The design philosophy at Peiner has continually revolved around delivering grabs that deal with the largest volume of material vs. grab dead weight. The regular handling ratio for Peiner grabs and buckets is around 60/40, meaning material dead weight of 60 percent vs. grab dead weight of 40 percent. This translates into moving greater quantities of supplies faster. The wear and tear on the crane structure and its related parts is less. Through a combination of manufacturing with innovative design and high quality materials, the desirable weight ratio is obtained.
