Special transport company Meister has used a Palfinger PK 200002 L-SH knuckle boom hydraulic loader crane to lift trees into an office building in Frankfurt, Germany.

The trees, which form part of a winter garden, were lifted to a height of 30 metres through an open window of the Alpha Rotex building complex at Frankfurt Airport.

The PK 200002 L-SH was configured with eight hydraulic extensions and a fly jib, giving the crane a lifting height of 49 m. It was also fitted with the stability control system HPSC.

Other tasks for the PK 200002 L-SH included lifting plant tubs, soil and equipment needed to create the winter gardens.
