Randy Wingenroth has been appointed Palfinger's new VP of operations for North America. He succeeds Michael Berger, who will return to PALFINGER headquarters in Austria as head of corporate HR.
A new generation of PALFINGER Cable Hoists for roll-off containers has been developed by PALFINGER American Roll-Off (Trenton, NJ). Waste, recycling, construction and municipal sectors can expect strong on-the-job performance and low maintenance throughout the life of the new cable hoists. A lighter and faster product, increased load capacities and quicker cycle times are possible due to the reduced hoist weight and solid rod reeving cylinders. Additionally, users can anticipate easy serviceability and more reliability due to the standard product highlights, including:
- Fixed front locks
- Solid rod reeving cylinders
- Heavy duty hinges & pivots
- Casted lift cylinder baskets
- Tail cylinder under track
The patented design of the Palfinger American Roll-Off ARG-60-22 cable hoist allows for increased load capacity while reducing hoist weight and installation time. Its single reeving cylinder reduces weight and wear parts, while reducing cycle time, and fluid requirements are lessened with its 40 gallon hydraulic tank – both contributing to the ARG-60-22’s increased load and payload capacities.
Palfinger’s ARL-75 cable hoist is ideal for cab-over or conventional chassis and can handle container lengths from 10- up to 22 feet. Engineered to be the ultimate in performance and durability, the ARL-75 delivers exceptional payload capacities, operational ease and a long service life.
In the spring of 2012 Caterpillar Forest Products entered into a marketing agreement with Palfinger Inc. to distribute the company's line of knuckleboom self-loaders produced by Epsilon Kran GmbH, part of the Palfinger Group, under the brand name Prentice/Epsilon. Initially, the line will include multiple models and will be marketed through select distributors experienced with truck-mounted loaders.
Palfinger’s MBB-ILK Cantilever lift’s design allows for larger platform sizes and safer operation on low bed height trucks. Created to serve as a liftgate, rear door and adjustable dock plate, these units are built for years of hard labour under severe conditions. Features include a plug-in control system, improved reliability and fast installation times. The platform is 100 percent welded and designed for excellent corrosion resistance.
Xander Vooys appointed as product specialist for PALFINGER’s EPSILON cranes, hooklifts and cable lifts
Xander Vooys has been named to fill the newly established role of Product Specialist for the PALFINGER line of EPSILON cranes, hooklifts and cable lifts. According to Palfinger, in his new role, Xander will be primarily responsible for distributor support, demonstrations and training for these products.
PALFINGER’s HAD 500 Hookloader is a 25-ton capacity hookloader designed to handle containers of varying lengths, while its jib can be adjusted to handle different A-frame heights. Partnered with the PALFINGER HAD 500, the EPSILON waste crane, according to Palfinger, delivers a very effective combination of power and performance. The EPSILON “Z” Model allows the operator to fold and stow the crane during transport without disconnecting the attachment. More than 40-base models resulting in over 100 configurations are available, with capacities ranging from 2 to 10 tons, with reaches beyond 30 feet.
The Palfinger Hooklift T 12 S is a unique system engineered to replace a traditional cable hoist. With a 12,000-pound capacity, units provide a less expensive and safer alternative in the handling of solid and liquid waste, scrap metal, C&D refuse and other recyclable materials. Units also feature 10-foot to 12-foot container length range and a 52-degree dump angle.
Palfinger’s Epsilon timber and recycling crane will now be an additional product offering in North and Latin America. Epsilon, which is part of the Palfinger Group, manufactures hydraulic knuckle boom cranes (loaders) designed for high cycle, heavy-duty applications, such as forestry, scrap processing and waste hauling.
