New Effer 1000 loader crane
By Alex Dahm11 February 2021
The Effer 1000 is a new 90 tonne-metre hydraulic loader crane that lifts 2.3 tonnes at its maximum outreach of 26 metres.
The manufacturer, owned by Hiab and in turn part of Cargotec, claims it as the first in its class with a nine-section boom with six jib extensions. It weighs 9,500 kg and can be installed on trucks small enough for use in urban areas, the company said. Its capacity at height is thanks to the V10-Force decagonal boom shape, Hiab said, where sideways movement is minimised by the design.
Target applications are heavy loads placed at height – up to (up to 5,800 kg at 23 metres – between tall buildings on narrow streets in urban areas. “We have listened to our customers and created a game-changing Effer loader crane that delivers the best vertical performance in its class. Effer 1000 is a heavy loader crane with the competing vertical reach and lifting capacity of a super heavy crane without the need for the bigger trucks. This flexibility allows them to work in tighter urban spaces and save money,” said Marcel Boxem, Hiab global product management director.
Effer 1000 has the Progress 2.0 control system to assist the operator in avoiding overloads. It also allows data recording for preventive maintenance scheduling, plus other fleet management and connected digital functionality.
