Product Highlights from IAA

Truck Mounted Forklifts

Truck-mounted forklifts are kind of an unknown territory for Daniel. But our expert Franz Hettegger, Product Manager & Area Sales Manager Truck Mounted Forklifts, arouse some curiosity. Therefore, Daniel grabbed the opportunity to test them out himself.


As an EPSILON operator himself, the new GENERATION 3 was of particular interest to Daniel. Our new crane does not only offer the highest outreach of its class. The centralized greasing options and our innovative feature Smart Control make it efficient and smart at the same time.

PK 250 TEC

It's time to get TECnical! Daniel was really excited to learn a lot more about our latest innovation - the brand new PK 250 TEC. Stefan Oberleitner, Product Line Leader Loader Cranes, Marine & Wind Crane, took a technical deep dive with him. Daniel was especially impressed that it is possible to run the crane fully electrically while it's not using up much of the truck's battery.

Tail Lifts

Daniel stopped by our Tail Lifts booth during his visit to Hanover. Our expert Fotis Sfedonis, Managing Director PALFINGER Tail Lifts, gave him insights into our highlights at IAA. The conclusion? Our products have become lighter, safer and more efficient.


PALFINGER Lubricants are an integral part of the performance of our products and their overall lifetime. After Daniel had an interesting discussion with Christian Steiner, Director After Sales Service EMEA, he came to a pretty clear conclusion: Prevention is better than cure.

Enabling smarter operations for our customers and supporting them over the entire product lifecycle. We further offer our customers smart lifting solutions that offer more functionality and added value. Our Smart Functions are only the starting point for turning hard work into intelligent work.

We know the time has come for a sustainable future. Reducing CO2 emissions and noise by offering electric solutions to the fast-growing e-mobility industry is one of our priorities.

After years without trade fairs, we are looking forward to meeting our customers and partners again. Visit us and experience our solutions at IAA.

Reach anything with our Lifting Solutions

We are not only providing our customers a product or service but a complete solution. With this vision, we are always aiming for making the customers' jobs and lives safer, smarter, more efficient, and convenient.

Together with our partners, we want to enable our customers to experience smarter operations and offer them service support over the entire product lifecycle.

Introducing Smart Lifting Solutions

What's a lifting solution and how does it support customers in their job-to-be-done? If a complete vehicle with lifting equipment is just the beginning, where does the vision go? And if semi-automated features are already on the market this year, when are we steering cranes remotely? This and much more Daniel discussed with our PALFINGER experts.

From Product to Solution

More than a product supplier. Andreas Hille, SVP Global Product Line Management / R&D, offers Daniel valuable insights into how PALFINGER covers their customers' entire value creation process and makes it smarter, safer, and more efficient.

Integrated Solutions

Daniel had some tough questions for Gerhard Sturm, SVP Global Sales & Service. What exactly is an integrated lifting solution and even more important: Which benefits do they offer to the customer?

Remote Operation

While visiting us in Austria, Daniel spotted one of our marine cranes. This did not only spark an interesting conversation about the specific requirements in the marine sector, but he also learned that remote solutions are already reality in PALFINGER's offshore segment.

Complete Solutions

The installation of a product might be as important as the solution itself. Our Mounting Competence Centers help us offer our customers solutions that fit their specific needs. In order to handle future challenges like digitalization and electrification, complete solutions will become more and more important for PALFINGER claims Gerhard Luger, Head of Sales & Outbound PM Installations.

We turn hard work into smart work

We digitize the customer journey with smart solutions to make all touch points easier and more sustainable for our customers.

We offer them smart lifting solutions that provide more functionality and added value. ​Do you want to learn more about our smart solutions? Check out our "Road to IAA with Daniel from Ashville" video series and visit us at IAA Transportation 2022 in Hanover.

Our Smart Solutions

Turning hard work into smart work. With our smart solutions, we take the next step. Putting the customer in the focus of our thinking, we offer solutions that make their daily work life smarter and thus easier.

Smart Control Loader Cranes

Johannes Mayrhuber, Inbound Product Manager Crane Equipment, introduced Daniel to PALFINGER's new innovation, an intuitive control of the crane tip: the Smart Control. But what does he think about it? Check for yourself!

A New Generation

Our EPSILON GENERATION 3 combines comfort with purpose-specific technologies. On top of that, you can combine it with the Smart Control assistance system. Daniel (literally) grabbed the opportunity and tested it right away - check it out!

Go Digital

For PALFINGER digitalization starts and ends with its customers. How do new technologies and smart solutions help YOU in your daily doing? Check out what insights Philipp Smole, VP Corporate Incubator PALFINGER 21st and Digital Transformation Officer, gave Daniel.

Dancing with the cranes

Stefan Oberleitner - Product Line Leader Loader Cranes, Marine & Wind Crane - compares the Paltronic 180 to a state-of-the-art computer. But which advantages does it offer to the operator? As always, Daniel had his questions ready for our expert.

Instant Impact

Daniel knows his Tail Lifts well, but there were still a few things our experts were able to educate him on, especially on our new Impact App and how it makes everybody's life easier.

Reach anything with low emissions

We understand that the world is at a turning point and that the time has come for a sustainable future. According to the EU decision, no cars and light commercial vehicles with combustion engines are to be sold from 2035. Already today, many cities in Europe have access restrictions for such trucks. ​

Our goal is to switch to alternative drive lines and thus also reduce CO2 emissions and noise when using our solutions. ​That is why PALFINGER is launching its complete implementations and solutions at this year's IAA.

Eco-Efficient Solutions

We put the customer at the center of our thinking. Not only offering efficient solutions but at the same time reducing CO2 emissions and noise. For a sustainable future.

E-Mobility - What is next?

Electrically driven vehicles and products are a hot topic at the moment. A lot of opportunities, but also a lot of questions and customer-specific needs. Daniel and Stefan Oberleitner - Product Line Leader Loader Cranes, Marine & Wind Crane - had an interesting conversation about the current development of eMobility in the construction business.

Less emission, less noise

Philipp Smole, VP Corporate Incubator PALFINGER 21st and Digital Transformation Officer, gives Daniel insights into how PALFINGER is making its solutions more energy-efficient. Also, Daniel learns more about the eWorX module - an interface, which is making sure that all devices can be operated on an electric base.

Electric Solutions are key

Andreas Hille - SVP Global Product Line Management / R&D - explains to Daniel, why electric solutions are important to PALFINGER and how we can offer solutions that are as efficient as possible.


As the world market leader for innovative crane and lifting solutions, we have had a remarkable success story since 1932.

The benefits of these new applications are obvious: within a few minutes and clicks, users receive an answer to their model and installation questions.



PALFINGER sets standards in terms of long service life and ease of use. At the IAA, we will present tail lifts from 500 to 2,000 lifting capacity, including the world's first all-skeleton V 500 platform. In addition to the standard platforms, we will be showing our revised FerroStar platform.



The new IMPACT app ensures that drivers, service partners and fleet managers can identify and solve tail lift problems in the shortest possible time. Thanks to precise error messages, the service partner understand the problem right away. Spare parts can be ordered via the 24/7 webshop. Customer-specific software programmes ensure efficient and safe day-to-day operations. They can be installed immediately upon delivery or retrofitted during operation.
