In keeping with our committment to our customer base in the midwest, Runnion Equipment Company is now a distributor for Palfinger Crayler - Transportable Forklifts.  The Palfinger Crayler line includes six models of forklifts, each of which can be loaded and unloaded from the back of a truck in less than a minute. 

Runnion will be providing our full range of service, parts and rental of the Crayler product line. 

The Palfinger Crayler forklifts are designed to be easy to transport. They are lightweight to put less stress then the competition models on the truck or trailer that is carrying them. They also feature forward wheel mount support pads to take pressure off the forks which minimizes bounce and ensures a smooth ride when in the transport mode.

Ideal over rough terrain and in tight spaces, the forklifts are sufficiently versatile for any type of work, such as delivering brick, block, lumber and wallboard. In operation, the location of the operatore seat provides excellent views of the center of the load.

The Crayler CR moving mast series is designed for the customer who needs serious terrain ability. The toughest job sites are no obstacle for this units’ powerful engine and drive system.

Among the models we will be offering for sale or rent:

The CR45 was designed with single axle trucks in mind.

The CR50 has an air cooled 64 hp diesel engine that is the most powerful on the market.

The CR50 Palreach is ideal for loading and unloading on tight job sites.

The CR55 has all the features of the CR50 along with a 5,500lb capacity.

The CR65 provides the greatest lift capacity of all the Crayler forklifts.
