Title: LOAD HANDLING TOOL AND HYDRAULIC CRANE COMPRISING SUCH A LOAD HANDLING TOOL
Abstract:
A load handling tool which is to be attached to a crane boom and comprises first and second bucket jaws (10, 30) pivotally connected to a carrier head (2) via a respective pivot arm (11, 31), and an actuating device (4) for pivoting the pivot arms and the bucket jaws in relation to the carrier head. Each bucket jaw (10, 30) is articulately connected to the associated pivot arm (11, 31) and pivotable in relation to the pivot arm between a fold- down working position and a fold-up storing position, wherein the bucket jaws are configured to be located between the pivot arms and to rest against each other in the fold-up storing position. Each bucket jaw can be locked to the associated pivot arm in the fold-down working position by a locking device (14, 34). The invention also relates to a hydraulic crane provided with such a load handling tool.
