More than just height
Klaas mobile cranes have an unmistakable appearance thanks to their eye-catching boom system and full panelling with lockable storage compartments. Not only do they reach extreme heights but also excellent reach values even under high loads. Well thought out down to the last detail, they are always based on the needs of their users, allowing them to work conveniently and efficiently. Thanks to their enormous ranges, it is easy to transport materials even to the far side of the roof on a large building without repositioning the crane.
The Klaas boom system
The most striking trademark of a Klaas crane is its boom. This consists of high-strength aluminium profiles made from a special alloy and is produced in the stir welding process. It thus provides a strength as if milled from solid metal, a long service life and low maintenance costs. Its low net weight ensures outstanding reach values, as every kilogram less in the mast benefits the range and load capacity.
The patented Klaas winch technology enables quick and secure telescoping under load – even when the boom is inclined at a flat angle. Four telescope cables are assembled on a single drum, whilst the track system is fixed into the cable technology. As the cables are guided and electrically monitored, slack ropes and skipping are prevented. An integrated electronic length measurement constantly records the current extension length of the boom and uses the data to calculate the maximum possible load capacity.
Another feature of the Klaas boom is the extremely strong fly jib, which considerably increases the maximum hook height when extended and enables a lateral range of action. Roof areas at the back can be supplied with material in this way when scaffolding or eaves prevent the main mast from being extended any further.
The Klaas support system
Pressing a button on the remote control starts the setting up of the crane and the automatic self-levelling. This ensures that all the outriggers have the same pressure and that the appliance is perfectly sturdy. Furthermore, the L-shape of the outriggers guarantees the best possible stability. Thanks to the fully hydraulic support system, it is possible to move each single support infinitely and accurately into position. Their long, vertical cylinders save them from being laboriously propped up on uneven terrain. As the outrigger widths can also be infinitely adjusted, even scaffolding, hedges or narrow alleys do not create an obstacle.
The ASC control system permanently monitors the stability of the appliance in crane and lifting platform mode and shows this via the remote control. At the same time it also takes changing wind or ground conditions into account.
The Klaas crane control system
Every Klaas crane has an ultra-modern safety control system (PLC) for the crane and lifting platform mode. A modern CAN bus control block with a soft start/stop function enables particularly delicate and precise work and prevents the boom from swinging dangerously.
A radio remote control with LCD display enables the crane to be operated from different positions. With the aid of a memory function, two target points can be learned within which the crane moves automatically and safely in hold-to-run operation. This makes it easy to move to blind spots and to unload quickly at positions that are repeatedly stopped at.
All the important information, such as the boom’s angle of inclination and rotation, hoisting cable speed or maximum lifting capacity, can be read at a glance on the remote control's display. It is efficiently supplied with power via standard batteries or via cables – a key plus point should the wireless network be interrupted.
Klaas uses three different remote control models, ‘S’, ‘L’ and ‘XL’. These are identical in terms of their basic functions, but differ in the outer form. The standard equipment depends on the respective type of crane, but it can be replaced with another model as an option. What is more, every aluminium crane can be equipped with a second radio remote control. The benefit: in case of difficult-to-see positions, e.g. on the back of the roof, another employee can take over the control of the crane and complete the job.
The Klaas drive concept
When buying a mobile crane, customers can choose between different drive concepts:
Separate diesel engine
A diesel engine integrated in the superstructure provides the necessary power. It is optimally adjusted to crane operation in terms of performance and consumption. Since it works independently, the truck engine is protected. The tank level is monitored electronically and displayed via the remote control. This drive concept is characterised by low fuel consumption and thus benefits the environment and the wallet.
Hybrid drive in two different variants
Electric motor combined with a diesel engine or
Electric motor combined with a PTO auxiliary drive of the truck engine
With both variants, the advantages of the electric motor are obvious: it operates particularly quietly and without polluting exhaust gases. In addition, the 400-volt motor can be operated extremely cost-effectively via the 32-ampere site power distributor.
Depending on the variant, the crane driver can use the diesel engine or the auxiliary drive of the truck engine for short-term operations or on smaller construction sites without access to electricity: The diesel engine scores with the fact that it works separately and independently of the truck engine. This protects the engine and reduces the number of operating hours. It is low in consumption and can therefore be operated at low cost.
With the PTO auxiliary drive, on the other hand, the much larger truck engine must be used. Even if it runs at low speed in crane operation, the consumption is considerably higher compared to the diesel engine. Advantage: The costs for an additional engine and its maintenance are eliminated.
