Palfinger PK65002

Meet the crane that changed the way Braymore does craning in Ontario. The Palfinger PK65002 was the perfect blend of power, distance and special features that our customers were looking for. People literally stopped traffic while driving to see this crane in motion. We did not have to sell this crane, one view of how it worked and people were sold, asking for business cards so that they could use it on their next lift.

This crane was way ahead of its time compared to anything else in the city when it came out.

So you are probably asking, what makes it so special?

  1. It can lift 1500 pounds out to a 100 feet in any direction.
  2. It can lift 5000 pound out to 45 feet in any direction.
  3. It is a knuckle crane which allows it to bend the boom in the middle.
  4. It has a flatbed deck which also allowed it to carry some freight, removing the need of a second delivery truck on some jobs.
  5. The crane operates by radio remote control. The crane operator can literally stand anywhere he/she wanted. This removed the need for hand signals on a lot of jobs, reducing errors on job sites.
  6. It deploys in a much smaller footprint then your traditional stick crane. Allowing it to be used in locations that other cranes could not work.
  7. It deploys faster then most other cranes. Reducing the amount of time that you needed the crane on site.
  8. The boom not restricted to the 45 degree tip restriction placed on stick cranes. It can literally reach straight out horizontally and do a full pickup with the boom right down at the ground.
  9. The knuckle boom allowed it to do more precision lifts then your regular crane.
  10. It just looks amazing to watch.

Can we all say: “Better bang for your buck!”

For a crane of this size, it is cutting edge technology.
