Palfinger launches PAL Pro 58 Mechanics Truck and PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane

The truck and crane are optimized for Class 5 chassis applications, Palfinger said.

Palfinger has announced two new products, the PAL Pro 58 Mechanics Truck and PSC 8600 TEC Service Crane. The announcements were made at Work Truck Week in Indianapolis.

Optimized for Class 5 chassis applications, Palfinger says 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 is manufactured with 12-gauge all A-60 galvanneal steel and a hybrid torsion box, and the company says it “effectively eliminates frame and side pack deflection.” It also features a 12-step e-coat process for corrosion protection.

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

The PAL Pro 58 and the PSC 8600 TEC service crane have an 8,600 lb. lift capacity and a 58,000 ft./lbs. moment rating. The Service Crane’s design relocates the winch to a boom-mounted position, streamlining operation and addressing cable concerns, and includes an integrated overload protection system. Load Moment Indication (LMI) is a standard feature that provides operators with real-time load-on-hook information.

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