46 • April 2019 INNOVATIONS REPORT TRUCK-MOUNTED CRANES PM Cranes articulating models run from 1.5- metric ton to 100-plus metric ton capacity for a variety of applications. The PM Medium and Heavy Series are especially geared to precast concrete. The Medium range includes the PM 16, 21.5 S, 26.5 S, 36.5 S and 38.5 SP models, rated at 13- to 34-mt capacities and manufac- tured with up to seven or eight extensions. The Heavy range includes the PM 65SP, 100SP, 150SP and 210 SP models, with ratings of 54 to 150 mt. The manufacturer presents PM Series as optimal mobile crane packages that maximize payload. A team of engineers and service technicians based out of Texas headquarters supports all cranes in the field and aims to maximize the uptime for owners and operators. Aftermarket service and technical support are also handled out of Texas or through nationwide dealer network. — Manitex Inc., Georgetown, Texas; 512/942-3046 Hiab USA Manufacturer offers truck- mounted knuckle boom cranes in the 28- to 90-ton meter range for precast concrete product delivery and transfer. It demonstrated the newest safety feature, Variable Sta- bility Logic Plus, at the 2019 Precast Show. VSL+ regulates crane capacity in relation to actual vehicle stability by sensing each stabilizer leg's position and load. It also fac- tors the ballast effect of any load or product remaining on the bed after each pick. In optimal stabilizer placement, VSL+ maximizes crane capac- ity throughout a transfer cycle, and affords operators near full capacity when sites or conditions limit leg posi- tioning. — Hiab USA Inc., Perrysburg Ohio, 800-852- 2331; Business Development Manager Terry Fidler tests the VSL+ feature in the Precast Show demonstration area.
