APEX will be the launch pad for the world’s largest all terrain truck mounted access platform, the truck mounted P 1000 top class from Palfinger Platforms.

The P1000 was initially designed primarily for the assembly and service work of wind turbines. It has a lateral reach of 35 m and a maximum working height of up to 102.5 m, with a basket load of 200 kg. The maximum load in the basket is 530 kg.

The platform represents a development of the existing WT 1000, with the established functions of the manufactures Jumbo NX Class. This gives the P 1000 new safety and assistance functions as well, with the set-up width now 60 cm less than the previous model, with no change in performance data.

The P 1000 is mounted on a five-axis all-terrain Faun chassis.  

Apart from the 102.5 m working height giant, six further models will be on Palfinger’s stand, including the P 640 from the Jumbo Class NX series, working height of 64 m, 40.5 m reach and flexible basket rotation of 2 x 200 degrees.

Also on show will be the new P 250 BK from the Light Class; and the P 170 TXE, P 200 AXE and P 160 A models from the Smart Class, All three with a GVW of 3.5 tonnes and compliant with Euro 6 emission regulations.

Visitors to the Palfinger stand will also be able to take a ride in a virtual reality simulator and see two advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and experience the advantages of the Hands Free and Collision Protection functions of the P 1000 on location.
