Introducing the new and impressive Klaas K1100 RSX

January 25, 2020

We are excited to announce the introduction of the new Klaas K1100 RSX mobile aluminum crane.

German crane and aerial lift manufacturer Klaas has released its latest innovation – the Klaas K1100 RSX. The model is a truck-mounted aluminum crane that boasts many market-leading qualities such as a maximum lifting height of 60m and a bearish 6000kg in lifting capacity. The model was first shown at the Dach + Holz exhibition and has received great interest from the market for its immense reach capabilities.

As one of the larger Klaas truck cranes the K1100 impresses with a maximum hook load of 6000 kg and a winch capacity of 2500 kg. All this with a maximum outrigger width of less than 6 m. Making it ideal in tight construction situations where space is limited and loads needs to be lifted with a long reach.

This new model is equipped with a hydraulic telescopic fly jib, double derricking cylinders, TFR boom system, twin luffing cylinders, crane control system, telescopic winch, separate diesel motor drive concept, extendable counterweight and much more. Features as radio remote control, personal safety mode, 360 degrees continuous rotation, and automatic leveling comes as standard. Hybrid drive is available as an option allowing the machine to be more environmentally-friendly and more fuel-efficient.

The maximum lifting height of 60 m allows for the Klaas K1100 RSX to shine in most challenges as it sets new standards in the segment of mobile cranes with an aluminum boom. In regards to the working range; a load of 2000 kg can be transported 23 m, a load of 1000 kg can be transported 35 m and a load of 500 kg can be transported 45 meters. Unique for these performance values is that the maximum outrigger width is less than 6 m.

Jurgen Vater, CEO of Kranlyft Group comments: ”Klaas keeps taking major steps forward in their development. This release gives us a strong indication of their direction for the future – and it looks bright. The K1100 is a perfect example of a mobile crane that can have limited ground base without having to forego immense reach values.”

Jonas Gadolin, technical director at Kranlyft Group added: “This exciting new model is a strong addition to our range of larger truck cranes. And as always with machines from Klaas you can rely on high-performance and great quality. The K1100 is truly an innovative piece of german engineering and we are looking forward to deliver the first orders. As a dealer that works in parallel with the market we can see how these types of mobile cranes keep finding new ways of use. Easy maneuverability and comfortable handling are combined with the enormous reach of the aluminum boom.”

Klaas started to develop lifts back in the ’50s, the first aluminum crane was built in 1993 and from there the company has grown to be one of the market leaders in the segment. Today their products include trailer and mobile cranes alongside elevating work platforms, construction and furniture lifts, as well as rescue vehicles for the fire service.
