The HMF 1730-K Series – suitable for fast grab work far away from the vehicle
HMF’s latest generation of crane loaders in the 17 tm range has been developed and designed to solve many different lifting tasks. Advanced methods of calculation have been used when designing the crane’s components and geometry, to ensure that cranes offer a power-to-weight ratio amongst the best on the market. HMF focuses heavily on crane safety and incorporates “safety first” in all crane functions. HMF is the only manufacturer to offer a totally integrated user-friendly safety system, which only interferes when absolutely necessary.
The HMF 1730-K Series is constructed as a strong and versatile working tool. The crane is available with up to 6 hydraulic extensions and 15° over-bending between the main boom and the jib, which provides high flexibility for demanding tasks in narrow places, e.g. through low gates and windows. The crane is equipped with a link arm on the jib, which provides high lifting capacity, even when the boom system is fully extended. The crane is suitable for fast grab work and for loading and unloading tasks at a low height far away from the vehicle. The 1730-K Series is equipped with a user-friendly speed control, which at the same time provides an increased lifting capacity. This system is activated when the load moment of the crane approaches its maximum capacity and therefore optimizes the operator’s ability to finely adjust the movements of the crane. Stabilizer beams are available either with fixed stabilizer legs, manual swing-up legs to 60° or hydraulic swing-up stabilizer legs up to 180°. This flexibility makes all kinds of mounting on the vehicle possible. Whether the requirement is fast grab work or lifting at long reach, the HMF 1730-K Series is the right crane. As a part of a wide range of product enhancing optional extras for the HMF 1730-K Series, both winch and extra valves led in either hose guides or hose reels can be specified.
