kramer 2706

A new compact telescopic handler from Kramer has increased lift capacity and gets more power than its predecessor, as well as a revised hydraulics system for improved loading and handling performance.

The Kramer 2706 making its Lamma debut measures less than 2m wide and offers two cab heights – 1.98m is the lowest, 2.1m gives best all-round visibility.

At 2.7t, the machine’s payload – which can be taken to the full lift height of 5.75m – is 200kg up on the previous model, and the 100-litre/min gear pump hydraulics function like a load-sensing system thanks to electro-hydraulic control and load-independent flow distribution.

A three-mode safety system provides settings to suit different work cycles and options include auto bucket return and variable flow auxiliary hydraulics.

Replacing the previous model’s 68hp Deutz engine with a 75hp Kohler KDI gives the Kramer 2706 more power and apparently “greener” emissions.
