Difference between Fassi RA and RAL cranes

After a lengthy time among customers, I've run to the same question many times. What on earth is Fassi long boom crane?

Fassi RAL means that the hydraulic extensions on the main boom and jib itself have been extended, ergo long boom variant. Whereas an RA is the standard version.
For example, if you have RAL and RA versions of the Fassi 1650 with 8+6 extensions the outreach and lifting capacity are widely different, even though you have the same number of extensions. 

Below are lifting charts of Fassi 1650 RAL and RA so you can compare them yourself. 1650RA has the most powerful jib it can have L816, in this comparison. You can also have it with an L616 jib. RAL variant has only one jib choice and that is an L616L jib.

The other differences between the variants

RAL model has a less powerful jib and also, it weighs 1730kg more than RA variant. Yet the horizontal outreach of 46m is very good in RAL variants.

The RAL crane itself is mounted straight ahead and not sideways like you usually see with knuckle boom cranes and this means that a long boom variant is not able to haul materials as good.

Below is 1650RAL and below that is 1650RA

You can get Fassi 1650,1950 and 2150 as RAL models. 

Here at Kurko Crane, we have taken the long boom variant into account when talking about different configurations, in the following way: 
KC165L-5 means:
KC: Kurko Crane
165: 165 t/m crane
L: Long boom variant
5: Five axle truck

The main work what we do for the chassis is barely seen, but this part of the process is under the eye. Storage boxes are an important aspect of the mounting process because their existence impacts vitally on the user friendless of the crane truck. Space for storage boxes is limited on a crane...
