FARMA 8.5 Log Crane

Regular price $0.00

The C8.5, the largest crane in the FARMA range has a reach of 28' including the 2 hydraulic extensions totalling 10'. The 8.5 lifts 705lbs at full reach and nearly 4550lbs near the king post. The turnhouse produces nearly twice as much power as the other models. The hydraulic hoses are well protected inside the lift arm and solid steel pipes are used for the extension.

All the cranes are based on a new arm system comprising a link system between the lift arm and the outer arm. Thanks to their design, the cranes offer the very best close range properties, a smoother operation and an outer arm that is equally powerful through the working range. The linkage makes the work area adjacent to the crane column/railing much easier and smoother.
