PALFINGER Mechanics Truck and Service Crane

In a landmark effort to set new industry benchmarks, PALFINGER, the global leader in innovative crane and lifting solutions, proudly introduced its latest products – the PAL Pro 58 Mechanics Truck and PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane – exclusively at Work Truck Week in Indianapolis.

Optimized for Class 5 chassis applications, the PAL Pro 58 and PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane are engineered to deliver extended reach, weight reduction and superior performance.

The PAL Pro 58 represents a leap forward in mechanics truck design. Manufactured with 12-gauge all A-60 galvanneal steel and a hybrid torsion box, the PAL Pro 58 effectively eliminates frame and side pack deflection. It also features a comprehensive 12-step e-coat process offering the best corrosion protection available today.

Available in 11-foot body configurations, the PAL Pro 58 is designed to cater to a wide range of service truck needs. It includes bolt-on mounting locations for essential accessories, such as compressors, welders, headache racks and toolboxes. Additionally, it boasts improved lighting packages to support remote work and nighttime operations.

With an 8,600-pound lift capacity and a 58,000-foot-pound moment rating, both the PAL Pro 58 and the PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane continue PALFINGER’s tradition of integrating advanced safety features. The PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane’s innovative design relocates the winch to a boom-mounted position, streamlining operation and addressing cable concerns, while the integrated overload protection system ensures operational reliability. The inclusion of Load Moment Indication as a standard feature in this new PALFINGER service crane provides operators with real-time load-on-hook information, enhancing safety and efficiency.
