Peiner's design philosophy has continually revolved around the idea of making grabs which deal with the biggest volume as opposed to grab dead weight. Typically, the grab and bucket lifting ratio's meaning that 60 percent of material is dead weight versus 40 percent grab dead weight. This translates into transporting greater quantities of materials quicker. The wear and tear on the crane structure and its related components is less. Through a combination of innovative design and high quality materials with manufacturing, the desirable weight ratio is attained.
Grab sizes would range from 1 cubic yard or less to more than 50 cubic yards in order to suit the needs of the client. Moreover, Peiner USA Inc. offers a complete service facility and spare parts facility for the units sold in the United States, as well as the addition of new buckets and grabs.
