Palfinger Sany is preparing to launch the first two cranes resulting from its European Joint Venture.
The first two models will be the 25 tonne three axle QY25C crane with 33.5 metres of boom and the four axle 50 tonne QY50C with a 42.5 metre five section boom. Both units are Chinese built truck cranes adapted to suit Russian market conditions and preferences. The new cranes will be unveiled at next week’s CTT show in Moscow.
Palfinger says that its quality managers have supervised the production of these new cranes in Changsha, in order to ensure that the products meet European standards. The cranes meet Euro 4 requirements and already have a full set of GOST certification for the Russian market.
The cranes carry a 2,250 hour or 18 months warranty with spare parts and components stocked at a warehouse in Moscow. A local Russian sales and technical support team has also been put in place in time for the launch.
