[Video] Palfinger Introduces the Loader Crane TEC-Range

The application areas of loader cranes gain more and more in complexity and require an increasing level of precision and finesse. With the TEC-range, Palfinger offers powerful loader crane models for these complex and specialized operations as the solution.

More than an optical aspect

The visible featurethe so-called P-profile – a polygonal shaped boom extension system – is implemented in the entire Technology range and turns it into a big innovation in the loader crane sector. The design is especially rigid and lightweight for great performance. Furthermore, the Palfinger P-profile boom extension system is also low in maintenance, which increases availability.

Optional features

The TEC-range consists of two different model lines. The model line TEC 5 features the well known TEC steel construction with P-profile and the majority of system options that can be expected from the TEC-range. The model line TEC 7 offers more than just its familiar and innovative steel construction – it is the high-end model line of Palfinger. In addition, the full range of assistance and comfort systems is available to choose from.

Full lifting power

The Dual Power SystemsDPS-Plus for TEC 5 and DPS-C for TEC 7 – help to use the lifting power also in fly jib mode for enhanced crane performance. The DPS-C continuously maximizes the lifting power in every position because the system knows exactly where the boom tip is due to the sophisticated sensors and electronics.

The crane as a scale

A further function of the TEC 7 model line is the feature WEIGH. It allows quick and easy to weigh loads at the site of deployment without any additional tool. The crane operator weighs the load directly on the crane and knows exactly where it can be lifted. There is almost no need to move the truck and this saves a lot of time. Moreover, it is possible to sum up weights and to have a look at the ten latest weighing operations, including date and time.
