Italian manufacturer F.lli Ferrari has added a 60tm family to its New Age line of truck-mounted cranes, which brings its portfolio to now span products from 1tm to 165tm lifting capacities.
A statement from the company said that the new models further strengthen its position in large size truck-mounted cranes, with the new family comprising two models: the 9601C – Standard Lifting Control System and the 9661C – Proportional Lifting Control System, with lifting capacity 10% greater than 9601C. Each of the two models come with two jib options – the J1206 Light Jib for lifting horizontally and the J2006 Heavy Jib for lifting vertically:
F.lli Ferrari added that the new light and compact cranes have the best lifting capacity currently available in this segment of the market, with higher payloads and faster operation. Standard features on the new models include double linkage, negative second boom angle, up to eight extensions, endless slewing and multifunction radio remote control. A wide range of accessories and options are also available in the 60tm family for optimising the cranes’ configuration according to the applications.
The statement added that the features on the New Age models that increase productivity and improve operator efficiency and safety include an Auto Levelling System, which automatically keeps the truck frame in a horizontal position, enabling best crane performance; an Operator Auto Detection, which automatically activates the operator’s closest stabiliser, avoiding the need for operator contact; Front Stabilizer control, which allows possible load in the front area, avoiding stress and overload of the truck frame; Compact Installation Kit, which guides the hoses through a different route, allowing a more compact installation of the crane on the truck; Dynamic Load Diagram, which provides advance verification of crane lifting capacity based on truck stability; and Magic Touch, which allows automatic folding and unfolding to transport and working positions.
The New Age Line is produced in Italy and, like all F.lli Ferrari cranes, designed in accordance with EN12999 and ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management and ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management certified.
