Pickerings Plant & FSC-SII

September 2018

The latest additions to the Pickerings Plant fleet all feature the FSC-SII stability system paired with the new range of ‘HS’ supplementary outriggers.

Replacing the existing linear micro switch with the digital encoder already used on the crane outriggers allows ‘mm’ precision measurement of the supplementary outrigger extension. In conjunction with FSC-SII this allows the system to proportionally optimise lifting capacity at every possible outrigger position. With the crane & supplementary outriggers at 25% extension the crane enters L2 enabling rated lifting capacity safely controlled by the inclination sensor. This means that the lift can be completed even in the very tightest of spaces.

Kevin Barber, Transport Manager said  “We have been supplied by FASSI for the last 20 years and their innovative and reliable product has been a large factor in the success of our first class delivery service. The new Volvo FM11 vehicles have been designed and built in conjunction with our long standing supplier Central Crane Technicians and with their technical excellence and Pickerings Plants knowledge of the accommodation industry, we feel we have now designed the best specialist accommodations delivery vehicle in the market”.
