Koenig is bringing three new self erectors into the US

Three new models of self erecting tower cranes are available in the US and Canada, Koenig Cranes North America has announced. The K1035TKH, K1343TKH and K1545TKH cranes have lattice frame telescoping towers with hydraulic unfolding jibs and remote control.

The company says the cranes have “exceptionally tall service heights” (achieved by the use of a built in tower climbing system and inserted tower sections) matched to lifting capacities for each crane model.

The cranes’ lifting capacities can be increased by up to 20% with the use of the company's Power Lift option, giving the K1035TKH a maximum lift of 10,584 pounds, the K1343TKH a maximum lift of 13,228 pounds and the K1545TKH a maximum lift of 15,874 pounds. The TKH models can also be luffed at 10º or 30º to increase service height.

The series is designed to work with the company's “Free Standing Structural Frame System,” which allows its cranes an additional 20 feet elevation and is placed over and above sidewalks adjacent to city streets.

The first three TKH cranes entered service in Colorado, Texas, and British Columbia in June.
