Palfinger introduced its latest products, the PAL Pro 58 Mechanics Truck and PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane, exclusively at Work Truck Week in Indianapolis, Indiana.

“We are excited to launch these new solutions in North America. Our focus is on customer satisfaction and creating products tailored to address the unique demands of the region, ensuring our customers can achieve their goals with greater ease and efficiency,” said Ismael Daneluz, Palfinger vice president of sales and service for North and Latin America.

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.

PAL Pro 58 Designed for Service Truck Needs

Manufactured with 12-gauge all A-60 galvanneal steel and a hybrid torsion box, Palfinger said the PAL Pro 58 effectively eliminates frame and side pack deflection. It also features a comprehensive 12-step e-coat process for corrosion protection.

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 and welders, headache racks, and toolboxes. Additionally, it boasts improved lighting packages to support remote work and nighttime operations.

With an 8,600 lb. lift capacity and a 58,000 ft. lbs. moment rating, Palfinger said both the PAL Pro 58 and the PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane continue the company’s tradition of integrating advanced safety features.

PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane Provides Streamlined Operation

The PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane’s 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 (LMI) as a standard feature in this new Palfinger service crane provides operators with real-time load-on-hook information, enhancing safety and efficiency.

The PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane is available in 22 and 31 feet of reach. Two interchangeable proportional remote control styles are also available to fit the operator’s preference.

Designed Based on End-User Input

Palfinger said these latest products were developed through direct engagement with end-users, ensuring that every feature addresses real-world requirements.

Brian Heffron, Palfinger North America vice president for sales and service, service cranes and crane bodies, emphasized the collaborative efforts in the design process of the new PAL Pro 58 and PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane.

“We recognize the unique challenges faced by field mechanics and operators. Their inputs are invaluable in ensuring that these products can surpass their needs for productivity and efficiency, especially under tough conditions,” said Heffron.  “They’re designed to excel in job sites where only the most reliable equipment can succeed.”
