New F.lli Ferrari cranes deliver design, innovation and performance


F.lli Ferrari is proud to announce the launch of the first two families of a completely new line of F.lli Ferrari Cranes. The 13-16 tm class, the first part of the new line to be launched, comprises 12 models:

7130D & 7162D
13 tm and 16 tm class telescopic boom cranes. Designed to be used in car recovery and in all other applications where a compact, light and easy to operate crane is needed.

7130B & 7160B
13 tm and 16 tm class articulated boom cranes. Perfect solution for cost and performance in loading and unloading operations.

7131C, 7143C, 7153C, 7161C, 7171C & 7183C
13 tm to 18 tm top performance articulated cranes. Equipped with double linkage boom system. Made for complex lifting applications and high demanding users.

7131SC & 7161SC
13 tm and 16 tm class short boom articulated cranes with double linkages. Designed for high loads delivery. Installation on compact wheelbase trucks. Used in construction applications.

Extending the range
More tm classes will be added to the new line over the next 2 years, extending the range from 8 to 150 tm.

A structured design and build process from concept to field operation has included ergonomic review, 3D development, Finite Element Analysis, prototype production, laboratory testing and field-based customer acceptance tests. The result is an innovative family of new cranes with top performance and a high level of modularity between models which delivers ease of use and ease of maintenance.

Innovations include Dynamic Load Diagram, totally new in the truck-mounted crane industry, which allows verification in advance of the crane lifting capacity based on the actual truck stability; and Magic Touch which allows the driver to open automatically the crane from transport position to working position and back to transport position when required. Both of these features improve driver attention and can save time and increase productivity.

Dedicated ergonomic studies and user preferences have created the most ergonomic working position and user-friendly interface. These facilitate accurate and safe operation through the control station which includes crane controls and stabiliser controls. Radio remote controls are available, as options, for CE and NOT CE models.

Other features include:
-Wide, 425°, best in class slewing angle
-Regenerative valve delivering higher speed crane extension
-Range of accessories, including rotators, buckets and bricks attachments
-LED lights on booms and controls for night working
-Certification to ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management and ISO 14000 Environmental Management
