KNUCKLE BOOM CRANES


Designed to succeed in locations where other cranes can’t.

It's no surprise that knuckle boom cranes are gaining in popularity in the U.S. They prevail in situations when other cranes aren't feasible such as inside structures, on bridges and atop roofs. By utilizing a compact counter-weight system, PSC's knuckle boom cranes require a footprint that is a fraction of the size of most cranes, which makes them ideal for loading, lifting and handling tasks in tight spaces at nuclear plants. Despite their compact size, our boom cranes are powerful.

Advantages Over Traditional Cranes
• Flexibility of applications
• Optimized load control
• Superior lift to weight ratios when compared to telescopic or stick booms
• More affordable/reduced project costs
• Rapid mobilization, setup and demobilization

PSC's knuckle boom cranes and experienced operators will travel anywhere in the continental U.S. We maintain all of our equipment in a ready-status to expedite delivery and minimize or completely eliminate service calls. In addition, our cranes can be custom-configured to meet your specific needs.

PM 100 SP
Thanks to its new design, this crane is more compact and functional than ever! The extension boom crane's new octagonal profile increases loading performance and accuracy while also improving safety. It is controlled by independent cylinders mounted alternately on top of the boom pack. This design reduces the deflection of the extension booms under load, which increases stability and allows the operator to work with maximum speed and precision. The PM 100 SP offers unbeatable hydraulic outreach.

The basic crane is available with four, six, eight and nine hydraulic extensions. In addition, its fly jib is available with four or six hydraulic extensions, providing a total horizontal outreach of 110 feet and vertical outreach of 122 feet.
