Spanish crane rental and transport company Gruas Pernia has taken delivery of a 45.7 tonne/metre Palfinger PK 48.002 TEC 7 loader crane.
Launched last year (see: Two more Palfingers), the PK 48.002 TEC 7 F offers a maximum capacity of 16.5 tonnes - or 8.9 tonnes at 4.6 metres. It has been mounted on a 6x4 MAN TGS 33 chassis and supplied with a PJ090 C telescopic articulating jib which can handle up to 480kg at a radius of 29.1 metres. Features include Palfinger’s Weigh function allowing the operator to weigh each load as well as automatically calculating the last 10 loads if required, useful when loading the truck.
Michael Völker , Palfinger head of crane product management, said: “Since Palfinger announced the launch of 10 new models in its TEC range in 2019, these cranes have gone on to be widely accepted in the Spanish market. Among the recently launched TEC models, the PK 48.002 TEC 7 and PK 37.002 TEC 7 are the two models most demanded by our customers in Spain and are becoming true top sales in their respective tonne/meter segments.”
Based in Santander, with a second location in Reinosa, Gruas Pernia offers an all Liebherr fleet of mobile cranes as well as loader cranes, a range of transport vehicles and access platforms.
