Lifting Equipment Supplier in South Africa

We Are A Supplier of A Large Selection of Lifting Equipment

Lifting equipment comes in a lot of shapes and sizes for a variety of applications. From basic forklifts for the workhouse to large truck-mounted knuckle-boom cranes that can handle the weight of boats and cars. Industrial and commercial businesses need quality lifting equipment. These machines are considered indispensable in warehouse operations as well and at worksites. Conveniently, some lifting equipment can even be mounted on trucks. 600SA Holdings is a supplier of a selection of knuckle-boom cranes to businesses in South Africa.

The basic purpose of lifting equipment is to lift and load pallets, building materials, and other heavy items that would otherwise be very difficult or nearly impossible to lift and move. Truck-mounted knuckle-boom cranes are unique in design and very effective in execution. Apart from the fact that they can be mounted onto the back of a truck, these cranes are designed to be mobile and agile. 600SA is a supplier of a range of such lifting machinery to industries in South Africa.


Knuckle-Boom Cranes

Knuckle-boom and lattice-boom cranes may have a similar job but are worlds apart in concept. A lattice-boom crane, which is a very common type of lifting equipment, has a boom with various sections. These sections can be extended in a linear fashion along the length of the crane to give them a better reach. Knuckle booms, on the other hand, flips the script on conventional mobile lifting equipment, and 600SA is a supplier of these cranes in South Africa.

As is the case with a lattice boom, a knuckle-boom crane uses sections that are coupled to one another. However, in the case of a knuckle boom, these sections are coupled by mechanical “knuckles” to allow it to extend and retract. The body extends and retracts from the base of the crane in the same way that a human finger would. The base can also be rotated to grant the crane a wide radius of operation from a stationary position. The bending nature of a knuckle boom means that it is a unique and very effective piece of lifting equipment.

We are a supplier of this type of lifting equipment in South Africa, delivering a comprehensive selection of truck-mounted knuckle-boom cranes to choose from. Our range of Penz cranes includes specially designed and developed lifting equipment for both the recycling and forestry industries. These cranes can simply be mounted onto the back of a transportation truck to eliminate the need to have a secondary vehicle to do the picking up and loading. We also offer a wide selection of Fassi truck-mounted cranes that can be used for a plethora of applications, whether commercial or industrial.
