PH Crane range from Penny Hydraulics

29 April, 2015

Penny Hydraulics has launched its new range of fully hydraulic PH Cranes. Introduced to meet the needs of the 1 to 18 tonne UK commercial vehicle market, the range offers over 470 lightweight, user-friendly and innovative models. It has between 0,5 and 5 tm lifting capacity with boom reaches up to 6.83 metres. A variety of optional extras and accessories are available including full stability control, high speed hoists and radio remote controls.

The new PH Crane range incorporate full hydraulic control for even the lightest units. This type of control prevents the need to access the bed of the vehicle and coupled with the use of proportional controls, helps ensure smooth and precise load handling with reduced risk of the sudden and unexpected movements that can cause accidents to users and bystanders.

PH Cranes, which are fitted with a variety of modern safety features, are powered via the vehicle battery and are therefore supplied in either 12V or 24V. Alternatively, where P.T.O. is available on the vehicle, a crane can be specified to suit.

Safety advantage

A choice of remote controls is available. Remote controls are especially useful from a safety point of view because they reduce the need for operators to stand in close proximity to the load therefore, increasing operator safety. Two types of control are available. The first is attached to the crane by a length of cable known as a wander lead while the second is a wireless device that provides the user with complete autonomy to stand in any position with the best all-round view of the working area.

The new designs are highly compact, both in working and in transport position maximising important, usable space on the vehicle. Throughout the range, weight has been removed where possible without compromising on performance and safety. Operators can install a PH Crane with confidence that there is minimum impact on the overall vehicle weight leaving more carrying capacity for improved operational flexibility and productivity. Although this helps with all types of vehicle it is especially useful for those in the 3.5t and 7.5t classes where remaining within the overall weight and carrying capacity limits are always of concern to operators.

Durable yet lightweight

Manufactured from the latest high quality steels, including Domex and Weldox, crane structures are high strength and durable yet lightweight, helping to reduce emissions, maximise fuel economy and maximise payload.
