Italian loader crane manufacturer F.lli Ferrari has launched a new line of three mid-range loader cranes creating the new 6000 Series.
The units - built to European standards but primarily aimed at the non CE market - include the 9.6 tonne/metre 6108B which has a maximum lift height of 17.3 metres and weighs between 1, 230kg and 1,590kg. The 13.9 tonne/metre 6148B has a maximum lift height of 18.8 metres with an all up weight of between 1,680kg and 2,240kg. Finally, the top of the line 19.3 tonne/metre 6238B offers a lifting height of up to 23.3 metres and weighs between 2,280kg and 3,135kg.
All three cranes can be equipped with between one and six telescopic boom sections, or up to three manual sections in place of hydraulic sections. Ferrari’s A3J2 jib with three hydraulic and one manual section is available on the 6148B, while the A5J2 jib, with a similar configuration is available on the top of the range 6238B. The mechanically operated cranes are said to be very easy to use and repair, while offering a high level of reliability.
The new cranes benefit from improved structural components, paint prior to assembly, new hydraulic oil tanks, new outrigger controls, an improved load limiting device and a new, more user friendly control station. The HC-D4 electro-hydraulic valve block/distributor is an option, combined with a choice of radio remote controllers from Hetronic or Scanreco.
Other optional equipment includes a winch, additional hydraulic functions, oil cooler, working lights and an acoustic/visual alarm device.
Product manager Giuseppe Bevacqua said: "The restyling of these classic models, under both aesthetical and functional aspects, contributes to a dynamic approach to serve the most demanding markets and operators while also increasing the functionality and performance of Flli Ferrari’s non CE cranes."
