The USS Intrepid has taken well to its new role

as the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum in

New York, New York. After a very lengthy and

distinguished career as a Naval aircraft carrier, the

ship serves more than educating the public these

days. The vessel now provides a social role hosting

many events from film shoots and festivals

to trade shows and Bar Mitzvahs. With a prime

view of the New York cityscape, the “Fighting I”

provides the perfect venue for events and boasts

a capacity of up to 2500 people on its flight deck.

All the events that take place on the hangar and flight decks

provide the need for tables, chairs, exhibit displays, and other

supplies to be hauled up to these two areas on a regular basis.

That’s where the need for a crane arises. Being familiar with

PALFINGER cranes, Matt Woods, VP of Operations at the museum,

worked with Graywell Equipment, a PALFINGER dealer,

to find the right crane model for the job.

Previously, equipment and supplies were lifted using 2 service

cranes mounted on the side of the ship. Although effective, it still

left a lot of labor intensive work having to physically move everything

up two more levels to the flight deck. The PALFINGER

allows for loads to be easily lifted directly on to the deck. This

not only decreases the number of people it takes to physically

move the supplies, but improves safety since the

EDITORIAL ■

knuckle-boom eliminates the need to move bulky loads up and

down stairs and through tight corridors.

Joe DeNigris, General Manager of the Graywell Equipment,

served as Project Manager for the undertaking. After reviewing

the method in which the ship’s special events are coordinated,

a PALFINGER PK 16502 B Performance with a winch was

selected. Wood’s preferences also included a radio remote control,

HPLS (High Power Lifting System), and non-continuous

rotation with slewing limitation. It was important to have a

slewing limitation in order to prevent operators from unsafely

maneuvering loads over their heads. As an added precaution,

the remote controls were mounted to create a fixed station for

the operator to run the crane. The use of an “umbilical cord”

connected to the remote alleviated the need for a radio transmission

signal.

DeNigris acknowledged that PALFINGER has crane models

available with hydraulic outreaches that can extend down

directly to the pier. However, the smaller model with the winch

was the better choice for this application due to a tight work

area surrounded by structures and walk ways. The PK 16502 B

Performance has a vertical lift capacity of 2900 lbs at 32’. The 2.5

ton winch attached is specifically designed by PALFINGER for

PALFINGER knuckle-boom cranes. They work with the crane’s

overload protection system and have an anti-over spooling

feature as well as an anti-two-blocking system.

We once again find ourselves in the midst of another year sure

to be filled with opportunities and challenges alike. However,

this year isn’t teeming with the uncertainty we’ve had in recent

years. By no means are we letting our guard down, but we move

forward with cautious optimism and a notion that the worst

of the economic situation may finally be behind us. In fact, we

have done well in many aspects over the past year.

The world has changed and will continue to change. We have

aligned our organization to this new economic environment.

One way in which we accomplished this is by investing heavily

in new products, research and development, and our core competencies

to meet the demands of our customers with regard to

products, quality and service.

A review of the ship’s structure led to the decision that the

knuckle-boom could be placed on the side of the ship just off

the flight deck in the same spot where a “meatball” once sat.

The meatball was what sailors nicknamed the strobe lights used

to guide aircrafts to the landing strip. The pedestal was the

perfect location but not a perfect fit for the crane to be mounted

on. According to Greg Noone,VP of Sales at Graywell, “the

structure was unique in its shape, which prompted us to build

our own structure off site that could be affixed to it.”

Using a PALFINGER PK 150002 G with a PJ 170 E jib, Pinchas

“Pinky” Leitner of Lifting Solutions first set the crane’s power

pack which was custom designed in order to fit through narrow

doorways and into a small room of the ship. The PK 150 000

has a total reach of 124’ and a capacity of 150 mt so it was no

problem for the PALFINGER crane to lift its smaller sibling to

its destination. Pinchas mentioned that many of the considerations

for making the lift included how close the crane could be

positioned near the ship, overhead obstacles such as balconies

and walkways, along with the proximity of other structures

located on the pier. Overall the lift went well with Pinky commenting

that the performance of the PALFINGER crane was

“excellent, it ran smoothly”. ❚

The future may never again be like the past we were used to.

What it all comes down to is how we will look back at these

times. Will we choose to see them as the great recession or will

we view it as the times of change that reinforced our presence

in North America? The Palfinger North America Group,

with more than 550 employees in North America, keeps

executing the vision of becoming the preferred provider of

service and lifting equipment in North and Latin America. ❚

World’s Largest Tunnel Boring Machine

Relies on PALFINGER

Submitted by: Kristie Pohlman,

PUSCH/FOCUS Marketing and Customer Relations Specialist

Soon, Niagara Falls won’t be the only rush of water passing

through Ontario, Canada. Even though this new flow of water

will speed through at about 500 cubic meters per second, it

won’t become a popular tourist attraction. Ontario Power Generation

has employed Big Becky, their Tunnel Boring Machine

(TBM), to dig the world’s largest hard rock tunnel. The tunnel

will be 14.4 metres in diameter compared to the English Channel,

which measures 8.6 metres.

Strabag, Inc., is the Austrian company in charge of the project.

The project is expected to be completed by 2013 and will have

a major impact on the Ontario area in two ways. The hydro

electric tunnel will generate enough power to supply 160,000

homes with electric. The goal of the tunnel is to increase the

electric output and it is anticipated that the average annual output

will expand by 14%. The second way the tunnel will have an

impact is by diverting the river’s flow away from Niagara Falls

which will help reduce erosion and preserve the site for future

generations. A little known fact is that the flow of water over the

falls has been regulated for years to help control the natural erosion.

With the water flow being regulated between the U.S. and

Canada, tourists will continue to enjoy the beauty of the falls.

Big Becky has quite a job ahead of her after beginning the

journey of drilling the outlet at the Sir Adam Beck Complex.

The flat faced machine needs to travel 10.13 kilometers to her

destination which will be the water intake near the existing International

Water Control Dam. The machine has been boring

through all types of geological conditions including Queenston

shale, limestone, sandstone, and mudstone just to name a

few. Extra efforts have been made to ensure that the tunnel is

supported through anchors, wire mesh, steel ribs, a fabric-like

membrane, and a concrete process called shot-crete.

All this work can wear at poor Becky but leave it to PALFINGER

to make things better. Currently, four PK 18500 C knuckleboom

cranes are in use at the site, several more cranes on the

way. The TBM has three levels in which various functions

are carried out. The lowest level is the ground floor in which

vehicles come in and out of the project carrying workers,

materials, and concrete mixers. The area is extremely tight with

vehicles only able to move single file, so a lot of communication

and organization takes place in order to maintain traffic flow.

With so little room to maneuver, PALFINGER cranes come in

handy on the top levels.

The knuckle-booms are pedestal mounted and are operated

via special remote stations that contain the controls. The first

PALFINGER crane works closest to the action where trucks

carrying the materials needed for the project come in and park

below its position. The PALFINGER crane then reaches down

through an opening in the structure with a 5500 lb winch

mounted on the outer boom to lift the cargo to the appropriate

level and area. The winch is fast, has anti-two blocking, overload

protection, as well as an anti-over spool feature. The high performance

rope winch is specifically designed for PALFINGER

cranes. The second and third cranes are being utilized for a post

drilling effort that improves the tunnel’s overall integrity. When

all is said and done, they will have a total of 8 PALFINGER

cranes in service that will be used not only for material

handling but will also facilitate the efforts of the concrete and

membrane lining machines that are following behind the TBM

as it progresses.

Robert Goliasch, Equipment Engineer, explained that “all

the suppliers are important links in the process. When one is

missing, it affects the whole process.” Robert has a history with

working with PALFINGER cranes, in fact, he designed a two

PK 74002 crane lifting system for a project in Germany that

won our factory’s special dealer award in 2006 (see issue No. 13

of PALFINGER World Magazine).

In case you were wondering how the TBM (Tunnel Boring

Machine) received the nickname “Big Becky”; Goliasch explained

that the schools in the region were challenged to come

up with a name. Becky was chosen in honor of Sir Adam Beck.

Mentioned earlier, the Sir Adam Beck Complex also honors the

same man. He was an integral part of getting electricity to the

Niagara area back in early 1900’s.

So what will become of Big Becky, the world’s largest TBM,

once the project is complete? Robert said that every tunnel

project is unique so Becky will be dismantled. Many of the

TBM’s main components can be used for other projects while

the work platform that surrounds the machine will be cut up

for scrap metal. ❚

PALFINGER Proposal

Shapes Partnership

Submitted by: Kristie Pohlman,

PUSCH/FOCUS Marketing and Customer Relations Specialist

James Bradshaw, Owner/President of Crane & Equipment

Ltd. has provided quality lifting services on the island for over

15 years. His rental fleet of trucks and all terrain cranes serve

a wide variety of contractors and industries. James has a full

time mechanical engineer that provides lift consultations when

requested. They have since become the premier lifting consultants

for the area.

Crane & Equipment Ltd. receive many requests that can entail

anything from simply moving a tree to jobs requiring a multi

crane lift. Bradshaw mentions that some of the more unusual

requests have been moving pianos and even a large Buddha

statue. Typically they service the construction industry, both

residential and commercial. James said that his PALFINGER

cranes have come in handy, especially with their reach. “There

have been many times that we’ve needed to place trees in

scenic gardens without damaging the surroundings so a long

reach is a necessity.” Some of the other industries that his business

serves include utility, relocation, and disaster recovery.

On occasion, multi crane jobs such as setting metal trusses for

commercial buildings come up. Unloading box containers used

to be a multi lift job but James found that his PALFINGER

PK 75002 has cut the cost of moving the containers. Previously,

two trucks were needed due to weight restrictions. One truck

would have to transport the container while the other truck

carried the crane. He mentioned that one truck doing the

job of two has definitely been a cost savings. So where does

the partnership begin? You may ask. James had owned his

PALFINGER crane for a time and acquired parts from a local

provider but they were getting out of that business so he was

referred to Roy Samuel at ESP through a cousin. ESP (Equipment

Spare Parts), based out of Miami, Florida in the United

States, has been doing business internationally for over 42

years and in the Caribbean for 25 years. Roy, Vice President

of ESP, was able to easily supply Bradshaw with the parts he

needed.

James then found himself in need of a larger crane that would

best fit his unique requirements in the Barbados. It needed to

be durable, light weight, and as compact as possible to fit the

narrow jobsites that are common on the island. After doing

some research on the internet, he found that PALFINGER fit

all the criteria he was looking for. In 2004, he purchased a

PK 85002 for bigger projects. Things started moving quickly

after that. He knew he would need to go even larger so he

decided to look at a PALFINGER PK 150002. After much planning

and deliberation, he ended up with a stable, heavy duty

unit when the short twin steer truck was delivered.

Roy at ESP helped him to acquire the second crane. Samuel’s

resources allow him to be a multi national/multi product dealer.

He wasn’t a PALFINGER dealer at the time but was glad to

help James out. Somewhere during the process, PALFINGER

representatives Keith Giar, Large Crane Sales Manager and

Ruben Guida, Area Manager-Latin America & the Caribbean

became involved. They both “could see that these guys meant

business.” Especially when they considered that Roy sells up

to 400 ton crawler cranes. This prompted Giar and Guida to

approach the two to present the opportunity of becoming a

PALFINGER dealership.

Samuel and Bradshaw “strongly believe in the product” and

agreed that this would be a good opportunity for everyone.

Roy mentioned that having a good working relationship is key

stating that “you are only as good as the people that represent

you.” With this strong philosophy, James and Roy formed a

partnership that has been mutually beneficial. Samuel at ESP

takes the role of sales for the Caribbean and handles the importing

of the equipment while Bradshaw’s company, Crane &

Equipment, Ltd., provides the installation and after market

service on the island.

When asked about their working relationship with PALFINGER,

James and Roy confessed that they attach themselves to people

that they know will help them to succeed; Ruben and Keith are

two such people. ❚

Hooklift/Epsilon Combo “Grabs” Business at Gar-Binz

Submitted by Kristie Pohlman, Marketing & Customer Relations Specialist

NEW PRODUCTS


PALFINGER has broken new ground by selling its first

EPSILON crane in North America. The crane is actually a part

of a unit that combines two PALFINGER products, the

EPSILON Q150Z96 along with a HOOKLIFT T-24, for the

scrap and recycling industry. Gary Mac Lellan of Gar-Binz

Waste Removal Services, Ltd. in Edmonton, Canada is the

proud owner of this unique piece of equipment.

Hans Vooys, Sales Manager for PALFINGER American Roll-

Off, has worked closely with Gary and has said Mac Lellan

“puts the ‘E’ in Entrepreneur” and it’s easy to see why. Mac

Lellan has been involved with everything from being a “handy

man” to both light and heavy construction, and then on to

waste removal. Gary started his “handy man” business with

only $7 in his pocket and earned $20 for fixing a fence. The

small jobs became so plentiful that by end of the year, Gary

had earned nearly $100,000.

Over time, Gary grew his construction business to include

larger renovation projects. He found that the renovation work

generated a lot of trash. So much trash that the garbage haulers

couldn’t keep up with hauling it away. That’s when Gary

decided to purchase some rear loader garbage trucks of his

own. Those trucks changed the way he looked at waste from

that time forward. The compacting trucks were great and he

realized that there were more refuse opportunities available.

Mac Lellan is constantly forward thinking and decided to go

with a hook loader system so that bins could be delivered and

removed in a more convenient manner. Mac Lellan said “I

like to be ahead of the market, the recycling business is a $55

billion industry; I just want a little sliver of that pie.” Vooys

explained that PALFINGER offers an adjustable hook that is

simply a hydraulically telescopic jib that easily adjusts from 36”

to 54” pick up bar heights. This eliminates the concern over

having different bin sizes. With the flip of a switch, the hook is

extended or retracted without ever leaving the truck cab.

Knowing that Mac Lellan wanted to offer more recycling

and waste removal services, Vooys also introduced him to

PALFINGER’s EPSILON crane. These hydraulic

knuckle-boom cranes were designed for high

cycle, heavy-duty applications, such as forestry,

scrap processing and waste hauling. Gary

liked it so much that Hans invited him to

the North American headquarters in

Niagara Falls for a demonstration.

Once he saw it in action,

Gary knew he had to have

one. After seeing the crane

in action, he said “it’s like

an extension of your arm,

as quick as you think of what you want to do, it’ll do it; it’s that

fast”. Mac Lellan is currently using the EPSILON Q150Z96 and

T-24 HOOKLIFT for recycling and removal applications. As

Gary’s waste removal business grows, he has expressed “I’ll be

buying more Palfingers for sure”. He went on to say “I’m

glad PALFINGERs all the way, from talking with him at the

trade show to visiting the PALFINGER facilities; everyone has

been great”.

Gary is confident that he’ll be busy with his new EPSILON

crane since it is durable and built to handle jobs that require

continuous use while the hooklift is flexible and can handle

many container styles. Times may be tough, but Gary’s

customer focus, innovation, and forward thinking prove that

there are still opportunities out there. Thanks to PALFINGER’s

variety of equipment options, he’ll have many more. ❚

New Products Being Built at OSI

Submitted by Hakan Peterson,

President-MBB PALFINGER

New products are now being manufactured at the Omaha

Standard PALFINGER facility in Council Bluffs, Iowa in the

U. S. with the addition of the ILM (Interlift Medium Duty)

rail lift in the 4th quarter of 2009 we now have a medium

duty design added to the ILD (Interlift Direct Lift) heavy duty

column lift program. The ILM is designed to span capacity

range of 1600 lbs to 2500 lbs and the ILD with a capacity range

of 3500 lbs to 6600 lbs.

These two models represent about 90% of the common configurations

in these two segments. The typical ILM customer

uses a class 3 to 5 straight truck in either a cut-away chassis or

a cab chassis set up. These units have provided us with success

in many industries including bread delivery, home medical

supply, and concrete cutting. Other significant users include

tool supply companies and mobile medical MRI coaches that

utilize side mounted ILM style liftgates.

In the heavy capacity column lift market we offer the ILD

series in the 3500 to 6600 lbs models. The most popular sizes

sold are in the 4400 to 5500 lbs capacities. These units are

typically mounted on trailers although some are mounted

on straight trucks as well. These models are normally sold in

the food and beverage distribution industry for store chains

and restaurants. We are actively exploring other potential

industries to further increase our offerings into special niche

markets.

There are many reasons why customers prefer our products,

but two have the most impact. The ILM’s modular concept

is extremely robust and has a clean design. In testing a unit

recently mounted, we got a good feel for the ILM and experienced

its unyielding attributes for ourselves. It ran smooth

and felt much more rigid than what other lifts in this segment

normally provide. We continue to see many opportunities to

improve it further but we feel that we already have a winner at

this point in time.

The ILD, which entered into the market 6 months ago, has

some stiff competition from several key players that have relations

with major fleets. However, we are the only company in

the North American market that provides:

• E-coated liftgates

• Better energy consumption and power down on command

on the ILD

• Unique product features like built in cycle counters & diagnostic

trouble shooting

These advantages allow us to be aggressive in the market and

build relationships with fleet customers to grow our market

share even further. ❚

New Product Becomes a Reality for Omaha Standard

Submitted by Mark Whaley, Executive Vice President, Omaha Standard

In November of 2008, shortly after the acquisition of

Omaha Standard Incorporated, a planning session was held in

Omaha with various company representatives to explore the

potential of entering the mechanics truck and telescopic crane

market. It included a comprehensive view of primary markets,

channel strategy, and discussions as to how equipment could

be produced in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The project was approved,

implemented, and as of March of 2010 the company introduced

a complete line of telescopic cranes, mechanics truck

bodies, and hydraulically driven air compressors.

Designed as integrated “mobile service vehicle” packages,

these units are primarily utilized in the construction, mining,

railroad, and propane industries. It is important to note that

the North American market is distinctive because most repairs

are done at the jobsite rather than at a repair shop.

“This new product launch clearly defines the strengths and

benefits of a global company that identifies the specific

needs of area markets and shows the leadership position

of PALFINGER AG; and the PALFINGER North America

Group”, stated Michael Berger, Managing Director

PALFINGER North America Group “Our timelines have

been aggressive and the execution of our plans have involved

individuals from PALFINGER Omaha Standard, PALFINGER

North America and Palfleet.”

These new products provide the following features and product

line ranges:

• Capacities ranging from 43,000 ft-lbs (5.85 mt) to 86,000

ft-lbs (11.70 mt) with 4 new telescopic cranes offering superior

lift-to-weight ratios & hydraulic reach.

• 3 mechanics bodies designed for rugged applications utilizing

Omaha Standard PALFINGER’s e-coating capabilities

• 3 rotary screw & piston air compressors with air outputs of

35 – 60 CFM

• North American production at our facilities in Council

Bluffs, Iowa and branded under the PALFINGER name

Along with design, much planning was put into the logistics

at the facilities in Council Bluffs to produce the new products

as well as products integrated into Council Bluffs from MBB

PALFINGER. Omaha Standard also completed a new assembly

and test cell area at the plant, enhanced the existing paint facilities,

and concluded plans to bring in a shot blasting system

to complete the first phase of this project.

Omaha Standard PALFINGER’s VP of Manufacturing, Robby

Simard stated that “The Project has provided a great opportunity

for OSP to increase our capabilities and product offerings;

our workforce is very excited to take on these new challenges.”

He also said that the company is exploring plans to implement

a robotic welding cell for the production of the floors utilized

in all body production.

“We have designed this product around a message of innovation

by combining US manufacturing, service, and support

with European technology” stated Mark Woody, Managing

Director of the PALFINGER North America Group. “It has not

been easy to accomplish but we succeeded by building relationships

within the PALFINGER organization that will bring

added value to our distributors and ultimately to our. ❚

PALFINGER Led Swiss Brothers

to 10 Years of Success in Canada

Submitted by: Kristie Pohlman, Marketing and Customer Relations Specialist

Brothers Felix and Rolf Frick have made quite a name for

themselves in the greater Ontario area of Canada. In fact, you’d

be hard pressed to find a contractor in the area that hasn’t

heard of FRF Hydraulic & Fabrication Inc. Located in Brantford,

their PALFINGER Ontario service and installation center

has been the center of their operations since April of 1999. The

fully loaded 10,000 sq ft (929 sq m) facility allows easy access

to their customers.

So how did these two from Switzerland end up half way

around the globe? Perhaps it’s better to start at the beginning.

Felix and Rolf grew up on a farm in Switzerland. Felix had

been working for Kran & Hydraulik in Switzerland when he

grew familiar with PALFINGER equipment. During this time,

he became acquainted with many of the PALFINGER personnel

when they would visit the plant. They were so impressed

with his professionalism and skill that he was offered an opportunity

to come to North America to work for PALFINGER as a

Service Manager.

Rolf followed Felix to North America to start laying the

groundwork for their long term goal to create a business of

their own. Rolf, too, worked for PALFINGER and during their

days of working at the facility in Niagara Falls, the dynamic

duo became known as “Super Swiss” and “Silent Swiss”. Felix

was always a go getter and involved with many projects which

made him the Super Swiss while Rolf was equally hard working

but quiet and reserved. Rolf says that his silence was mostly

attributed to the fact that he didn’t pick up on the language and

culture as quickly as his brother so he was dubbed the Silent

Swiss.

The two are grateful for all the time they spent working for

PALFINGER at the North American Headquarters. “It was a

good start to get to know the culture and get set up” Rolf said.

They admitted that the biggest challenge they faced was dealing

with the cultural changes. The way that North American

culture was perceived in their homeland was greatly different

from what they actually experienced. They thought that opportunities

would come easier and be more plentiful. Felix said

that they found that the reality is that “Europeans are more

open to change where North Americans tend to stick with the

things they know.”

Felix mentioned that he was surprised that their dream of

having their own business came sooner rather than later. They

searched for land and their plans grew from that point on. In

April of 1999, Felix and Rolf opened FRF Hydraulic & Fabrication,

Inc. in Ontario, Canada. With over 30 years of combined

experience between them, the two are experts at servicing and

installing PALFINGER products. They are well known in the

area for their quality work and ability to custom build truck

bodies. FRF is committed to quality products. Rolf stated that

“Quality is more important than quantity.”

Late last

year, the brothers

celebrated ten years of being in business. It’s easy to

see why they’ve continued to be so successful. Felix feels that

companies are only as good as the people that work for you.

Clearly they have a great staff that is coupled with commitment

to their customers. Rolf said “We like to make sure people are

happy. We treat people how we would like to be treated.” He

went on to say “we try to give good quality products to the customer,

quality that we are proud to put our name on. If it leaves

the shop, it has to be right. Even if we have to lose money…. it

has to be right.” ❚

Training in Trenton Submitted by: Warren Kimble, General Manager, Omaha Standard, Inc.

At PALFINGER American Rolloff (PARO), Trenton NJ, we

believe a well informed employee is one key to success whether

its sales or service, a knowledgeable product specialist is important

to the customer. This is the reason we recently finished

our first sales training course, PARO 101. A sister to Palfinger

North America’s PALFINGER University, it was a good start to

training sales representatives for our new dealers. We felt that

if these dealers were to succeed it was imperative to help them

start off on the right foot.

Our course itinerary is extensive and covers three product

lines. They include: The American Roll-off which is a cable

based system, PALFINGER Hooklift, and American Hawk

Bulk Waste Crane. In a twenty-hour crash course we highlight

the features, which separates us from the competition. We

included some hands on training, as well as classroom time to

better acquaint everyone with the equipment.

Our training course was developed by a group of highly-qualified

people. Hans Vooys, Sales Manager of PARO has headed

up the group. Our technical service representative David

Klinger was responsible for gathering all the course information

and turning it into a curriculum, as well as leading the

Hooklift portion of the school. The sales staff of Steve Maiaroto

and Sam Matino are responsible for the Roll-Off portion,

with John Brooks taking care of the Bulk Waste Crane. Robin

Schwab Sales Coordinator, Lazar Marmur Head Engineering

and Warren Kimble, GM of PARO, lend support as needed.

So far, PARO 101 sales training has had great success. As one

participant said:

“It was my pleasure to attend PARO 101 and I needed the

training just as much as our sales staff. I was very pleased with

the overall course and I think all

participants

left with a

much higher level of knowledge regarding the PARO product

line. I’m excited about the potential that the hooks, cables and

hawks bring to the PALfleet organization and to my role within

the group in particular. The PARO team is a great group of

people and I really enjoy working with all of you. I look

forward to good times ahead!” Todd Sherrill, Product

Manager PALfleet Alabama.

With that being said I think we are on the right path to achieving

great things at PARO in Trenton. ❚

The attendees were able to have a hands
