by two new models: the P 220 BK and P 280 CK. These two Light class NX models, which are designed for use in municipal applications and can be operated by anyone holding a standard driving license, feature an impressive range of operator assistance systems that enable flexible outreach calculation (LMB), high basket loads (300 kg), easy stabilizer control at the vehicle base and, as a result, almost completely intuitive operation.


With the P 130 A, PALFINGER has brought the Smart class to the pick-up – with a maximum working height of 13 m, a maximum lateral outreach of 6.30 m and a total weight of 3,200 kg. Since the model is extremely user-friendly and learning how to operate it is no trouble at all, it is perfect for the rental market.

With the P 200 AXE, PALFINGER has developed an extremely compact design for access platforms in the Smart class. At a gross weight of 3.5 tons and with a length of just 5.39 m in the transport position, this is the perfect solution for tight spaces.

PALFINGER also presented the biggest platform in the Tracked class: the P 250 AJTK, designed for working at heights of up to 25 m. Its compact dimensions make it ideal for sites that are hard for truck-mounted platforms to access.

Another highlight in the platform range was the ETC 40 IH. In the hookloader family, the PH T 20A TEC 5 is the first telescopic model to be available in the high-tech TEC 5 version. The PH T20A TEC 5 was presented for the first time ever with a prototype version of the newly developed Intelligent Loading Assist (patent pending). Also shown was an EPSILON M12L crane, which is not only ideal for the recycling industry, but can also be used with clamshell grabbers on construction sites.
