    How reliable are palfinger crane Electronics?

    How reliable are palfinger crane Electronics?

    Gareth, The electronics that Palfinger uses are some of the best on the market. The older style electronics your talking about have been long gone. The Pal50 and 150 are very dependable.

    Used PK65002-SH D PJ170E JV1 for sale

    I'm more than happy to install it. Yes it can be rear mounted. The only reason I posted it that way was because our build times are always beyond what most guys want to hear. We are involved with all aspects of the building trade so our shop stays busy.
