Palfinger's new telescopic hooklift is tailored for the North American market
Palfinger has developed a new telescopic hooklift: the HT 160 SLD 3. The hooklift is tailored for the North American market and engineered for performance, installation, and ease of use.
"Our focus is always on developing an exemplary product portfolio specialized for our regional customers to address their challenges effectively," says Ismael Daneluz, Palfinger vice president of sales and service North and Latin America. "We are proud to offer the HT 160 SLD 3 hooklift to meet industry demands. We are confident that this new model will boost productivity and overall satisfaction for our customers."
Palfinger says that the HT 160 SLD 3 hooklift highlights higher performance with a 10 percent reduction in dead weight while maintaining a consistent lifting and tipping capacity of 16,000 pounds at a 36-inch hook height. The hooklift has an 18,000-pound tipping capacity at a 54-inch hook height.
Coupled with an subframe design that includes a raised front cross member, the HT 160 SLD 3 hooklift fits a wide range of trucks. It also has a standard advanced mounting (SAM) system which enables quick and easy installation.
User-friendliness is a major part of the hooklift's design. Among its notable features is an adjustable hook height for flexibility.
"In response to customer feedback, we have redesigned the hook shape to enable easier connection to the container bar. Furthermore, the introduction of greaseless bushings reduces maintenance time and costs for the customer," explains James Hanson, PALFINGER North America director of sales.
