Gibsons adds to haul of Palfinger-equipped trucks22 January 2019

Haulage firm Gibsons of Kendal has taken delivery of the first of two new vehicles specified with Palfinger cranes.

The new arrival is a Palfinger PK 78002 SH D crane with flatbed body, mounted to a new generation Scania R500 8x2 truck.

A second truck, with the same spec, will be delivered in the summer, taking the number of Palfinger cranes in operation at the family-run haulier to ten.

The Palfinger PK 78002 SH D high performance crane offers a lifting capacity of 4850kg at 13.7m full extension. It includes Palfinger’s High Performance Stability Control (HPSC) system, which uses sensors in stabilisers to calculate working ranges for any slewing angle and stabiliser position.

Palfinger UK was formed last year, when TH White Lorry Cranes acquired Scottish Palfinger distributor Outreach Truck (see link below).
